Martyr Captain Ashutosh Kumar, 25, of Indian Army’s 18 Madras Regiment was martyred in a fierce exchange of fire with terrorists near LoC in J&K’s Kupwara sector on Nov 8th 2020. He gunned down two militants before being hit by bullets.
A bachelor, he leaves behind his parents and two sisters. “I am sad I have lost my son at a young age, but I am proud that he sacrificed his life for the nation. And that’s what he was trained for,” said the proud father of the young martyr.
One of his juniors at school said that he was a brilliant student who could have easily cracked NEET or JEE, but his patriotism and love for the motherland made him join NDA.
We salute the awakened soul and feel proud at the same time, of the patriotic spirit of our citizens.
A Tribute to Our Martyrs We both left home at 18. You cleared JEE, I got recommended You got IIT, I got NDA You pursued your degree, I had the toughest training Your day started at 7 and ended at 5, Mine started at 4 till 9 Some nights also included. You had your convocation ceremony, I had my POP
Best company took you and Best package was awarded, I was ordered to join my Paltan with 2 stars piped on my shoulders
You got a job, I got a way of life.
Every eve you got to see your family,
I just wished I got to see my parents soon
You celebrated festivals with lights and music,
I celebrated with my comrade in bunkers.
We both married,
Your wife got to see you every day,
My wife just wished I was alive
You were sent to business trips,
I was sent on line of control.
We both returned
Both wives couldn’t control their tears, but
You wiped hers, I couldn’t
Because I was lying in the coffin,
With medals on my chest and
Coffin wrapped with tricolour,
My way of life ended, Your continued
We both left home at 18
