Honoured Chief guests, Principal, teachers, and fellow classmates. A warm welcome to all of you. Today on this special occasion we all have gathered here to celebrate a day of remembrance for our soldiers. I would like to speak a few words about soldiers.
For many of us, it doesn’t really matter what our soldiers do as we cannot see what they are doing, and what they have sacrificed. Let me share with you this today that being a soldier is not an easy task.
Soldiers sacrifice a lot for the people of their country. They think about the country first and then about themselves, their families, home and loved ones. For them, the love for their country and motherland is much more important than anything else.
We can sleep peacefully because they are there to fight on the borders and protect us. Trust me, a soldiers job is one of the toughest things to do in the world. They have challenging duties and toughest qualities that make them a great soldier.
A soldier performs numerous duties. They safeguard the honour of the country. They have to be alert all the times and they are never off the duty. It’s their duty to maintain peace and harmony in the country. They are responsible for guarding the borders.
They face a lot of challenges in life. The biggest challenge is to stay away from their families. This affects them emotionally too. They do not even get a chance to celebrate festivals with their loved ones as they do not get enough holidays.
Another challenge is the rigorous training they have to undergo to become fit in order to fight battles. This becomes exhausting, and physically challenging too.
They have to be out in the battlefield even in the worst of weather conditions. Their duty is such that heavy rains or scorching sun, it doesn’t matter.
I think we should always respect our soldier’s efforts in protecting us and safeguarding our country. Their hard work should never be forgotten.
Jai Jawan! Jai Hind!
