NDA life

We both left home at 18,
You cleared JEE,
I cleared UPSC for NDA. 
 You got IIT,
I got NDA. 
You persued your degree,
I had the toughest training. 
Your day started at 7 and ended at 5,
Mine started at 4 till 9 and
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 everyday,
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 her but,
I couldn't...
You hugged her but,
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 🇮🇳
