Amar Jawan Photostory


In the memories of Kargil War.

Performance at Antardhwani 2015, Delhi University


Waves lap against our boat, as we wait in the cold
wrap our selves in our coat, waiting for the order to be told


Watching all our mates watch us, each thinking the same as the other
Are we going to fight tonight, stand side by side like brothers


Orders been given and off we go, terrifying noises all around
Bombs exploding in our sight, machine guns are the other sound


The enemy is near the footsteps are loud
But we will not give in we stand together proud


Family in unit, brothers in blood
Fighting our corner, covered in mud


No one sees the fear in our eyes, waiting to see if its our time to die
Not wanting to die this way, but no other choice is what they say


So here I lay in eternal sleep, replaying my life as a soldier
Would I change a single thing, would I still be here if war didn’t begin
