Shashank Sahu sends his ‘Sandesh to a Soldier’ from Chhattisgarh. 

Dear Soldier,

I don’t know how I should start my sandesh or what I should say because when it comes to praise our soldiers, one is at a lack of words. Rather, words become useless. I think it is because your importance can't be summed up in a few words.

Soldiers do their duty by keeping India first, above all else. We all have a special place in our hearts and respect for the them. Thousands of soldiers have already been martyred just to protect us from our enemies, but our jawans have protected us in many more situations and made us feel secure. As a civilian, the least we can do is to extend our support to them and make them feel that they are not alone.

I wish they all live a long life and get more strength to work for the nation.

Long live soldiers!

Jai Hind!
Shashank Sahu
Durg, Chhattisgarh
