Calm by nature
Gentle in demeanour
Storm in his heart
Colonel in the front
Fervour his treasure trove
Velvet fist in iron glove
Cared less for his precious life
Leaving the dreams of young wife
infant children to welcome
the colonel back in home
only a dream!
But a sacred duty to Nation
brings the smile in their lives
for he and his fellowmen always
laid their lives - Supreme Sacrifice.
(Colonel Santosh Mahadik martyred on 17.11.2015 at Kupwara in Jammu & Kashmir)
