Yes,I'm an engineer from General Category struggling for future. When my mind is caught between the war of giving up and making a try once more, my heart instructs me to persist no matter how difficult the situations become.
He came back home after 3 long years to his 5 year old daughter and a beautiful wife at home,after the military granted him permission to go back and spend some quality time with his family.
As border disputes were not so frequent so the work pressure was somewhat less as expected.
When he stepped at the door and rang the bell,both his wife and daughter had no idea that who is this unknown guest. When his wife opened the door ,she was shocked to see her husband after 3 long years. The feeling was like her heart popped out of her mouth and fell into her hands. Her happiness knew no boundaries and tears flooded her cheeks. She hugged him so tight that almost squeezed breath out his lungs. He cried too as he missed his wife and daughter insanely and kissed her. Behind mother's back was the daughter standing, couldn't figured it out who the man was and why her mother was crying so hard laying on his chest . As she last saw her father when she was 2 years old,she could barely remember the lines and structure of her father's face. Then her mom wiped her tears,knelt down on her knees and said..'honey,he is your papa '. The daughter stared at him for a minute,then she unlocked the locket which hung on her chest ,compared the photo of her father and the man and then she ran and hugged him on his waist. Her tears completely soaked his trouser and they were hardly stopping. He picked her up and kissed her tender cheeks and his daughter slapped him hard and asked' why you left me and mommy alone for so many years '? Father laughed and said because the country needes me honey ,but don't worry as papa is not going anywhere now.
The daughter casted an innocent smile and touched her father's face to feel those faded lines again which beared the wrath of heat,cold and dust,and father now cried too and kissed her tiny fingers lifted her up in arms and kissed her forehead.
The family was illuminated with love again. The unknown silence that surrounded the walls were now echoed with the noise of the laughter of the father and daughter playing together and mumma rejoicing this precious moment from the couch.
Everything was fine until after a week the husband received an urgent call which was from the military base. Through,the phone call he discovered that the war had broke out suddenly and the army and his country wants him right at that moment .
His wife was upset with the news but she had no other choice than to accept it and allow him to go. After that everything passed very quickly and finally daughter and mother came at the door step to wave him adieu and good luck. The soldier couldn't bear their wet faces and came close to them and said 'don't worry honey,I'll be back as soon as the war ends '. And he kissed both his daughter and wife on the forehead and gave her locket which he made himself. Inside the locket was a small picture of the family playing . Both,daughter and mother were watering their tear stains constantly and daughter said daddy,please come back safe and soon. The army truck arrived and the soldier sat inside and waved them a bye. After that their life kind of paused. Somehow they were passing the days and praying for his well being and wishing he comes back soon.
Time new no bounds,and one month passed,autumn came and dry leaves welcomed the cold air that blew through the cracks Finally the radio announced that the war was over. The country had won the war ,but unfortunately numerous soldiers were martyred. The wife and daughter were just praying day and night that may their hero come back home safe and soon. 3 days later a truck arrived at their gate,many officials gathered at the door alongwith 21 soldiers. Both mother and daughter didn't had any idea what was it all about?
Behind the crowd lay a coffin wrapped with the country's flag ,the officers accompanied the mother and daughter towards that coffin. Slowly and slowly the pall bearers removed the lid,and the mother and daughter were taken aback. They didn't knew how to react,they were motion and emotion less. Inside the coffin was resting their hero with his eyes closed forever. His wife had no emotions on her face and she sat on the ground beside the coffin,and her daughter placed her head on her father's cold chest to just hear a single beat cause it was impossible for her to believe that she lost her most precious jewel which she would never find back.
The daughter then sat beside her mother and both just looked towards the man who was resting peacefully forever . Tears slipped through the prison of their eyes slowly and slowly,and one of the officials handed a souvenir to the mother. It was a locket which was found inside the pocket of the ..martyr. When his wife opened the locket,she discovered that it was the replica of the same locket that his husband had given her on the day ,leaving for the war. It also had the same picture of the family.
The mother and daughter couldn't help themselves and burst out crying. They prayed to God loudly that 'please bring him back to us,don't do this to us ' . But God had his own will.
The lid covered the corpse in the coffin and it was lifted up by the pall bearers. The final journey from the house of a great dad,loving husband and a brave soldier started which was to be ended at the crematorial ground finally.
The daughter said to her mother 'don't cry mommy,he was a great man and people will always remember him for his beautiful soul. He will always watch us from the heaven and whenever the rain comes,we'll get know that daddy is missing us and that's why he's weeping from above.
