“Either I will come back after hoisting the Tricolor, or I will come wrapped in it, but I will be back for sure" – Kargil Shahid Vikram Batra (1974-1999)
If I die in a War Zone, Box me up & send me Home, Put my medals on my Chest, Tell my Mom I did my best, Tell my Dad not to bow, He won’t get tension from me now, Tell my Brother to study perfectly, Keys to my Bike will be his permanently, Tell my Sis not to be upset, Her Bro will not rise after this sunset, Tell my Love not to cry… “Because I am a SOLDIER Born to Die” - That’s a Soldiers Poem and they live by it and the Soldier Dies.
What happens to the martyr’s loved ones his old parents, his siblings, his Wife and his Children?
Vasantharatna Foundation for Arts (VRFA) is an organization lead by the Veer Naari Mrs. Subhashini Vasanth W/o Shahid Vasanth Venugopal channeled her grief and took a pledge to support the Families of the Veer Martyrs by “Empowering the Widow of the Martyr and educating the Children of the Martyr”. She and VRFA live by their pledge.
I take the opportunity of strengthening VRFA in their tryst by running the TCS 2018 10KM and raising funds for them for the 4th year in continuation. I urge each one of you to help me and join me in supporting Mrs. Vasanth & her team to give a better life to the Martyrs families. Our small contribution will allow the martyr to Rest in Peace and be assured his sacrifice has not gone in vain.
Please do not let me down and continue to support me as you have been doing in the last 3 fund raisers.
