I Salute those



We have seen many conquer the astronomical summit of the mountain; baring their chests against the mighty winds,
But I salute those who have conquered their conscience; followed its righteous voice to blend themselves profusely with the Almighty.

We have seen many conquer the battlefield; win even its most minuscule cranny with their tales of stupendous valor and unflinching bravery,
But I salute those who have conquered the sacrosanct virtue of peace; existing in celestial harmony with the blessings of the Creator.

We have seen many conquer the ferociously raging fires; succeeding in quelling its flames with frantic efforts of their adroit bodies,
But I salute those who have conquered pain; learn to progress shoulder to shoulder with what destiny has had to inevitably offer them.

We have seen many conquer gargantuan loads of wealth; reach the unbelievable zenith; having their pockets replete with glistening gold and silver,
But I salute those who have conquered desire; the lecherous wave of dictatorial fanaticism; which ruins countless innocent lives.

We have seen many conquer the stars; reach planets beyond the earth in the most ingeniously designed spacecrafts,
But I salute those who have conquered greed; breathe in blissful buckets of air in the sparse area of mud they were bestowed upon.

We have seen many scream their lungs; shout in profound hysteria to make their voice heard even beyond the satiny clouds,
But I salute those who have conquered their hearts; poignantly executed the message of its beats; even though it meant ultimate disaster in every arena of survival.

We have seen many live without food and water for days; accomplish incredulous feats; to register their place forever in the all time book of records,
But I salute those who have conquered their expectations; sacrifice their sole objects of worship; entirely for their fellow compatriots who needed them even the slightest.

We have seen many lovers making promises galore; romancing in the aisles of insatiably unrestricted passion; even after the sun had arisen,
But I salute those who wholesomely relinquished the tiniest longing of their lives; dedicate their lives to make this world a better place to live.

And we have seen many sorrowfully accepting the irrevocable atmosphere of death; sadly bidding adieu to the heavenly pleasure of this Universe,
But I salute those who rejoiced at closing the chapter of existence; emanated a divinely smile while laying down their lives for their country; remained immortal even after dying in the minds of each of their countrymen wandering; and those still waiting to be alive.
