    In the wild his body may not lieway of all wars.He has put words in his mother's mouth.Mother will not think
    of son, s still body lying in the woods.But war was all around and ways of life at that time.Valour was a false virtue snatching son from old mother.Stop war by all means. All his loved ones are dead.eitherof war or something else. He is alone and in the defense service.Mother will say.donot succumb, I have put enough vitality in you, do not give in, Come back.

    A superb poem depicting the responses of father, mother and elder brother of a soldier on service, on his going abroad on service. Thanks for sharing.
