Dear Binu, It's a splendid satirical attempt on the current socio political scenario of many countries. I appreciate the idea of..what you give is what you get through these lines...Know not that each war plants seeds for the next! The most touching part is....It brings more wreaths than laurels; widows than medals! Keep up the good work. Best wishes.

You have very aptly exposed their nexus. Kudos! Dr. Binu. " A war's never been a good solution" . Indeed!
