Love my roots

I emerged from the soil

to grow and bloom.

Love my roots

like you love my blooms.

 

Make me stand strong and tall.

Make me believe sunlight is a supplement

to your green thumb.

I wrestled with the waves

of the vast sea.

I wanted to  be free

from the violent wind

and help myself unwind.

 

 

Like a seashell: empty and dead

brought by the waves

to the shore

I lay there powerless

and bonehead

until you picked me up

strung up with lights

and made me shine.

If anyone deserves you, they will accept the way you are, accept your truth and love you endlessly and unconditionally with true heart.

Dedicated to everyone out there.

Kohima War Cemetery

The upper view of Kohima War Cemetery – the Tennis Court

The Kohima War Cemetery was built in remembrance of the British and Indian soldiers who gave up their lives during the World War second against the Japanese. This cemetery is dedicated to them who died in the battle of Kohima, the capital of Nagaland, India.

The Japanese 15th Army attacked the British troops stationed in Imphal and Kohima, in 1944. The fiercest battle was fought at Tennis court (destroyed  during  the war) of the  Deputy commissioner’s bungalow. Previously, the Kohima War Cemetery known as Garrison Hill was a Tennis ground of the Deputy Commissioner before it became the battle ground of the soldiers. The battle of Kohima was fought between the 31st Japanese 2nd Division and the British 2nd Division. The Common wealth forces prevailed over the Japanese forces and forced them to retreat in defeat. 

The battle of Kohima and Imphal were voted the ‘Greatest British Battle’ in the world. Today, the Kohima War Cemetery is maintained by Common Wealth War Graves Commission. It is neatly maintained and throwing litters and even carrying eatables stuffs inside is strictly prohibited.

At the lower end of the Cemetery there’s an epitaph that reads, ” When you go home, tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow we gave our today.”  The epitaph is a fitting prelude to those give up their life  for a noble cause, far away from home. The most popular inscription all around the World.

The second world war most popular epitaph.

Visitors

At the top of the Cemetery there’s a dome like memorial structure, commemorating 917 Hindus and Sikh soldiers cremated according to their faith.

The war cemetery of Kohima has been visited by many dignitaries, the Duke of York visited the War Cemetery in May 2010. How would it be to die in a strange and foreign land — far away from home. I imagined. Salute to all the brave soldiers. Only a flower stood by their graves to watch over them. 

25 hours on a train.

A random view from a window.

With much excitement, I packed my stuffs to get back home. Nine months being away from home was a hard time. I had to travel 1436 miles by rail to reach home. We expected the train to arrive sooner but it got delayed by some minutes. 

There the train arrived and I stepped in with my giant – size luggage along with my friends. Searched for our seats and settled down.

I didn’t had anything to do. I thought of doing something productive by reading books which I had them in my bag but I couldn’t because of some circumstances.

I slept the whole day and night. I woke up only for lunch and dinner. The night was cold because we were in the AC compartment. I couldn’t sleep peacefully because I had to hear all the noises and I was also feeling hungry. The food that we got there was not at all tasty. It just made me feel more hungry. (Haha)

  Then, I saw a beautiful sunrise. We reached our destination and  we were very elated.

We boarded. I saw my mom waiting, to pick me up. Words couldn’t describe how happy I was to see my mom after nine months. We greeted each other with a smile – a smile of joy.

As she was taking me home, on the half way, I realized that I had exchanged my luggage with someone else. I was so worried thinking if I could ever get my luggage back if it’s taken by some unknown people. So, I had to open the luggage to check whose luggage it actually was. It was one of my junior’s luggage. I didn’t had his number to rang up. There again, I had to call every friend to ask them his number. 

With much difficulty, I got his number but couldn’t reached. What a day. After few hours, he rang me up. We met and we got our luggages back. 

Though the day started this way, I had a good day with my family.
