A poem dedicated to Rajasthan Camel Forces.
The hooves of the camel whispered to the sand,
Let us pass this desert as we are on a mission,
A mission which no one would conceive.
The laboured breath of camels howled…
Sent shrills in the dry wind…
What is the mission? Sand wondered,
Are you on a mission to the battlefield?
Or return of the victorious troupe!
After a painful silence, there fell a tear
A tear which was licked away by the scorching sun..
Return of the victorious troupe I swear,
The valour and might of the brave heart, I witnessed.
Words fell silent. And the camel whispered,
The soldier on my back is limp and heavy.
His heart ceased to beat, but left a message,
Take me to my soul, my world!
She bid me farewell and promised
Will wait… wait to the end of the world.
Let us pass.., whispered the hooves
We are on a mission,
A mission that no one would conceive…
Sand rustled in despair and drifted in agony…
May you…May you..!!
