Indian Army Soldier's last Letter: War has broken out I am leaving. May not come back. Living on your own, handling the family. Never live with anyone. Take care of parents. These were the last words of martyr Lance Naik Ratan Singh to his wife. The martyr's granddaughter Khushi listened to her grandmother Lilavati. Khushi, a Class 11 student, has been hearing stories of her grandfather's courage and grandmother's struggle since childhood. Inspired by Dada's bravery, she also wants to become an officer in the army and has already started preparing for it. Lance Naik Ratan Singh was martyred at the age of 25 while fighting valiantly for the country in the 1971 war with Pakistan. At that time Lilavati was 22 years old and her son Sanjay was only one and a half years old.
Balidani Ratan Singh fought the war of 1962 and 1965
Lilavati says that her husband had fought the wars of 1962 and 1965 as well, but in the war of Pakistan in 1971, she gave up her life for the country by fighting bravely. She told that her husband was on leave and that he was going to take the posting along with him. When the war started, Ratan Singh told his wife to take care of the parents and the son. Never stay on your own, stay on your own. The same was the last day when martyr Nayak Ratan Singh left his wife Lilavati forever and martyred for the country while fighting valiantly in the war with Pakistan.
Could not see her husband's last
Lilavati says that so many soldiers were martyred in the war that no one's body was brought home nor did the body of martyr Ratan Singh come home. Only the urn and box of their flowers came to the house. Lilavati says that the box that came to the house located in the village of Sanja Pur had her uniform and bed. During this time the village was flooded and she went out to earn the responsibility of the house. When the village came back and saw, the box was filled with water. Due to the filling of water everything was spoiled.
Khushi heard the story of grandmother's struggle
Khushi is excited to hear her grandmother's story of never giving up. Veer bride Leelavati states that her son Sanjay was only one and a half years old and the only elderly mother-in-law at home was Panveshwari Devi and father-in-law Rishal Singh. The entire responsibility of the house fell on his shoulders. Thought about earning money by moving to another city, but she could do nothing by taking such a young son with her. So she left the son in the army hostel and went to Punjab to work. Lilavati told that for the first time she left home for work alone. The train went on crying all the way. In one year she came to hostel to meet her son, bathed her son, fed him and then left for sleep and left again. The son had forgotten him when he came to meet for the second time. At the same time, she also got a job in a company, so she started working with her son.
Son made customs officer
Lilavati says that when her son Sanjay became intelligent, he used to say that where is our father, then he would say that when he brings good numbers in high school, then the father will be happy. After this, after passing high school, the son asked if he said that son your father is now with God. Now I am your mother and father. Whatever I want, I will bring Lilavati said that her son too worked very hard in studies in view of his mother's circumstances and now he is a customs officer. The family of Shaheed Ratan Singh lives in Vivekananda Nagar.
