Silent Warrior

The silent warrior keeps fighting...

He doesn't tire,he doesn't lose.
he may be bruised..but he knows how to get up again.

There have been moments when we have loved him...he obliged and kept fighting for all of us.
There were times when we doubted his strengths...he still went out to fight against the strongest of enemies.

We got nervous for him as we loved him...
We got anxious for him as we wanted him to succeed.

but i think...nerves,anxiety,success and failure are for the mere mortals like us..

Warrior doesn't get nervous,sad or happy.
We do..

We may be unsure of his skills
but he himself knows how to rise to the occasion...

Battle after battle..
He just

raises his Arms in the air ,

throws his head backwards

offers himself and his weapons to the GODs up there...


and we ,the mortals...
Hail the warrior whom we have seen all our lives...fighting for us.

The greatest becomes greater.

I would never forget the moment, warrior paid tribute to the one who he lost just a day before...
that day, he turned from mere mortal to being a GOD

Yar there is so much to learn ....The calmness and the composure with which he keeps going is something that sets him apart.

We are lucky to have born just at the right time to grow and to see him grow in all these 21 years.

@All - All of us can learn so much from the master...

the first thing that i am trying to model is the equanimity he shows.
It may take a life time to learn...but its worth trying...
