Even if you sacrifice yourself,

who cares abt ppl who complain...
I guess if we r satisfied then it doesn't matter.

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.

The mere mention of armed forces evokes the image of courage, bravery and discipline in India. However, in north-east India and Jammu and Kashmir, the picture is vastly altered. Military force is synonymous with fear, brutality and suspicion. The main reason behind this contradictory public image is the “draconian” law, Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act. It has vested the armed forces with absolute power mainly to aid fight against terrorism and insurgency.
