Treasure Island

Shila Sinha


Our brave boys


Who were they
Near the stranded, distressed people
Deserted, isolated, lost all hopes of life,
In devastating catastrophe
That took away their all treasure,
Within a second leaving them void.
Our brave selfless soldiers,
Took the plunge to save them,
Bring them back the desire for life,
Racing against time,
At the cost of their precious life.
They are the saviours of thousands lives.
Rescued stranded pilgrims.
Flying against the adverse weather
Biggest challenge of evacuation ever made,
In this universe by our dauntless, valiant soldiers.
Salute to these brave boys,
Who took the bull by the horns.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
