Gyalo by Lingo Jamtsho
As he dons the Olive Green, Lieutenant Dorji wonders if his life would get better than the one he had endured for four rigorous years. Is he prepared to face the world and serve his motherland - Palden Drukpa - in a world where bullets and IEDs are becoming the order of the day? “Remembering the Two Golden Rules, he smiled to himself. Life in the army was quite funny in some ways. But they have their reasons....the unconditional obedience from a subordinate is a must to get things done. Where else do you have to ask your subordinates to go into the perils of unknown, from where you are not even sure whether you will come back alive? And from where coming in a body bag is more enticing than being alive in someone’s hands? There are no rooms for questions and excuses. “And he remembered these beautiful lines neatly painted on the walls of the anteroom of Oscar Squadron: - Ours is not to question why Ours is but to do or die” Gyalo is a tale of every soldier and provides a sneak peek into what goes behind the scene in becoming a soldier. It is a story of sacrifices our men in uniforms make in the line of duty so that we continue to enjoy freedom at home.
