Patriotic video by head constable from Mandi goes viral

A video of a patriotic poem penned and recited by a head constable of Himachal Pradesh police has gone viral on the social media.

It was uploaded by Head Constable Manoj Kumar on ‘Kargil Day’ (July 26) but it went viral in the aftermath of the Uri terrorist attack yesterday. Born on 23 April 1983 in Kathogan village of Tikker pancyat in Sarkaghat subdivision Manoj Thakur is posted in Kinnaur at present.

The video is being shared by thousands of people on Facebook, WhatsApp and other social networking websites and the family members of Manoj, who is currently posted at Kinnaur, came to know about it from others.

The 130-second video with Manoj reciting the poem was shot on a bus carrying police personnel.

The video sendsa warning to Pakistan that any “misadventure” would “wipe it out from the world map”.

It says, “abki yudh hua to Kashmir to rahega par Pakistan nahin hoga” (if there is another war, Kashmir will survive but Pakistan won’t) and “hum Pakistan ke bomb se nahin, Tashkent aur Shimla samjhauton se darte hain” (We are not scared of Pakistan’s bombs but ofTashkant and Shimla pacts) and reminds Pakistan of its defeats in the hands of the Indian army in 1965, 1971 and 1999.

“Remember the 90,000 prisoners of the 1965 war and the favour of Indira (Gandhi),” the poem says and warns, “There would be India on both sides of the Indus river and the Indian flag would fly over Islamabad.

After learning about his viral video from others, Thakur said that he was grateful to Indians who were inspired by his sentiments. Read his message below.

“Dear Indians, I am overwhelmed by the affection I have received from you. You are my inspiration. I am proud of my motherland. I thank crores of Indians who respected my emotions and watched my video by taking out their precious time. I am grateful to the media for showcasing my video. Today I realized that when Indians shower love on someone, they do it generously. Jai Hind, Jai Maa Bharti, Vande Mataram, Jai Hind Ki Sena.” – Manoj Thakur

The entire poem which is on everyone’s lips now was, however, originally taken from Balika Sadhvi Thakur who has demanded India to give a befitting reply to Pakistan.
