O you killer peaks of Siachen Cruel have been your whims
Ignoble and insane To unleash your deadly powers
On duty bound sentinels
Without giving them a chance
To fight and prove their mettle
Look, every sensitive heart
Is in a state of shock
Wondering what had prompted you
To play a game so vile.
It was an act of deceit
Vicious and unfair
To trap them so unawares
In that most unjust warfare.
Was it some evil impulse
Overcoming you all of a sudden?
A mischief so mean otherwise
Couldn't be your normal action .
Or did you feel challenged
Insecure or belittled
By the superhuman fortitude
Displayed by the heroes at post .?
No, they hadn't been there
To dare your sky-high stature
Nor to disrupt your pristine solitude
Or blemish your snowy splendour.
They had come there trudging along
The tough mountain terrains
To guard the precious lone posts
Bordering their own motherland
Just to keep a silent vigil
On and around the fields Lest some evil eye should dare
To desecrate the sacred sphere
Yes, they were there to brave
The most inimical climate
And deliver their duty in earnest
As a sacred religious ritual.
Then why did your callous avalanche
Hit them as foes in disguise
Bury them down alive in ice
Hiding from view their very existence?
But be not proud of your deadly assault
Though you have cut short their lives on the earth
The tales of their matchless courage and resolve
Will keep echoing forever and ever
In the hearts of the hills and vales over there !!
