Gunner Subodh Ghosh

Gunner Subodh Ghosh hailed from Raghunathpur village of Nadia district in West Bengal. He had an inclination to serve in the Army since his younger days. He eventually joined the Army in 2017 after completing his school education at the age of 19 years. He was recruited into 59 Med Regt of the Regiment of Artillery, an important combat arm of the Indian Army, well known for its booming field guns. After serving for two years, he got married to Ms. Anindita in Nov 2019 and the couple had a daughter in Aug 2020.

 

Cross-Border Firing (Uri Sector): 13 Nov 2020

 

During Nov 2020, Gnr Subodh Ghosh’s unit was deployed in Uri sector of J&K. The unit troops were manning the forward posts in the Uri sector along the LOC.  The LOC remained highly active and volatile with ceasefire violations occurring very often and without any warning. The year 2020 continued with ceasefire violations by Pak forces like previous years violating the 2003 ceasefire agreement despite repeated calls for restraint and adherence to the pact during flag meetings between the two sides. In yet another case of ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops opened unprovoked fire in multiple sectors including Dawar, Keran, Nowgaum and Uri sectors along the LOC on 13 Nov 2020.

 

On 13 Nov 2020, Pakistan Army troops initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts from across the border in Uri Sector of Baramulla district. During that period, Gnr Subodh Ghosh was manning one of the forward posts along the Line of Control in the Uri sector. The Pakistani forces used mortars and other weapons during the firing. Indian army responded in a befitting manner to the Pakistani aggression and consequently, a heavy exchange of fire ensued thereafter, which continued intermittently for several hours. However during the heavy exchange of fire, Gnr Subodh Ghosh and his comrade Hav Hardhan Chandra received multiple splinter injuries. They were provided immediate medical aid and evacuated to nearest military medical facility for treatment. But unfortunately Hav Hardhan Chandra and Gnr Subodh Ghosh later succumbed to their injuries and were martyred. Gnr Subodh Ghosh  was a brave and dedicated soldier, who laid down his life in the line of his duty.

 

Gnr Subodh Ghosh is survived by his wife Smt Anindita Ghosh and a daughter.

    When the nation is about to drown,
    There are people standing firm to protect its crown.
    They thrive for the nation day and night,
    Against nature and enemies they stand to fight.

    Without any fear they sacrifice their life,
    Not even thinking about their children and wife.
    The pride of the nation is what they preserve,
    But still don’t get the respect that they deserve.

    Guarding border and sharing shoulder,
    With nothing to eat and dying beneath,
    Their eyes never show that they’ve cried,
    But protecting their people will always make them smile with pride.

    Every time a soldier dies,
    Motherland in grief always cries.

    How would it be for a father to see his son go up to the skies before him?
    How would it be for a mother who still remembers his last words while leaving home “I’ll come back soon, Ma”
    How would it be for a young wife with a 2 years old daughter to dare to imagine her future without him?
    How would be for a sister/brother to look at the home without him?

    But he comes home,
    With medals on his chest,
    Wrapped up in the national flag,
    Telling the nation not to cry,
    As he was a soldier born to die!

    He is your brother,
    Fighting for the same mother,
    Do you even bother or realize his sacrifices?
    It’s high time to acknowledge what they did which you are not able to do,
    Your freedom comes at the cost of their lives.
    Visit a soldier’s home, contribute something to their family, share love, bring smiles to the bereaved families.
    Though the word “Thank You” is not a sufficient one, it’s the least we can all do and say…

    Thank you so much for your service and bravery!!!

    हम कितने बेफिक्र और अपनी मस्ती में गुम थे
    क्यूंकि हमारे लिए सरहद पे तैनात तुम थे

    कितने गर्व और आसानी से तुमने सब लुटा दिया
    वो इंसान ही नहीं जिसने तुम्हारा बलिदान भुला दिया

    ॐ शांति

    जय हिन्द!
