When dreams turn sour

Her desire to serve the nation
Ended in a terrible frustration
And losing her head
She shot herself dead
So much for the army as a vocation!

She had joined, only to find
To ‘supplies’, she had been assigned
Her duties were a fright
Attending parties at night
And ‘catering’ – she lost peace of mind.

For the army she may have been a catch
But when roles and desires are mismatch
It has often been found
That such tragedies abound
To career counseling, let us importance attach!

TOI 17/06/06: Disillusioned with her job, a lady Army officer committed suicide by shooting herself with a rifle in Udhampur, the headquarters of the Northern Command. Read about it here
