He received the news. His beloved was giving birth to a baby, his baby.
Standing at the crossroads in life, he thought about his destiny; his country’s fight against injustice.
He’d escaped jaws of death, time and again.
Death couldn't stop his destiny.Would life succeed where death had failed?

  2. His baby will be his representative.
    Great that he has escaped the jaws of death & will get reunited with his family.
    Wish we can gift our children a world where there are no fights over borders or injustice...
    Nicely expressed that too in exactly 50 words, Kiran :)

  3. We know life because of death. We can only define life from the reference point of death. In fact life is thread having two ends as birth and death. Birth & death are two sides of a coin. A baby is born because someone has died somewhere. If there will be no death, there will be no birth.
