Dear #Hanumanthappa 

 When you were alone guarding the peaks and mounts,

We didn’t care

You were buried beneath ice for days,

Yet we didn’t care 

You came out safe and our eyes opened, 

yet we didn’t care much 

Money, donations, comments, tweets, hashtags

 oh! We do care

Today it’s the second death, they say

But! All we have is a promise: 
To care…
We promise to you daughter that the world will be good 

We promise to your bereaved wife that world will be kind 

A promise to a desolate village that songs of valour will be sung

A promise that we won’t forget why you have done what you did
Death is for mortals,

Not immortals like you
