Death before dishonor…..
The code of army conduct, the ultimate motto. 3 words which can instigate burning fury in the heart of the brave and the good. In an world of dishonest, disloyal runts it is not easy to be straight forward. But that what separates men from boys. So what does it take to be honorable, well every person has a different perspective towards it but end of day the fact remains the same that it is better to die rather be disloyal.
I came across this saying may be ten years ago while going thru some book.Since then its been a part of my lifestyle. So let me explain the concept as per my point of view. To me honor is keeping up the principles that you believe in, to keep up the promises made no matter what the situation. Never give up on your principles no matter what. As the Ghorkas would say Kafar Hunu Bhanda Marnu Ramro (Better to die than live like a coward) now that’s honor n valor. Its true pen is mightier than the sword. When words as such can motivate the heck out of any brave-heart.
What is the point of life if there is no principles involved and followed.It is easy to say that we have honor but very difficult to show it in action. The world does always need a hero at times needs a monster to show the value of goodness. As the great dictator Mussolini said ” It is with valor i say that i have done few mistakes in life, but it was only to protect my honor”. The ideology behind this is simple never never give up in what you believe in no matter the odds. The world is a battlefield not every one shall fight with honor, that does not make up a reason for the others to not to follow the code of honor. You see not all are meant to be knight in shining armour. Thats what seperates men from boys
Cheers to life
