About the Book
At a time when people wear their faith on their sleeves and are ready to attack each other in the name of religion, the armed forces offer an island of hope. A soldier does not die for his religion but for the pride of his regiment which is invariably associated with pride of the nation. A Soldier's Faith is replete with folklores, legends, and some true stories of soldiers' bravery and courage that have been shaping the faith system of Indian troops for decades.Whether a soldier is able to recite a hymn or a prayer properly or not does not make a difference, as long as he is able to align himself with his regimental war cry.The question is-if our army has been able to evolve its faith that unifies all religions, why can't our countrymen, or for that matter, the citizens of a globalised world not do ittime, really, is running out.
