This story tries to take you in the life of a family that has recently lost its provider. This story takes you to meet the family of an ignored soldier. This story shows you the stark contrast between two soldiers who died for the same country, one who is given the respect and honor that he rightly deserves and the other who is unfortunately ignored just because he died in a remote corner of the country. This story is not about drawing comparisons but of showing the misfortune of a section of soldiers who also deserve honor and whose families need the support of the country morally and financially.
