To my martyred father


To my martyred father, my proudest salute

I shall not shed a tear, will not cry; I am resolute.

To my aggrieved and widowed Mother I say,


“Mother, wipe your tears. Do not cry. Nay!

Hold your head high and keep walking on tall

My Father died defending his duty’s call.

His death is not in vain and so what if he is no more?

Mother, he died protecting a value he held to his core.

Celebrate his valor, his virtues, his bravery, lest we forget

And let’s remember him for the sacrifice that he did beget.”

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
