She looks at the picture carefully. She knows this familiar smile very well. She does a full analysis of the picture. The man in the picture standing behind the terrorists has a very familiar smile. He has arrested the terrorists and has sent back to the parent’s custody. This is not the reason for his smile. He is not smiling at the victory either. He smiled because somebody told him taking pictures with those arrested terrorists. His smile tells her everything. Once, she used to read his brain. She used to know what he was eating or drinking. He often asked, “How you know that”. But, she failed to read only one thing.

This is not the first time, he had done this type of action. He did the same thing in the past. He did stop the attack on a militant for 6 hrs. His attention was clear because he wanted to save him and wanted to return him to his parents. It was a more than 6 hrs long standoff between the military and the police vs the terrorists. The parent of the terrorist was also involved to convince the child but his brain was washed on the name of jihad, so he had refused to surrender the weapon. Later, domestic terrorist including foreign terrorist were killed. This was the brave man whom she loves.
Later, she had received many proofs that had shown a different pic of her loving man. She met with a 15 years old child who was beaten in his custody. The child is related to a poor family and has three sisters. The child was not a militant, but he had supported them. The child cried hysterically. He was so afraid too. Not sure if the child had made up the story. His parents could not have three lakh to save the child’s future. She requested the child if she could pay him back, but the child could not have trusted her because of her name. This was the time when she had to give up, but she could not stop loving him.

The man is brilliant. He knows very well what he is doing. But, he has forgotten only one thing to do. She thinks that he is brilliant but her Di called him, ‘stupid’ which hurt her feelings. Di also called her stupid. It is okay to call her stupid, but she did not like at all calling him with this word. She hopes that he would continue to do something good. It may wash his sins which she is paying the price right now.

What she should think about providing justice at his personal level? He failed to provide justice at the professional level. He has become so weak when it came to providing justice to his loved one. He failed to provide justice to the woman who he had called once the love of his life and called her as a wife. That time, none of them had a smile on their faces. Somehow, she has learned how to fake her smile but people can easily read the sadness behind her smile.

God punishes everybody. Almighty has his own way to punish someone. Almighty has already punished the man which he could not see it now. Eventually, one day It will be clear like a mirror in front of him. Let’s see if he win the gallantry award again at his professional level. She wishes the man the best of luck for doing something good at his professional level.

One thought on “The Familiar Smile

  1. I think being a soldier or a police officer is not an easy thing. People are human. They make mistakes — sometimes hurting even someone who loves them. I know I have done this at times. Only God is perfect. This is sad, but true.
