A Soldier Is Never Off Duty. This line suits defence soldiers perfectly. For our soldiers, holidays and vacations are almost non-existent. A Gujarat resident Esha Shah shared a touching experience relating to a Navy officer she came across while standing in a queue at Mumbai airport days before Diwali.
Esha, in an emotional tale, shared a story of a soldier on her Facebook account, who was leaving to meet his family on occasion of Diwali. While the soldier in Indian Navy was standing in the queue, he got a call only to find out that his leave had been cancelled just moments before he was on his way to board the flight who then called his mother informing cancellation of holidays.

This left Esha overwhelmed, and also made her think about the life we take for granted, which is for them is actually a luxury. As a way to express her gratitude, Esha offered the soldier her place in the queue.
