My Brother With a Bloodied Nose: Emotional poem dedicated to IAF Pilot Abhinandan wins internet

IAF Pilot Abhinandan's story of bravery to be part of Rajasthan's school syllabus

Hours before home return of Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, an emotional poem dedicated to the IAF hero went viral on the social media winning millions of hearts.

Titled My Brother With A Bloodied Nose, the poem sums up what Abhinandan Varthaman has had to go through since his Bison was shot down.

While many believed that Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s sister Adhiti penned down the moving poem, it is actually written by Varun Ramachandran, a Bengaluru-based full-time Management Consultant in a leading MNC. People seem to have taken the word “Brother” used in the poem by Iyer quite literally.

Here is the poem, titled – My Brother With a Bloodied Nose

My brother with a bloodied nose,
An officer and gentleman.
Landed across the Line of Control today.
Ejecting after doing the best he can.

They caught him on their land and then,
Thrashed him like perhaps any of us would.
Till the army stepped in and dispersed them.
And rescued him while they could.

They asked him who he was and he said,
With poise and utmost grace.
A flying pilot of the Indian Air Force.
Battered, bruised, but with a proud face.

If only the general public could,
Muster a milligram of the same poise.
And realise that their war drum beating.
Is a ridiculous dangerous noise.

My brother with a bloodied nose,
He stood there firm and tall.
And smiled in the face of his captors.
And taught us the biggest lesson of them all.

That bravery is not ordered online,
Does not ship overnight on Amazon Prime.
Tis not the moment for jingoism and memes.
For armchair aggro tis not the time.

My brother with a bloodied nose,
Thank you for your dedication and verve.
Your class and bravery I fear though,
Is a little more than some of us deserve.

For those whose fury takes wing today,
Who have no idea what it’s like.
To parachute into enemy territory,
Taking a hit in a combat strike.

My brother with a bloodied nose,
you’ve taught a lesson to us all.
You can bail out of an aircraft at high speed,
And yet to lows never fall.

And keep your cheer and character in times,
Of uncertainty in the face of death.
And learn again to behave as human beings,
If we only would our conscience let.

My brother with a bloodied nose.
Keep your chin up, enjoy the brew.
A salute to your sacrifice today and forever.
Hold on a while, we’re coming to get you.

My brother with a bloodied nose.
The bison who took on the sun.
Here’s to you and all those that stand guard for us.
Nabah Sparsam Diptam.
