I don't know about India but in US, when you are 18, all males have to sign up for it (forget what its called...some sort of a service). And when they call you during war, they call you. Most men would be proud to die for their countries. There is nothing stupid or shameful about it. It is better than dying a selfish, hollow death.
Its called a draft. An as an American I have a problem with how our country pokes their stupid nose into everybody's affairs and tries to police them around.
I rather die a selfish and hollow death to my content, instead of die young for a stupid cause that serves no purpose but to further inflate our ego in defending so called honor and pride. If a war is thrust upon at me, for no rhyme or reason I would be the first to sign up.
But here they are battling an issue for 50 years for a chunk of land. What good is it when you have all the vast spaces of land and you did nothing with it. Its all about who has a bigger dick and people fight for it, and people who sign up for such stupidity for being dicks too since its not a summer camp that they are joining; its bloody freaking war and casualties are to be expected.
Sorry as selfish as Iam, I love my life too much to be stupid enough to enlist myself and become a martyr. No body really give two hoots about me, except my loved ones and its too much unfair of me to be so reckless.
