Ensure a life of dignity for the wives of martyred servicemen

We sleep in peace only because we know we are safe. Safe because of the decisions of some men to put the Nation above all else. These men are our Jawans who face extreme conditions both physically and mentally with only one purpose in mind - to defend our country from any harm and that YOU and I can sleep in peace.
Then why is it that when these bravehearts give their life for the purpose of protecting us and our loved ones, we simply go on without taking a pause to understand what their loved ones must go through?
"I want a job to take care of myself and my child. I have not asked for anything specific, I will sweep the floor if I have to, but give me a job is all I ask. Authorities call me now and then and say that I will surely be given a job but for a year I have waited in vain. I am tired. I can't keep pleading with the government for a job. Give me the option of living my life in dignity," - these are the words of Mahadevi Koppad who lost her husband a brave soldier: Hanumanthappa Koppad at Siachen in 2016.
Is this what the value of martyrdom has been reduced to in our Nation?
Give rest to politics, judgement, ulterior motives or simply "I am to busy" and all the excuses we give ourselves that lead to our inaction.
We must ensure that families of servicemen who lose their life for the Nation or those that are currently guarding our borders know well that their families will be taken care off.
There must be a one-window solution that is created for their families.
- All promises of cash, land or others must be provided to the family within a definite time period
- The future of their children in terms of education and healthcare MUST be guaranteed by the Government
- Mothers should be given respectable jobs basis their abilities so they can continue to secure the future of their children
