Jaws Of Death

She was a femme fatale; the head of state's desire.

Actually, she was a spy at the jaws of death & fire.

Leaking top-secrets, she carved her destiny to inspire.

Will to sacrifice herself for her country took her higher.

      Patriotism is important & makes people do dangerous things & achieve the seemingly impossible-
      Anything for our country...

    1. True Kalpanaji. Women make good spies & normally are not suspected.
      Remember the Vidya Balan starrer Hindi movie- Kahaani?
