While self interrogating himself the book remembered the another part of the story that the martyr who lost his life just to save the innocent people and didn’t thought twice before risking his life for the unknown people was also his student.This thought again raised a new set of questions in the mind of the book.Even,the soldier was my student.So how could the same book teach different lessons to different students?How,one could be the destroyer of humanity and other could be the saviour of mankind?
