The Brave do live forever

This is a statue of the great Warrior King - Maharana Pratap. This statue is on one of the busy intersections of Gurgaon - I'm not sure how many people passing through that road actually have had a look at this, but I couldn't resist clicking this. Maharana Pratap was one of the greatest warriors of this land and the locals will always have a story about him to tell you. His horse, Chetak is as famous for its bravery as its rider. It is believed that Chetak continued to gallop around the battle field for sometime even after his head was cut off, moments before he actually fell down forever. Thats what makes me believe - The brave do live forever, they do.
