Epitaphs of Calm

On November 11 and the days leading up to it, we celebrated in Delhi and around India the moment at which the armistice was signed that ended World War 1. Over the past 35 years, I have done the same at Commonwealth War Grave cemeteries around the world, commemorating those who gave their lives in war, including in what was then the bloodiest and first ‘world’ war. These graveyards are proudly and impeccably maintained oases of peace, in stark contrast with the din of battle.
