62,208 Stitches | 384 hours

A Warrior of the Thar
An Ambush Aficionado
His Eyes Smoulder
With Fiery Bravado

Keeping at Bay
Emotional Flood
He Stains Sandy Seas
With Infidel Blood

Many a Peril Conquered
Many a Battle Won
Many a Legend Birthed
Braving the Blistering Sun

Reared to Snatch back Life
From Death’s looming Altar
He’s Thar’s Unshakable
Rock of Gibraltar
