68th Independence Day of India (15th August,2014)

Don't ask me who I am?
Don't tell me who I am?
By birth and by blood, I'm Indian;
I love my Motherland, Bharat.

I live upon such sacred soil;
I love my land and love to toil;
I'm proud about my heritage;
Peace within and to others is our message.

Our freedom came by sacrifice;
All Indians must always stay wise;
We must preserve our integrity;
We must ensure our security.

Many precious lives were lost;
Freedom came at a heavy cost;
Divisive forces have no place;
Let Indians wear a smiling face.

Let neighbors learn to live in peace;
Let foes all transgressions well cease;
Our strength lies in its billion souls;
We'll venture forth to space with goals.

Corruption will be wiped out by roots;
Terrorism will have no off-shoots;
Our patriotism will shine;
Our nation will be rich and fine.

To God, we express gratitude;
Let us all change our attitude;
Let prosperity be our aim;
Let's live unto our good name with fame.
Jai Hind; Jai Bharat!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
