A Homage To The Freedom Fighters Of India


“A Free India” - That was your only passion

Thanks to your sacrifices, today we are an independent nation.

You all were quite intelligent and hardworking

And could have easily led the life of a king

But you chose the life of danger and struggle

To liberate your motherland from the British government's shackle

You relentlessly fought against the world's greatest colonial power

And successfully helped to blossom India's independence flower.

India will always remain grateful for you peoples' supreme service

You are Mother India's golden children, whom we will always miss.

(This poem is a tribute to those lion-hearted freedom fighters of India, who got us independence from the British government in 1947) .

    Every Indian owes his life and liberty to thse great founding fathers. A real tribute is this poem to those greats. But let us also see what happned 62 years later. We are nurturing new generations sans patriotism, sans any principles. People want to lead a safe life and long forgot their roots.

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
