Happy Independence Day / Hoist The Flag Of Freedom And Victory


The Time riding on the mighty wings of cloud
Floods the world with hails and pours
Some centuries are swept to ocean
Some rise with the rise of New Era's sun;
After the voyage of centuries done
All the hurdles overcome
The Fairy is awake shaking off the slavery's slumber
Standing again in beauteous form,
Again the mother's conscience awaken
The fright of heart is dropped and shaken,
Fanning again the fond wings of maternity
For a grand advance of glorious futurity.
Golden birds, though no more nesting
On every branches of golden cresting,
The mighty marching of days and years
Giving her wings the power's cheers,
Brightening the shine of her sacred halo crown
Of greatness-love and peace profound.
She has her wings building strong
Flapping for the flight far and long,
Laying her hands on her children's sturdy shoulders
To stand and leap for far-fetched flight.
The passing years are healing her wounds
Some worthy sons greet her march on drumming sounds,
The lamps of souls of dedicated lives
Burn brightly to give her light.

Let no her men again burgle her wall
Of Faith to give her stroke to stumble and fall,
To break her heart fatally again
Compelling her efforts to the slavery again;
Let no betrayal should chain her freedom
No more treason should pierce her bosom.

Let your devotion should mighten her power
Your truest service should patriotism shower.
Broken are shackles of centuries slavery
So hoist the flag of freedom and victory.
Sing the anthem of nation's dignity
For all her grandeur, her sole serenity.

    A poem burning with patriotic zeal and ringing with rhyming words! The picture drawn is colourful! But is our country free from all shackles that chain her down? The poem is brilliant, but donot fully agree with the facts brought out!

    How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master’s bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done.- I Mahatma Gandhi

    what can i say......perfect and breathtaking........happy independance day sir (Report) Reply
