History is a subject, full of great names
Like Mahatma Gandhi and Subhash Chandra Bose.
It tells us about our freedom fighters
and also about our great writers.
History also tells us about many wars,
stretching from the A.D's,
it finds its way through the B.C's.
History is full of incidents,
But we shouldn't repeat it's errors.
Learn the lessons of our
defeats and subjections,
So that we wont repeat them again.
(I wrote this poem for the Inter-school poem competition held during
independance day and got the second prize.)
