Honouring Our Freedom-fighters...


To give your life for nation's sake
Is patriotism par excellence;
To love your Motherland is prime
-A duty of each citizen;

Though many lived a selfish life,
Courageous few had sacrificed their lives;
If not for freedom-fighters brave,
Could we now till our sacred soil?

A red-letter day is that day
When we had won our precious independence;
We ought to always remember
Those lovely souls who set us free!
Jai Hind! Jai Bharat!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
