Independence Day Parade
In colorful attires
By the roadside.
So precious in life
Has arrived this day
It's time to rejoice.
In rhythmic steps
Are coming this way
In the middle of the road.
In peoples' hands
At head of the bands
Flags wide as the road.
At front are banners
Of schools and towns
Of various kinds.
From above somewhere
Children and elders
Cheer and cheer.
Filled with joy
Are sweet indeed.
Right of all
Protecting it is
Our prime duty.
Live this life
With dignity and pride
Let others live
As freely as you.
