Happy Independence Day! (66th Independence Day Of India 15.08.2012) - Poem by Rangarajan Kazhiyur Mannar

Sixty five years of self-rule to empower
Sustained the serene democracy
Unmindful of the troublesome neighbor
upheld our faith, integrity and policy

While the whole world got depressed
Reeling under the severest recession
We Indians took it in its stride, composed
For our wants limited and belief stubborn!

Belief that we can win amidst any crisis
Conviction that we can triumph despite odds
Self-confidence that we can ward off troubles
Combination of all these, keeps us going forwards!

Forward looking as we are, let's still be beware
Let's stand up against the forces that make us bend
Let's promote harmony and candor in our venture
Let's well stick to the principles that we behold!

Long live India and our democracy!
Long live our unity amidst diversity!
Long live our avowed wish for harmony!
Long live our goal of peace with prosperity!
