Indian Democracy Can Be Truly Great! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

If Indians can be patriotic more,
Democracy will thrive in our country;
If love for Motherland is truly great,
More Indians will get awards o'gallantry.

If leaders elected are more honest,
Elections will be held infrequently;
If people nurture civic sense and toil,
The nation will progress tremendously,

If love of fellowmen afills our hearts,
Poverty, illiteracy can't exist;
If duty to the nation remains first,
India can make a meteoric rise.

If women's, children's freedom is ensured,
The nation can forge ahead in great leaps;
If elderly are taken care of well,
God's blessings will be soon upon this land!

If people care for health and avoid vice,
Crime-rates will fall upon this sacred soil;
If love of peace and co-existence stays,
Exemplary will India become soon.
Jai Hind!

    JC, Happy Independence Day to you and all our friends here. I read your independence day poem yesterday and did not have the mood to write the comment. After reading this poem, I am really exhausted, because this poem has so many IFs..When are we going to overcome all these short falls? Not even one gold in Olympics! I hope that you all hoisted the flag, distributed the sweets and return home to have the good rest! (Report) Reply
