This Is My India And I Am Proud Of Her - Poem by Chandini Jaswal

From the beautiful mythology,
to the Indian ideology,
This is my India and I am proud of her.

Goddess Parvati had here won her lord,
Mighty king Ashoka had here won the war,
This is my India and I am proud of her.

This is our policy: that while entering the temples, we take off our boots,
This is our policy: that children need to be connected to their roots.
This is my India and I am proud of her

Despite the history,
our country remains secular,
which may seem peculiar;
Because we Indians believe what had happened was a part of our destiny.
We believe, it was written in our fates, that together we will conquer victory.
This is my India and I am proud of her.

It is no where written that a particular gender,
will always surrender.
It is nowhere written in the religious books,
that you'll be favored if you are white or have good looks.
It is actually a myth,
Established by the uneducated filth.

We are respectful and that is why we are quite,
We realize,
that by staying quiet, we act wise.


The world can comment,
but I assure you, they will lament.
Let's together reach new heights,
Let's together, take India to where it actually stands.

When India can stand with us during good and bad,
then why can't we do the same?

Let's play the brain gain,
rather than brain drain.

Let's together walk towards the bright light,
You may feel it is useless,
but in the end, you'll realise that we were right.

Let's feel proud of being an INDIAN

    your lines make me think of the emancipation that India needs regarding women and slavery. there should be a revolution that will bring such radical changes. thank you. write, write. tony

    Absolutely wonderful tribute to the Indian people! I have many friends from and in India, I find them to be a gentle, caring and compassionate people, whom I very much admire and respect. Here in the U.S. I have made friends with many people from India, they teach me of your culture, which I love learning about! Most are brilliant, learned and wise and I am very glad to have met them. If all goes well health wise, I plan to visit India very soon, I can hardly wait to experience everything I have learned about! Thank you for sharing, RoseAnn (Report) Reply
