Poetry : India

Progenitor of destinies
And land of many million dreams is You
Home to ancient civilizations & cultures
And gateway to modern wonders is You

Clinching freedom unparalleled in history
Breaking shackles of bondage is You
Like a Mother selfless in thoughts and deeds
For eons nurturing and nourishing us all is You

Crucible of colors and races and faiths
yet creator of a common identity is You
Gentle demeanor yet firm in resolve
Torchbearer of a peaceful future is You

Lofty Himalayas to green ghats of  West
Blazing rivers from Ganges & Godavari to Kaveri
Golden harvests on fertile expanses across
Enriched and embellished with these is You

Besides a myriad virtues and joys abound
It wrenches our hearts each time you bleed
Promise we shall to strive for glory
And live each day the ideals of Independence, we owe You !

**Wishing all my friends and readers a very Happy Independence Day**
