Rooting for Our Land…

August 14, 2009


It’s eve of the our Independance Day and here is my hearty Happy Independance Day wishes for my fellow Indians in India and all over the globe.

We have come a long way from the early days of our new found Independance. Yet the glory of the India that was before the British Rule is what we seek.

Let us make it a reason worth our season here:

To no longer have a soul on our land who does not have enough to eat, wear or live.

To destroy the elements of communal disharmony.

To spread the wealth.

To feel proud of our heritage.

To see good triumph over evil.

To feel the brotherhood.

To believe in ourselves, our fellow Indians and in our country.

To remember the songs of our land.

To root for our nationhood.

To honour our heroes.

To know here is where we come from and it is where we’ll go.

Jai Hind!

    Happy happy independence day!!Vow, I love the song (this also has a tamil version and to hear it with the music in the mother tongue does not fail to bring tears!)

    🙂 I wasn’t aware of the Tamil version. Will look it up. The song expresses what I feel about India. 🙂
