Emotions that only the heart can express as pure love and devotion for the mother land comes alive;
Our choked voices finds expression as we sing Vande Mataram and the national anthem reverberates through the soul;
Together, we carved an identity in our heart and pride in being called an Indian;
Despite our squabble that goes violent at times as we fight for a better country, we are united and feel proud of our cultural identity and the country;
Angry patriots we are!
We vent out in the form of protest, shouting on social network sites when we see injustice meted out to the poor and where women rights are not respected;
It makes us angry when an innocent girl is burnt alive and when 30 vultures pounce on a defenseless girl who made the crime of loving someone;
We shout and say no to corruption, racial discrimination and violation of human rights;
We fight with our motherland because we care for her,
After all, it’s our country;
We shall vanquish our defeats and over power elements that shall deter our progress as a nation;
Yet! We celebrate victory when our national team wins a cricket match;
We unite despite our differences to celebrate our sense of belonging as a nation;
We may be far away from the motherland yet we celebrate our freedom and express love for a country that we rightfully call ours;
India resides in our blood as its children,
We cannot disintegrate our soul from the body;
We celebrate our victory as a nation and express pride that we walked the land we call India
Proud to be Indian.
Happy Republic Day.
