गणतंत्र दिवस मुबारक हो

I would like to wish "Happy Republic Day" to everyone. On 26th January 1950 the constitution of India came into force and India became a truly Sovereign, Democratic and Republic. I was in Delhi a few years back on Republic Day. Though I could not attend the grand parade, the atmosphere made me feel so good. Kite Flying in Delhi adds a different flavor to the celebrations.
One of my friend, Praveen, sent me a self-composed Poem. It was very touching, so thought of putting it here.

My dear land,
I bow before you, for,
You have filled my stomach, for,
You have provided me shelter, for,
You have satisfied my thirst,
I will carry you in my heart,

Till thy last breath, for,
You carried me like a butterfly underneath a leaf.

My mother,
I will be one among your children who lived only for you.
Till my last breath I will protect you and be one among your children who died only for you.

Oh Mother! you are my lovely mother, for,
You wept so much for me, for,
You bare so much for me.

I have sowed you at the depth of my heart, for I can see you grow everyday,
I nourish you with good thoughts, for you blossom everyday.

Jai Hind.
