The land of variety

of countless cultures

and glorious traditions

the land of joy and celebration

of generosity and warmth

is my land

The land of the Mahatma

of Lokmanya Tilak and Swami Vivekananda

of Bhagat Singh, Chatrapati Shivaji

and the wonderful Rani Laxmibai

is my land


The land of courage and valor

of dreams and desire

the land of resolution

and fierce revolution

the land of undying spirit

and galloping gallantry

is my land


The land of Spirituality and Yoga

of Bharatnatyam,Kathak, Kuchipudi

and Ayurveda

is my land


The land of Durga and Kali

of Holi and Diwali

of  Krishna, Ganesha and Shiva

of  the Christ, Buddha and Allah,

is my land


The land of contrasts

of oneness

in the diverseness

the land of creativity amid the chaos

is my land


The land of billions of people

the land of billions of thoughts

yet the land with one emotion

Happy 70th Indian Independence Day to all of you.

Jai Hind!
