A sacred land inhabited by a staggering billion who live in peace and harmony,
Though this fabric of brotherhood is at times tainted by blood and gore of communal acrimony;
A place where blazing temple lights, lilting hymns from mosques and toll of church bells heralds the beginning of every day;
This enviable unity amidst diversity is the unfailing glue preserving our collective identity today
This is the story of a nation where values, ethics and tolerance are its most visible insignia
Welcome to my adorable, beloved and tolerant India.
Female infanticide, human trafficking and blaring illiteracy, in this nation might rule the roost
But it is only a matter of time before the power of education caresses our people, providing the intellectual boost;
Corruptions and scams might be the undisputed theme of the day;
The 500-million youth of the soil would rise above their maturity and reign in this moral decay
This is the story of a nation whose determination, strong-will and perseverance are its most visible insignia
Welcome to my adorable, beloved and progressive India
The ills of poverty, superstition and cradle marriages are but mere passing clouds
The surging development will eradicate the evils by cloaking it with a healing shroud;
Land mines, naxalites and infiltration will be relegated to being nightmares of the past
As a new and bright tomorrow is sculpted, in which peace, prosperity and pageantry up to eternity will last
This is the story of a nation whose intellectual resources, governance and dedication are its most visible insignia
Welcome to my adorable, beloved and vibrant India.
Water disputes, border harangues and lack of infrastructure would, fade away without a trace into infinite oblivion
As rivers would be linked, roads connected and rails networked to form an unbelievable union;
As the doors to investment are thrown wide open and the draconian economic procedures eradicated and deregulated;
The inflows into the country which were a mere trickle now cascade and flow and are seemingly unabated
This is the story of a nation whose programmes, people and growth are its most visible insignia
Welcome to my adorable, beloved and resurgent India.
The much-deplored status of sports in the country will soon be replaced by a sense of exuberance and ecstasy
For a multitude of athletes, sportsmen and women are ready to explode in a show of unbelievable sporting potency;
Entrepreneurs and business magnates from the nation are but the cynosure of all eyes in the corporate domain;
Their unparalleled thoughts, innovations and inclinations are the business world’s greatest gain
This is the story of a nation whose fortitude, belief and confidence are its most visible insignia
Welcome to my adorable, beloved and dynamic India.
As time and space are conquered thereby taking Science and spirituality to a new horizon
Giving credence and credibility to every Indian’s dream of envisioning an empowered nation;
Ambition, aspirations and hopes are all but the wings of this nations surging growth plane;
The efforts of a billion sincere and patriotic mass never ever goes to vain
This is the story of a nation whose intellect, knowledge and forethought are its most visible insignia
Welcome to my adorable, beloved and mighty India.
As the magnificent tri-colour unfurls in 2020 in a resplendent spectacle and undiminished glory
The nation would have completed sculpting the world’s greatest ever-romantic story;
As the hearts of a billion Indians swell with pride and the air is filled with the chords of Tagore’s immortal anthem;
Tears of unabashed joy fill my eyes, as a wonderful story I try to recollect and fathom;
The world at large would have experienced the story of a nation whose hopes, dreams and vision are its most visible insignia
Welcome to my adorable, beloved and BEAUTIFUL INDIA.
