With Himalayas in the north

Indian Ocean in the south

Arabian Sea in the west

Bay of Bengal in the east.

I love my nation

With developed culture

And beautiful sculpture

The people have no rest

To do their work best.

I love my nation

They give us rice in ration

They dress in latest fashion

They do many inventions

Which are about fiction.

I love my nation

With a number of hill station

Which are God’s creation

It gives us protection

And save us from tension.

3. My India

Our’s is a land of sages,

Known for bravery for ages.

None can with it compete,

Its culture none can beat.

Whatever caste or religion,

All live here in unison.

With rivers, sweet fountains,

it’s a land of high mountains.

Its green forests are pretty,

And are the source of prosperity.

Let’s for it work hard,

For its safety, be on guard.

– by APJ Abdul Kalam

4. Vande Mataram

Mother, I bow to thee! 

Rich with thy hurrying streams, 

bright with orchard gleams, 

Cool with thy winds of delight, 

Dark fields waving Mother of might, 

Mother free. 

Glory of moonlight dreams, 

Over thy branches and lordly streams, 

Clad in thy blossoming trees, 

Mother, giver of ease 

Laughing low and sweet! 

Mother I kiss thy feet, 

Speaker sweet and low! 

Mother, to thee I bow. 

– by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee

5. 15th August

Whenever the children see

There’s a flag in hands wee.

Moving all in a row

pretty discipline do they show

Patriotic at the heart

Move on they very fast

White, Saffran and green

A lot do the colours mean

Be dynamic, tells the wheel

For thy nation,

proud feel

May our flag fly aloft

For it’s valuable most.

6. Gitanjali 35

"Where the mind is without fear

and the head is held high;

Where knowledge is free;

Where the world has not been

broken up into fragments by

narrow domestic walls;

Where words come out from

the depth of truth;

Where tireless striving stretches

its arms towards perfection;

Where the clear stream of reason

has not lost its way into the dreary

desert sand of dead habit;

Where the mind is lead forward by thee

into ever-widening thought and action-

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father,

let my country awake."

– by Rabindranath Tagore
