My holy and great Motherland gave birth to several greats
To take care of hard won freedom and its democratic values
Great Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru as one such Prime Minister
King Maker Kamaraj great and selfless worker Chief Minister!
Humble worker of the Congress movement under Mahatmaji

In the South of my sacred homeland-India that is Bharath
Led the State and the Nation in a variety of noble ways!
The greatest Chief Minister Tamil Nadu privileged to have
The finest King Maker of India ever seen and had
His selfless service and sacrifices made him the noblest

Journey to Indian freedom was long and orduous
Sacrifices of millions brought freedom famous
One such was this day on thirteenth April nineteen nineteen
A black day in the Freedom Movement- but lead to freedom!
Nature of any invader is to keep under his control
The country and its people to the extent possible central
In view and never caring for the ways and means horrible
The British were human beings and their strategies terrible!
India’s long journey to freedom was awful and hazardous
The Invaders’ actions of repression was indeed atrocious
Many were met with the weapon of non violence-can’t forget
One was on this day in nineteen nineteen-Jallianwala Bhag.
Heinous Dyer and his troops fired indiscriminate on poor
Pilgrims for Baishaki festival-purely religious and social
Several hundreds wounded and a few hundreds died-atrocious
Gandhiji led a non-cooperation movement precious.
Sathyamurthi with Kamaraj
India that is Bharath-my holy Motherland has given
And seen births and deaths of veterans in fields several in
Politics and philosophy, Science and Technology great
To know and follow their footsteps essential to grow and a treat!
MARCH Twenty eighth today is a sad day- death anniversary
Of a soul great-mentor of late Kamaraj-Tamilnadu easily
The best CHIEF MINISTER one can think of-SATHYA MURTHY born on
Nineteenth August Eighteen Eighty Seven and died in Nineteen Forty Three!
A great and noble son born in Thirumayam in Tamilnadu
Involved in Indian Freedom Movement very deep and devoted
Independence Activist and leading Congress politician
We salute him on his death anniversary today in veneration!
A great poet and politician she was- Nightingale of India- nice
Born in a Bengali Hindu family this day in Eighteen Seventy Nine
In a family of leading poets and politicians- studied in Chennai
And at King’s College London, later at Girton College, Cambridge!
Worked with Mahatma Gandhi, Gokale and Annie Besant played great
Role in the long journey to freedom – Congress President she was
Imprisoned for her political activities – natural treat
Witnessed the birth of FREEDOM at MIDNIGHT- UP Governor she was!
We salute the great lady on this memorable day-her birth day
Several volumes of prose and verse to her credit- a treat
To lovers of literature- rightly named Nightingale of India
Her name indelible and her memories to last for decades!
The darkest day in the Indian history was this day
Thirtieth January nineteen Forty eight- a black day
The day a criminal shot to death Father of the Nation
The assassin lost mental balance-deserving admonition!
Condemn-able is the efforts of those who glorify Godse
And to publish his books and put up a temple for the criminal!
The life of a noble gem- Father of the Nation who by
Efforts great and through means non-violent- was eliminated!
On this day and the National Martyrs’ day, people patriotic
To take a pledge to follow the ideals – of Gandhiji
Peace, truth and nonviolence all disputes to be resolved
At all levels and at all times by all and sure solved!
With a great pride and pleasure I unfurled our respectful TRI COLOR on 26th January- on the Republic Day in our wonderful colony JEEVAN Bhima Nagar, Chennai.
As I was returning home the flag called me and engaged in a conversation when it outpoured its anguish and sadness. Here is given the gist:
Flag: Oh my great friend, do you know me?
Replied I: What do you mean just an hour back it was I who unfurled you!
Flag: Yes I know and remember for ever; after all you people think of me only twice a year!
In a sullen mood I kept quite.
Flag: I know you can not answer this question! Thank God I could breathe fresh air this day. I have to get back to the cupboard and come again to breathe the fresh air only after seven months!
I responded this time: I am sorry.
Flag: I wonder how many of you atleast remember me on other days?
Again I had no answer to provide.
Flag: Do you know atleast my history?
Me: Yes, I read it my school book 65 years ago.
Flag: I never asked did you read. I only asked you whether you know!
In silence I nodded my head to communicate that I don’t.
Flag: Some one told me that you wrote about me!
Said I: Yes on 15th August 2017 I wrote about you in my blog quoting Mahakavi Bharathiyar praising you in Tamil. I gave it in English also.
Flag: When was it?
Replied I: ON 15th August last year.
Flag: I know that is why I told you that you people remember me only twice a year!!
I had no defence.
Flag: In the rest of the days do you know how many among you make use of me in a rubbish manner?
I know many wrap it on their body and other materials at home or office to protect from dust!
Flag: I am happy in some Government offices they allow fresh air to me from morn till evening every working day!
Desparately I told: “Be happy with it”!
Flag: It is not my happiness; your duty it is as per your own rules framed by great men among you.
Asked I: DUTY! In which era you are in?
Flag: Do you know I represent your culture and tradition-prosperity and sacrifice, transperancy and peace?
Said I : yes, but…………………………….
Flag: What is that but……………………..Your guilty conscience pricks you –am I right?
Said I in a guilty voice: Yes and no! I don’t know whether today I have any conscience left with me at all!
FLAG emphatically said and began to flutter in the air majestically: Time has come to think and act as a Nation lest the efforts of the great freedom fighters will go waste and you will have no redemption. .
