India that is Bharath my homeland became free nation
After sacrifices of millions under the leadership
Of Mahatma Gandhi -big and small, rich and poor, well read
And unread- with the sole goal of FREEDOM from the British!
Babu Rajendra Prasad born on third December,
Hundred and Thirty three years ago in Bihar
A teacher and lawyer plunged into freedom struggle
Till achieved – served as Minister till the year Fifty!

Two full- a Congress leader yet- proved non partison
In office and of great advisor to the Government
On education in India a subject dear to his heart!
Our holy Motherland-India that is Bharath
With its tradition and culture glorious –behemoth
Fought unitedly against the foreign yoke cruel
Under the leadership of Mahatma – the noble!

Gave our great constitution to ourselves fine
Sacred constitution drafted by the eminent
Not to be meddled with by politicians present!
Seeks to provide all citizens JUSTICE and LIBERTY,
EQUALITY and FRATERNITY sure for eternity
It is the sacred duty of the patriotic
People to follow and protect our Constitution
India that is my Bharath is called Motherland
We revere HER as BHARATHA MATHA- sacred Mother
Who takes care of all her children East and West, North and South
Every day never wanting to see them suffer!
Alas, what a pity not a day passess sans
A report on atrocities and violence
Against women-child, or in teens, adult or old
By parents, teachers and others- young and old
In offices and outside, in the moving vehicles
In gardens and homes, parks and schools= be condemned.
“ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN DAY”
Is today. Ax Gandhiji said-that day is the independence day
“When women in India is able to walk alone
Safe in the midnight “. When are we to see that golden day?
Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in deep thinking .
Born to guide the destiny of my Motherland-
India that is Bharath-great and holy land
Born as a noble daughter to a noble father
On nineteenth November nineteen Seventeen!
At a critical juncture in Indian history
Stood like a rock and brought discipline among all
While many failed, she made the nation straight and tall
Grateful people remember her services – not small!
National Integration Day is today- her birth day
Need of the day as fissiparous characters
Raise their heads to make the honest people down theirs
Patriotic people should raise themselves above all!
India that is Bharath and its ‘sanathana dharma’ knows no age
Evolution it was: became fragments several over years –in cage
Kingdoms, Chiefdoms, Chieftains, wars and counter wars-my God
United India became a reality with Freedom at midnight!
It was for Vallabhai Patel first Deputy Prime Minister
Iron man to bring all the States of different hue and colors
Into one Union of Indian States with vision and a mission
Succeeded –States new were carved on the basis of languages!
On this day in nineteen fifty six were born Tamilnadu, Andhra,
And Karnataka were born to the linguistic satisfaction of all
Of course there is a free movement of all Indians –language not a bar
I am Indian first and last- though I speak languages different-at par!
Many in thousands were in the forefront on the journey
To Indian Freedom which indeed was not sweet honey
But quite arduous- tumultuous journey -with Gandhi
One was great Sardar Vallabhai Patel born on this day!
First Deputy Prime Minister of India he was
With Nehru as Prime Minister. Patel a Barrister
Statesman, a leader of Indian National Congress-

After his leading role in the journey to our freedom
Guided its integration into a united and
Independent India -was called Sardar-the Chief
Let us pay our respects to him on this day -atleast in brief!

Gave birth to personalities great-in East and West
South and North, Central all over never to be forgotten
For their selfless service to the homeland-by the grateful!
In the down South was born an astute leader- admired by all
PASUMPON MUTHURAMALINGA DEVAR- disciple of Nethaji- tall
Refused to believe he was dead and gone till Devar lived
That was his belief and confidence in his LEADER-loved!
An honest politician common in those days-Devar
Was faithful to the Party, the People and Leader
Congress and Forward Block as Subhash Chandra Bose was
Let us pay our respects to Devar on this Day-his birth day!
