For long freedom fighters in thousands sacrificed all
Mahatmaji gave guidance and inspiration tall
All parts of the country contributed in great measure
Not a little of grudging and grumbling with pleasure!
From the South was born a soul noble known as V O C
On fifth of September eighteen seventy two-crazy
Disciple of Bal Gangadar Tilak—great leader
VOC known as Kappalottiya Thamizhan!
First to launch a shipping service – Tuticorin-Colombo
A member of the Indian National Congress
Later charged with sedition, sentenced life imprisonment
Barrister he was and his license was revoked with contempt!
In the middle with dark glasses and walking stick speaking to Nehruji is Rajaji.
India that is Bharath has given birth to stalwarts several
Who by their nobility and knowledge, dedication in total
And devotion have served the people and country enormously sure
The Nation to be ever proud of as their intentions was pure!
Under the great Father of the Nation, millions of people
Irrespective of caste and creed, language and religion with scruple
Won the war of independence-in a non violent manner
To the great delight of the world all over without any scanner!
One such great leader was Chakravarthi Rajagopalachari
From the far South Tamilnadu- acclaimed as Chanakya-
Governor General of India he was and guided the destiny
A superb scholar, speaker and writer whose birth day is tomorrow!
Holiest day in a year is tomorrow-GANDHI JAYANTHI DAY
Great Father of our sacred Motherland- India that is Bharath-Way
Ahead of many world countries in aspects several thanks to his vision
Whose unceasing efforts and unparalleled leadership guided with a mission!
The whole nation owes for eternity its gratitude and respect great.
Unfortunate that the murderer of that great soul is sought to be honored
With statues and books on the wretched; no redemption for the ungrateful;
On this day sacred and holy, let us resolve to uphold Gandhism-be redeemed!
Truth and non-violence when adopted as solution for all evils
Peace and harmony will rule the Society and throw away all ills.
Sure not theoretical or bookish but was demonstrated by him
Hail that great Mahatma- revered by the world around, our minds trim!

“National Maritime Day” is today, an important day
Happy and proud citizens of India we are to pay
Our heartful wishes to all connected with navigation
An ancient history we have for a celebration!
History going back to hoary past we have this day since
Nineteen sixty four- for centuries we have trade and commerce
Vast coast to be guarded from alien intrusion by us
Coast guards doing a great and serious service tremendous!
Shores seven thousand five hundred kilometers long, dozens
Of Ports –major and minor- all over Bharath amazing
Enabling ninety percent of trade International fine
Moving through ships quite large- a wonderful maritime gold mine!
Indian Republic sixty seven
Democratic fruits enjoyed to core
Democratic rights availed in full
Democratic values laid in lull!
Rights yielded place to a free license
License to indulge in deeds nonsense
Nonsense leading to atrocities
Beyond all due sensitivities!
Achievements galore, pride on one hand
Atrocities galore, ashamed we stand!
Corrupted mind, stained thoughts, evil deeds
Here and there, everywhere, pity indeed!
Our success and failure, good and bad
Who is responsible- sure I am!
R-day resolve- to all should be same!
“Let me mend my mind, tame my thought
With power of will, evils to be fought
Sure allow not my Motherland rot!
Dedicated to the welfare of our brethren
Saviors of the nation in its thick and thin
In extreme terrains and climate-dedicated souls!
For all their noble sacrifices for our sake
We owe it to them and their families our love
Love and regards by parting with an amount we can
As the young and old meet us with the Flag in return!
Nehruji said “a great way sure to indicate
Our deep appreciation is to contribute
To the Flag Day Fund- big and small becoming large
Millions of drops making a mighty ocean!
Our honor to the armed forces- the great soldiers
Airmen and sailors- protecting awful borders!
Civilian responsibility it is to show care for their families,
To display solidarity while their heads are away!
Throughout the country small flags and car flags in red,
Deep blue and light blue colors representing nice
The Services three – distributed to all
In return for donations –small and big yet tall!
National Law Day-India” today that we cannot forget
Our Constitution is supreme and those who presented
On this day in November forty nine a great day
Indeed that cannot be ignored a memorable day!
A society growing and going- we are never static
But none has right to interpret-misinterpret
And seek to amend the fundamentals ever sanctified
Society to be ever vigilant against the misdeeds!
Where the integrity of India that is Bharath
Is involved none to be allowed to trample
And the eternal vigilance is the price
The country to pay to be grateful to our founding fathers!
