India, the nation of pride;
one can barely imagine,
it was that wide.
Different shades you find,
Wherever you take your sight.
Golden bird it was known ;
innumerable hearts it has won.
with history of no invasion;
although World’s third largest army,
belong to this nation.
Oldest of all civilization;
from different culture and tradition:
mixed society lives in this nation.
India gave zero to pie;
Lunar and Solar eclipse in the sky.
India, mother of scholars and saints;
Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism flow through it’s veins.
Where Kashi and Balaji receive,
more visitors than Vatican and Mecca combined;
most mosques in the world,
on this land of divine.
Today India, has 29 states;
with variety of cuisine and taste.
Costumes and colors ;
celebration of different festivals.
Father Gandhi, in everyone’s mind;
where Bhagat Singh is still alive,
India, the nation of pride.
