Land Of My Birth – I Pledge To Thee…

When Mother India is celebrating yet another  Independence Day, let every citizen of this sacred Motherland remain pledged to her, showing allegience to Mother India with our life, love, passion and everlasting loyalty, echoes Sri Jullie Chaudhuri.

O Ancient Mother,
Indeed selfless are you like none other,
O Most Benevolent Benefactor of innumerably many,
You extend to all your tender touch,
As such,
You shouldn’t be lonely,
Yet why do I sense the presence,
Of melancholy,
Oh, so tangibly?
Is it something to do with me…?
Something that I have done, not done, left undone,
Or forgotten completely…?
Have I grabbed excessively,
Hoarded selfishly?
Have I looked the other way carelessly,
Uncaringly, Callously,
When called upon by any being who needed me genuinely…?
O Land of my birth,
To wipe your tears I should be,
Aware, alert, responsive,
And ever awake and conscious of my lifelong duty, 
O India, my beloved Country,
O Bharat Mata,
Today, I salute Thee,
O Land of my birth,
I pledge to Thee,
My Life, Love, Passion, Allegiance and Everlasting loyalty…

Jai Hind.
Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu.
Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu.
