Happy Republic day 2014

Posted by Shreyans Jain Sunday, 26 January 2014 0 comments


From 26 January 1950, when India was declared a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic to 26 January 2014, we have covered a long time span. In these 64 odd years, we as a nation have witnessed myriad bitter-sweet moments and achieved various milestones. From fighting various wars across the border to being a constant companion to various peace measures, India has reflected a gamut of emotions. We continue to be the largest democracy and one of the fastest growing economies of the world. Reflecting at our achievements in the field of science and technology, sports, medicine, entertainment, business and entrepreneurship et cetera gives us immense pleasure and a great sense of pride on being a citizen of such a powerful nation. At this juncture, the destiny is exhorting us to embark on the path that will lead us to our ultimate destination – where there is no discrimination, no poverty, no crime and no hatred, a place where every individual is empowered and is a part of the development process. It is incumbent on each one of us as a citizen of this nation to struggle till our last breath for the development and prosperity of our motherland. Let us make a solemn resolution to douse the flames of alienation and hatred that have repeatedly been fanned by various hostile forces that intend to unleash terror and balkanise this country. In this era of modernisation, it is equally important for us to not to forget our moral values and undermine our diverse cultural heritage. We ought to uphold and preserve our pristine values and strengthen our social fabric. We must also ensure that our brethren are able to accompany us in this journey and our virtues overpower our vices. Let us promise ourselves to protect the sanctity of the soil of this auspicious land and join our hands together with due respect to the Almighty to bless us with strength and courage to come out triumphant in all our endeavours.


Is there ought you need that my hands withhold,
Rich gifts of raiment or grain or gold?
Lo ! I have flung to the East and the West
Priceless treasures torn from my breast,
And yielded the sons of my stricken womb
To the drum-beats of the duty, the sabers of doom.
Gathered like pearls in their alien graves
Silent they sleep by the Persian waves,
Scattered like shells on Egyptian sands,
They lie with pale brows and brave, broken hands,
they are strewn like blossoms mown down by chance
On the blood-brown meadows of Flanders and France.
Can ye measure the grief of the tears I weep
Or compass the woe of the watch I keep?
Or the pride that thrills thro' my heart's despair
And the hope that comforts the anguish of prayer?
And the far sad glorious vision I see
Of the torn red banners of victory?
when the terror and the tumult of hate shall cease
And life be refashioned on anvils of peace,
And your love shall offer memorial thanks
To the comrades who fought on the dauntless ranks,
And you honour the deeds of the dauntless ones,
Remember the blood of my martyred sons!

The Gift of India
- Sarojini Naidu


I wish all my dear countrymen a very Happy Republic Day.
