Colors wrapped with love
crafted with care
magically sprinkled all over

the green valleys
snow cap mountains

a place of life
comforted with smiles
but pain seen all over

the tall buildings
tiny little huts

a land of culture
followed with respect
still alive even after ages

customs change
for every step you take

a country learning to walk
with technology and time
competing with world

Knowledge is divine
we believe with respect

amidst fear we live
with countries of terror
love we give across boundaries

we greet them with love
but least got in return

Brothers of my nation
salute with pride
our mother of religions

we live in harmony
while some try tearing us

Know the beauty
of love, of life
visit my country

a place full of love
always available for you

Celebrating life
in every aspect
we are happy

we are Indians
India is our motherland

Now, I understand why you had goosebumps reading my post. We both had similar ideas.. You wrote a beautiful poem which summarized our country pre and post independence while I wrote a long story which just captured the freedom struggle

All the best

There is no country more diverse than ours, yet so unified, so friendly and so welcoming. No matter where you are, be it any part of the world, west or east, you are first and last, an Indian. A beautiful expression of patriotic fervour, and a strong dedication to celebrating our identity. Beautifully penned. All the best.

A great take on the subject. I liked it a lot.

A very well composed and delicately knitted message-simple, eclectic, inspiring and hopeful.
And a most welcome change from the usual inclination towards Diwali alone!
