Do you know?
The land of sages,
Known for bravery for ages,
Whatever caste or religion
All live in unison.

Do you know?
The beauty of its culture
Even the wall painting and sculpture
Its geographical base
Or her amazing grace.

Do you listen?
Its melodious music
You must heed, when you get a chance.

Do you know, who is she?
She is my mother India.

Do you see?
Its specialized Arts,
From Taj Mahal at Agra.
At India Gate in India’s Heart.
The wonderful beauty of Himalaya.
The Rajasthani Thar Desert.
The Clouds of Cherrapunji.
The Switzerland of India, Kashmir.
The Oceans that cool and give monsoon rains.

India is the land of great national leaders and genius.
More than hundred crores of population,
Living without any confusion.
The Gateway of India opens a way for love and affection.
The evolution of India through its history.
A wide variety of agriculture and culture.
This is the gift of God.

Do you know?
It is the richness of my great India.
It is beautiful in every respect.




The smooth sun rises in the east
Illimitable noise of crows and hens
A vertex of sublime sand.
Red-attired married women
Present their centres of their lives
They hang fire to enter the Great Temple.

Their genial eyes goggle,
Ready to tear the net of all obstacles
To reach their goal.

The spectacle dispelled all my doubts,
I could see my beautiful grandmother
In that crowd.

I want her wishes to be kept
She will be cremated here
And be a part of this native land.


  1. Title: MY VILLAGE

A silent zone of village area
People are busy with farming
Working in farmland with buffaloes.
Producing rice using oxen.
The beauty of my village
Lies in its huts
Aroma of muds
Water in wells
The green fields
Fish of rivers
Dairy products of cows
Dung of cattles
Alarm at dawn
By rooster crowing
Arrival of dusk
By return of cowherds.
