…LET’S CELEBRATE THE INDEPENDENCE…


The most important day in Indian history, the day of which every Indians are proud of is 15th August i.e Independence day. It was on this auspicious day in 1947 that India got freedom from British regime which lasted for almost 250 years. This day  finally came after massive protests for several years, so many sacrifices by martyrs. The struggle for independence was a deadly and bloody battle in which so many people sacrificed their lives for the sake of country.  It is the most important national festival of our country. The other being the Republic day which is celebrated on 26th Januray, the day when Constitution of India was adopted in 1950.

This year marks the 68th Independence day. In these 68 years there have been many improvements and achievements and the journey continues and I hope it will continue with more pace.  A country grows and achieves only when its citizens contribute to its development. So it is our duty too to give something to our motherland whom we worship. That contribution can be anything, anything that you think can make a change, can benefit the society. If each of us contribute something then as a whole it leads to massive change, big achievement.

This day is celebrated across the country. The Prime Minister hoists the national flag at Red Fort(Lal Quila) in New Delhi and addresses the nation. Everyone is having a lot of hope from the current Prime Minister i.e Narendra Modi and we hope that India will reach to new heights. But for this to achieve one has to be a part of the change too. 🙂 The feeling of being Indian is at its peak on this day. People from every background celebrate this festival the way they can and feel proud of being an Indian.

There are many movies which have been made with patriotic flavour. Bollywood have always been very generous in showing as well as growing the feeling of patriotism. The patriotic songs of golden era of Bollywood is truly a gem. So on this holy day I would like to share one of the song which has become immortal. This song is also known as “India’s second National Anthem”. Yes I am talking about “Mere desh ki dharti” from the movie,    Upkar     directed    by Manoj Kumar. Every national festival is incomplete without this song.    Sung by Mahendra Kapoor, written by Gulshan Bawra and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, this song is still refreshing after 48 years from its release in 1967.

 

So wishing you all a very happy Independence day. Lets enjoy, rejoice and refresh ourself for a better tomorrow, not for ourselves but for our country. Being an Indian is a proud feeling and  it is our duty too to preserve our culture and heritage. We have to carry forward the legacy which have been left behind. When the citizens steps ahead, nation moves forward.     Remember whatever we do, it should be a service to our nation, our motherland as if we would not take care of our mother then who will do it ???

So, let’s celebrate the Independence… Happy Independence day to all of you… 🙂

अपना हिन्दुस्तान |


As Independence day is coming closer i.e on 15th August. So here is my first take on a poem which is of patriotic theme. I hope it will be liked by you all… 🙂 Happy Independence day… 🙂

ये धरती है बहुत पावन |
यहाँ का हर रंग है मन भावन  |
जिसके सिर पे हिमालय का है ताज |
जो है हम सबका सरटाज़ |
शान से सदियों पे जिस पर हमे है गर्व |
हर रोज़ होता हैं यहाँ कोई पर्व |
है जिसका हमें अभिमान |
कोई और नहीं …
वो है अपना हिन्दुस्तान |

खून से सींचा है जिसे शहीदों ने |
जिसके लिए सर कटा दिया वीरों ने |
ये माटी है बहुत ही अनमोल |
जो बोलती है हमेशा मीठे बोल |
गोद मे संजोया है जिसने हमे |
माँ की तरह पाला है जिसने हमे |
होता है जिसपे हमें गुमान |
कोई और नहीं …
वो है अपना हिन्दुस्तान |

देश है एक पर भाषा अनेक |
जहाँ के लोग हैं सॉफ और नेक |
है कौन जो इस से प्यार नहीं करेगा |
ढूँदने पर भी ब्रह्मांड में ऐसा देश नहीं मिलेगा |
इसकी वातावरण मे एक अनोखी खुशबू है |
जो कहीं और मिलती नहीं है |
है जहाँ पर सबका मान और सम्मान |
कोई और नहीं …
वो है अपना हिन्दुस्तान |

जिसने किया है संसार पर अनेकों उपकार |
क्यूँ न करे हम उस धरती से प्यार |
यही वो जगह है जहाँ स्वर्ग है बस्ता |
हर दिल मे हिन्दुस्तान है रहता |
इसकी तारीफ कोई लिख नहीं पाएगा |
लिखने भी लगे तो स्याही कम पर जाएगा |
जिसके हर एक कन मे अनोखी ताक़त है |
वो तो अपना भारत है |
नहीं होता है जहाँ किसी का अपमान |
कोई और नहीं …
वो तो है सिर्फ़ अपना हिन्दुस्तान |
अपना हिन्दुस्तान …
