Sonnet: Our Great Land- Bharath
My Mother India is a great nation
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Of peoples, states, creeds, languages galore;
Our diversity is our main bastion;
Our Democracy our neighbors’ eye-sore!
We inherit a great culture so old,
Rich traditions and sacred heritage;
Our minds and hearts are something more than gold;
The land is home to scholars, saints and sage.
Non-violence is our guiding principle;
We want to live in amity with all;
Our country is a great world-example!
We’ll fend our frontiers but will never fall.
Let not our foes us underestimate;
Our Will is strong which none can decimate.
