Today, is the 69th year of Indian independence and I can’t keep from stating how privileged I feel to be free. Free as a human being, an individual, a soul.
The Indian freedom struggle was not quite an easy one
Yet our fighters held the tricolor high and independence they won.
They won it for us, for this nation to live free
For the birds to fly high over the farthest sea.
Freedom is a state of mind
A state of soul very kind.
The love for liberty is something really sublime
The best view comes after the hardest climb.
And we did it even if it took long
We did it like the warriors, mighty and strong.
To fly like birds high in the sky
Because they said “Do Or Die”.
Today is the day, when I take a pledge
To spread the pride and cheer of my freedom until the edge.
To live my life as a proud responsible for my country
And give whatever I can to see it high and free.
To see happiness in the eyes of the people
To spread love and respect to the hearts of the people.
