Independence Day Poems English 2017

Today is Independence Day
We are happy and gay
Today we remember great souls
Who sacrificed their lives for soil
Who fought for freedom
And attained martyrdom
It is time to cherish
The compassion and passion
For mother India
And march ahead for noble mission
To keep country safe and secure
Make our hearts pure
And for sure
And it’s time to understand
And steadily stand
Against the foreign forces
And internal disturbances
We are Indian first and last
No matter what is our caste and creed
Faith and breed
Service to nation comes first
Arise awake and stay steadfast
Be on the forefront and not behind
Once again say ‘Jai Hind’
– Peom Source


I Love My Motherland India Because:

Integrity of the nation is paramount
No one is above the laws of the land
Democracy: largest and strongest in the world exists
Industries and industriousness reinforce each other
A’ll are given equal opportunities for development
Sanctity: sacred rivers like Ganges, Brahmaputra, Cauvery etc flow

Security: scientists, sages, seers have had their birth
Indianness, indigenization are of prime value
Xians, Muslims, Sikhs, Parsees, Jains, and others live in amity
Traditions and cultural heritage are mostly preserved
Intellectual resource is an unfathomable wealth
Education has been revitalized through mass media of communication in a big way
Togetherness of peoples has led to unity and harmony
Health: for all is through PHCs,

Internet is revolutionizing mass-education, transactions and
Neutrality makes India a most-friendly nation
Defence includes offence and deterrence
English knowledge is a valuable asset for jobs abroad
Population is both a unique advantage as well as demerit
Economy is quite independent of global factors
Nuclear power is used for peaceful purposes mainly
Development of the individual and nation happens in right proportions
Equality of sexes, creeds and communities is constitutionally safe-guarded
Non-governmental organisations play a vital role in many spheres
Companies of multi-national origin vie with one another to do business in India
Emphasis is on love and brotherhood of nations and not war

Deterioration of social and moral values is not a problem as yet
Agriculture is the main-stay of most people
Yeoman service has been offered by India to most world bodies and in world affairs


Where The Mind is Without Fear – Rabindranath Tagore

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow
domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;

Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the
dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought
and action–
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.


Dr John Celes

My sleep got disturbed, thrice that day;
I could not sleep tho’ a holiday;
My mind was filled with thoughts unclear;
I got up in the morn, much earlier;
‘Twas India’s Independence Day!

Thunder, lightning filled the night’s Sky;
The day much overcast did fly;
The Rain was just a drizzle that day;
Wetted the ground of mud and clay;
‘Twas 15th of August, a rainy day.

The pea-birds howled and groaned that night;
The Rain made them shiver with fright;
Though ten, it looked like six in the morn;
The Sun behind the clouds had gone;
The Sky ground-glass remained that day.

The leaky tap-waters that fell,
Raised wavelets, ploppy-toned and swell;
Rain-drops on cables looked like pearls;
Dropped, formed again, enticing souls;
It looked it would rain long that day.

Rain-drops hanging beneath fir-twigs;
Glittered in the scarce light like figs;
The whole tree was aglow, alit;
A thing of beauty, don’t miss it!
The Sky looked like a barred-white board!

A frail, brown-skinned, bony human,
With sack on head, bent-back, he ran!
The Indian was agonizing!
Tho’ people keep sermonizing!
Fifty years after Independence!
What good was done for the common-man?


Wish a Happy Independence Day to all my Indian brothers and sisters
And they include all, from corporate honchos to factory labours.
Let’s work hard to make India a country of dream
And for that we all need to work as a team.
Don’t let anything to bring any disunity among us
Whether the issue is political, ethnical, lingual or religious.
Let there be no victim of any social or legal injustice
Let there be no room for any corruption and malpractice.
Let there be no poverty, which compels a mother to sell her baby
Let there be no hunger, that forces people into beggary.
Let there be no unemployment, that sinks the youths into frustration
Let’s ensure that no Indian child is denied the basic school education.
All these may sound to be utopian, but we must not feel shy
If we are honest in our endeavour, we may achieve that high.


Michael D Nalley

The tea went in the sea
It started with a Big Bang
Brave men longed to be free
long before the bell rang

The war took its toll
though battles were won
Liberty was the goal
of almost everyone

In order to form a perfect union
The preamble was written
as they offered a communion
before the soldiers were smitten

Ideals stood firm in the revolution,
some have been lost along the way,
as democracy is another evolution.
Nothing’s louder than Independence Day
