Indian Tiranga (tricolour)


First unfurled, was the Indian tricolor;
on Everest, the world's highest peak.
All the three colors are deliberated
to give some message and speak.

Dark saffron, white and Indian green,
the three colors of Indian national flag;
all in horizontal rectangular bars
top to bottom respectively placed.

Green band at bottom tells Indians,
grow with greenery and agriculture;
White band in middle of it, gives us
message of peace, truth and culture.

Saffron says, be brave and courageous,
don't hesitate to sacrifice if nation needs;
Wheel of twenty four spokes at center
tells, on path of progress always proceed.

Made of hand spun Indian cloth, Khadi,
at one hand symbolizes pride of nation;
Design and color on the other, say symbolically
what ought to do the great Indians.

On every Independence and republic days
Tiranga is unfurled widely in the country;
to remind the people; be nice, graceful,
peaceful, prosper and keep in mind your duty.
