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.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
