I already have an About me page. So I decided to create a post on my country. Below is a poem I wrote that describes the unique geography, history and culture of India.
The Country Heart
India, my homeland, my motherland,
Her feet tread on the sea waves and sand,
Crowned with the Himalayan mountains,
Expands from Gujarat coasts to the Eastern rains.
From Kashmir to Indira point.
She, the great Mother to the great warriors, Kings and queens,
History tells the tale of holy monuments and ancient ruins,
Great rulers from great king Ashoka and Chandragupta,
To the Mughals, the British and the Maratha.
Great wars and struggles, the great Freedom Struggle
Rich in history, holy in culture,
Great many religions and tribes, boundaries are a blur.
Diversity is her name and fame.
Diwali, Holi, Id, Christmas,…,all’s the same
‘Unity in Diversity’, that’s pride in our country’s Heart.
