Let My Country Wake-Up and Bloom

Let My Country Wake up and Bloom
On the Independence Day of India                        For 15th AUGUST 2010

O Almighty God,
I pray to you today on the auspicious occasion,
Of our country’s Independence Day.

Let my country wake-up and bloom, 
Under the sky of freedom and prosperity,
While thinking, not only for the welfare of India,
But also for the well being of the entire world.

Let us show the world, that we not only believe,
In the theory of ‘The whole world is a family’
But we really care for it.

Make us more strong and benevolent,
Hard working, but generous,
Peace loving but strong enough to destroy those,
Who are trying to take the benefit of non-violence.
And are planning to spoil the peace of earth.

Give strength to my people to elect only those,
Who can show us a path of progress and humanity,
But not through the jungles of corruptions and absurdity.

Bless our people to elect only those,
Who are sincere and honest, brave and courageous?
Who may make my country a strong nation,
Give us strength to elect only those, who may
Save the Nature of this earth and may try 
To make, the entire world a beautiful place, 
To live with peace and love. 


Kanpur India  14th August 2010
