A nation with 1.3billion of us
That do have traffics, noises and many unnecessary fuss.
It’s home of 1.3 billion individual..
And for every individual, it is the most valuable.
Not just ‘cos it’s OUR nation
But also because the nation is indeed special :
The one with the longest constitution,
The one bearing the flag of largest republic across all Nations.
The one with world’s largest democracy.
The one with the widest diversity.
The one that elects leader by votes of a professor as well as one who isn’t even educated methodically.
The country that sets a high bar,
That says, what matters is not from where but WHAT YOU ARE
It’s not your religion that’ll rule, it’s not your ethnicity that’ll rule
It’s the entirely deserving you who’ll Serve the nation NOT RULE !
Oh, I can’t deny, here some evils fight on the name of religion,
Some deprive on the basis of casteism.
They’re just the bugs which tries to pollute the peace and unity.
They CAN’T BE THE FLAG BEARER OF ANY RELIGION OR COMMUNITY.
Unity in diversity? Then have a look!
It’s the country that had a Sikh Prime Minister when it’s president was a Muslim man
and together served a nation comprising of 79.8% of Hindu human
It’s a nation where a Hindu child visits Muslim Friend’s house to have eid’s biryani
And the Muslim child enjoys Holi with that same Hindu family.
On Christmas, you can just witness the same faces Decorating their houses and Christmas tree.
India’s democracy inspires even in diversity
As again, it’s not your background but what matters is your ability..
Because, a person who was an ordinary tea seller once, is now the Prime Minister of the country!
Just because of his dedication and his ability.
Because, the first union minister of law and justice the nation had, comes from a minority community of dalit.
And he’s the one who’s also, the father of our constitution.. yes, read again and remember it.
A nation where unofficially 700 language and dialects are spoken
Where no language is a national language just because no one should feel broken.
A nation where every Minister’s having a different lingual background
But works as a whole for the country, as that’s the right way how the instrument called democracy should sound
Yes India lag in many things
it does need a lot of improvements
But hey! Who’s absolute perfect?
Just how we can’t deny the lags, similarly nobody can even deny the above stated facts!
The facts that we carry with pride
The unity that’s helping us to take all tough ride.
The fact that our democracy’s special even after having bits of flaws..
The fact that we are one even after many tried to break it just by moving their jaws.
Yes we are “one”, I’m one of the “we”
Who says democracy with diversity we posses is special and being Indian is what I am proud to be.
Thus I won’t hesitate and say my word,
Indian democracy is A role model of unity and diversity for the world.
PS. Wishing all Indians and indian origins out there a very happy 73rd republic day ❤️
