When
I was thinking about the next word for the A to Z Blog Challenge which starts
with a big “I”.  My thoughts went on and on and on with many words, but suddenly
it stopped at the word “INDIA” Yes, my own nation topped the list.  A beautiful country in the universe, we call it MOTHER INDIA. 

My
memories went back to my childhood days.  In school we start our days with
the following pledge which I still remember and sometimes whisper too.
Yes, it still lingers in our minds and on our lips.
Here
is the pledge we make every day in the morning along with the morning
prayer.  Yes we start our school day with this pledge.  It still continues in all the Indian schools.

 The
Pledge
 
India
is my country

All Indians are my
Brothers and Sisters

I love my country
And I shall always
strive to be

a loyal and worthy
citizen of it.

To my country and
my people

I pledge my
devotion

May God grant her
peace and prosperity. 
 
But Alas! 
Today,
When I look around,  this concept is totally changed
and
many look at each other in a different outlook.
The
golden old days are gone forever!
politics
and politicians polluted the system
and
they created a kind of enmity
within
ourselves to
fatten
their vote banks/pockets. 
Alas!!! 
The
journey goes on!!!


Anyways  here
is….

  1. You wisely attributed India.
    I love my country.
    Whatever it be, it’s our responsibility to make it a perfect place to live.
    This land has given us a lot and now it’s our turn to pay back.
    We can’t return everything our motherland did favour to us many times,
    however, our small steps can also make huge differences. 🙂

    Thanks

  2. This is an amazing post!

    The facts mentioned in this post are really new to me!

    Indeed I am surprised to note the fact that “About one out of every six people in the world lives in India.” This is really an amazing information!

    Oh that is true that our country is holding the position as second largest populated country in the world!
    What a Population explosion! Though in such a populated country, most of the Indians live in Unity! Though there are few isolated exceptions to this, by and large our country’s unity in diversity is famous and adorable too!

    Though there are few people among us who create trouble in the country, we can well say that our country is a peace loving nation.

    I like the way you presented the present situation or truth about our nation along with its amazing facts!

    Let our unity be famous among nations!

    Let others find some role models among us!

    May our country and country men live in peace and unity

    Thanks for the great share PV

    Have a great day 🙂

  3. Hi Philip ,
    I am not Indian born but I love India as well and have many beautiful friends there.
    India is truly a great Nation and recognized by all the great thinkers of this world.

    Will Durant, American historian said: “India was the motherland of our race, and Sanskrit the mother of Europe’s languages: she was the mother of our philosophy; mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics; mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways”

    “India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.” -Mark Twain

    “We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made”. -Albert Einstein

    “If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.”-Romain Rolland, French scholar
    And there are much more who praise India.
    Jai Hind ,Jai Bharat ,Vande Mataram

  5. What a share Philip! Thank you so much for creating such a post about our motherland.

    The mentality of people have definitely changed. We do not enchant the pledge like we used to. But we (atleast some) definitely realize that it is our responsibility to make the things better. The good thing is our kids are also being up-brought with the similar values. And we can only be hopeful about the days to come.

    1. Hi Manidipa,
      What a joy to hear from you again.
      Thank you for the value added comment.
      Yes, how nice it would have been if we all realize the importance of these things, as you said it is really nice that our children too are brought up in that concept, we do not know about the future generation. Let us hope for the best.
      Thank again Manidipa for your feedback
      May you have a great week ahead.

  6. Hi Brother Phil,

    First of all sorry for being here at this page very late. Glad and thank you very much that you included one of my posts about India as a link in this post. Like you mentioned, I still remember the school days starting with the pledge “India is our country. All Indians are our brothers and sisters” and the national anthem “Janaganamana” as if it was few weeks before.

    Thanks for sharing this informative as well a nostalgic post (for me).

    Keep sharing.

    Have a great time blogging.

    Best regards.

  7. No words for this post. Well you have covered almost all the important parts of India in one post. And indeed India is a great country.

    Loved it!

  8. Thanks for sharing us lots of beautiful pictures of Kerala the God’s own country.

    During these few years blogging and connecting with many Indie bloggers, I fund many beautiful places in India.

    Sometime I want to be in India for some traveling, but it might just in plan. I’m a less traveler, I travel less even in my country.

    You know? My dream is, I want to travel in different places around the globe. I don’t know, but I hope my blogging can help me to do so in next 5 or 10 when I become old. LOL

    Thanks for sharing…
