MARTYRS DAY POEM FOR INDIA
Every nation observes martyrs day annually
Our beloved country India also observes martyrs day
For the great souls and the great soldiers of the nation
Who fought for the freedom, pride, glory and welfare of our nation
Sacrificing one’s own life is the greatest sacrifice known to human being
For the welfare wellbeing of our nation.
The sovereignty of our nation is so dear to us
We salute the martyrdom of soldiers for this cause
Annually we observe Martyrs Day – Sahid Diwas
We observe martyrs day twice
One on 30th January to remember Mahatma Gandhi
The father of the nation
He guided us to freedom through non-violence a new ammunition
Alas! He was killed by our own man Nathuram Godse
But Mahatma Gandhi was the architect of the Indian Independence.
He is the father of our Nation.
The other Martyrs Day is observed on 23rd March of every year
We pay tribute to three extraordinary revolutionaries of India
Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar
They were hanged to death by the Britishers
They were the role model of the powerful youth power
That guided the millions to fight against the British Empire.
Our Nation has taken a better shape
We have established our nation as an important nation
Now we are the biggest democracy
With big amount of human resource
We have unity in diversity.
Let us all remember the great sacrifice of the martyrs
Let’s add strength and beauty to their hopes and aspirations
Together we all can do wonders!
It’s our belief and faith that gives the energy
The rich culture and tradition can help us a lot
Let us take guidance and rededicate ourselves
By remembering the martyrs of our nation
And get the energy and strength to build a great nation.
