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.
