India, my country :

The most unique of all nations;

is a land of worshippers,

worshipping his creations.

We respect every object

whether living or dead,

'Worship even the tinist of his creations'

in our Holy Books it is said.

So the COW is our 'MOTHER',

and TULSI is pious,

the EARTH is holy;

Worshipping them makes us joyous.

Even if we by mistake

trod on a book or paper

' Touch it to your forehead' , we are told,

If not then

we are showing 'disrespect'

the God's wrath we must behold.

How then have we forgotten

His most prized possession,

How can we then disrespect

His most beloved creation.

Isn't man God's greatest gift

which bejeweles this earth ?

Aren't we all really lucky

to have had this birth?

Let us show the same love and respect

which we show to the inanimate.

Let us 'LIVE AND LET LIVE'

and a peaceful world create.

Let us lay the path of humanity

on which everyone must trod,

because we must remember that :

SERVICE TO MAN IS SERVICE TO GOD.
