My Country :
The land of Shiva and Krishna, the dream of the Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi, the nursery of temple and mosques is inside my country. She is first and foremost in my thoughts. I love India, my motherland.
India, the biggest democracy and one of the oldest civilsations of the world is the second most populous country into the world, after chain. Indians are courteous people. My country has produced warrior like Puru, Ran Pratap and Shivaji and leasers like Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel and freedom fighters like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bagat Singh and Lala Lajpet Ray.
In the fields of literature and science my country has produced eminent person like Rabindranath Tagore, Premchand, Sara Chandra, C.V. Raman, Jagadish Chandra Bose and Dr Abdul Kalama. Such great names make me proud of my country.
My country is a land of villages and fields laden with corps. I am proud of her village’s from where the Indians civilization has blossomed forth. Most of the great leaders of our country came from the villages. Our fields are fed by the mighty rivers like the Ganges, Yamuna, Brahmaputra, Godavari, Narmada, Krishna and Kavery. The Gangetic Valley is the most fertile regions of our land.
The oceans that wash her coasts on three sides and the mighty Himalayas that stand on the north have given my country natural frontiers from sides. Again, the lure of the mountains has attracted many adventures to this land of rich culture.
Ours is a secular state. In her lap breathe the happy followers of the various religions of the world. We have a unique culture which has devolved through the centuries. There is much diversity among our people. We speak many languages, worship many gods and yet we have the same spirit, the spirit of India, running through all parts of our country binding us together. We have great unity in diversity.
My country, because of the many beautiful locations, is the craze of tourists. The Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri, The Qutb and The Red Fort are few for the many wonders which attract human curiosity. Kashmir has been described as a paradise on earth. My country, the country of mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes is a fit abode for the gods, Ooty, Niligiris and the temples of south India, as Kajuraho, Ajanta, and Ellora caves are the places we can boost of.
