Let us be the golden bird
Let us rip the darkness
Let us step in shine
Let us depart the night and
Let us bring new dawn.
Let us illuminate every house
Let us remove despair
Let us communicate hopes
and wipes out everyone’s tears.
Let us remove discrimination
Let us shoot the starvation
Let us cut the trap of corruption
Let us kill the superstitions.
Let us rise above the races
Let us love all human faces
Let us defeat the terrorism
Let us embrace the humanism.
Let us bring happiness to each face
Educate the entire human race
Let us cut the snare of unemployment
Fill every heart with encouragement.
Let us live in harmony with nature
Let us save trees and creatures
Let us bring progress in agriculture
and foster the best in our culture.
Let us put all differences aside
United we stay in time of strife
Let us bring quality in our life
In every field win glory and pride
Let us fly like fearless bird
Let us shine in the whole world
Let us be that golden bird
by which we were known in the world.

There was a time when India was considered a ‘golden bird’ because of its vast natural resources, rich cultural heritage and vast knowledge in every aspect of life. India gave to the world great saints, scholars, thinkers, artists and soldiers. But today the overall picture of our country is very depressing. Working of democracy is not satisfactory. Poverty, unemployment, corruption, terrorism, racism, inflation etc are the major problems of our country. Let us make India a developed country with no negative system, ideas or beliefs.
How is this poem on India of my dreams ?
