Song Of Youth (…And For The Youth!)
Me and My Nation
India As a young citizen of India, armed with technology, knowledge and love for my nation,
I realize, small aim is a crime.
I will work and sweat for a great vision,
the vision of transforming India into a developed nation powered by economic strength with value system.
I am one of the citizens of a billion, only the vision will ignite the billion souls.
It has entered into me,
the ignited soul compared to any resource,
is the most powerful resource on the earth,
above the earth and under the earth.
I will keep the lamp of knowledge burning to achieve the vision-Developed India.
The above poem was written by our dear former President, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. This poem is called as ‘The Song Of Youth’… I strongly believe this poem should be placed in every household, school, college and university in India. Let this become a national oath. We, the youth, are the future generation…the fate of our country lies in our hands… Let us all understand the message of this poem….this poem is an inspiration, a motivation and a dream.
So, let us all join our hands together and make efforts….for a Developed India!
