In a land of spices and colorful attire,
With a rich history that’ll never expire,
There once lived a group of freedom fighters bold,
Whose stories are occasionally told.
Of eastern lands where sun does rise
Proud India stands, a nation of the wise
From mountains high to the oceans wide
It boasts of beauty and spirit deep inside
Gandhi with words softer than breeze
Led the charge, showed the world India’s peace
Lal-Bal-Pal with thundering demands
Fired up a nation with patriotic hands
Subash with armies and revolution
Struggled for freedom with dedication
Bhagat Singh in his youthful glory
Exposed the British and their bloody story
The Iron Lady of British Raj
Jhansi Ki Rani stood for liberty and fight back
Each one an inspiration, each one a star
They gave their all, no matter how far.
India became a sovereign state.
And each year, this date, we celebrate.
Salute to the heroes, the undying flame
For our freedom, their sacrifice will remain.
India, a tapestry of stories wide,
Freedom’s fighters, side by side.
Their legacy lives, forever strong,
In the heart of a nation, where they belong.
