Song of Youth

Today, India celebrates its sixtieth Year of Independence. At this juncture, I would wish to publish here an E-mail that I sent to a few friends of mine on this day in 2003. I wish, my dear readers spare some time to go through this note.

Hi All,

In the Epilogue of the book "Ignited Minds," Dr. A P J Kalam writes:
"I have conveyed the message overleaf (appended below) to nearly 40,000 school children in Chennai, Porbandar, Rajkot, Jamshedpur, Bhubanewsar, Dindigul, Abu Road, Anand, Udaipur and many other places so far. I hope to reach 100,000 young minds before August 2003. When thousands recite this, I see the developed India."

Song of 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


- Dr A P J Kalam.

Celebrate the Independence Day.

-R Rajesh
