Representational image.

As we are celebrating the 71st Republic Day, we as Indians could not have found a better way to celebrate it than by dreaming and once again reclaiming the very Idea of India. To sing, and learn by heart, the songs which embrace the beauty of diversity. To once again stand and recall the spirit with which our leaders identified their strategy against ‘Divide and Rule,’ and worked to unite us.

We, on this day, proudly celebrate and extend our heartfelt thanks to our forefathers who gifted us this Constitution.

We are determined to safeguard it by singing this hymn of peace and joy. This hymn should become the Mool Mantra (primary slogan) of every Indian, to safeguard this very beautiful legacy!

Peace and Joy

I am an Indian,

Equality is my Religion,

I sing the hymns of Peace and Nonviolence!

I am an Indian.

And,

I worship Justice!

Hymn of theNation 2020
