National Prayer

President APJ Abdul Kalam

The grand Scene of birth of Independent India In that mid-night, the flag of the ruler of two centuries lowered; The tri-color Indian flag flaps in the Red Fort in the midst of National Anthem. The first vision of Independent India was dawned.

The rejoice everywhere, happiness all around, There was a tender cry: where is the father of the nation? The white clothed soul walking in the midst of sorrows and pain,Injected by hatred and ego, the result of communal violence.

The father of the nation, Mahatma, walking bare footed In the streets of Bengal for peace and harmony. With the strength of blessed soul of Mahatma I pray the Almighty: When will be the dawn of second vision?

God has created the human being with brain and thinking faculty. He has commanded His creation that the faculty be used with reasoning to reach his message. This is the mission of human life.

Oh Almighty, create thoughts in the minds of my people, And transform those thoughts into action. Embed the thought of Nation being bigger than The individual, in the minds of leaders and people.

Oh Almighty, bless my country a path of life with righteousness as righteousness gives the strength of character. Help all the leaders of my country to give strength And bless the nation with peace and prosperity. Give strength to all my religious leaders to bring 'Unity of Minds' among all our billion people.

Guide my people to develop an attitude to appreciate different ideologies and transform enmity among individuals, organisations and nations into friendliness and harmony. Oh God, bless my people to work with perseverance to transform the country into a peaceful and prosperous nation.

Oh Almighty, bless all my people to work and transform Our country from a developing into a developed nation. Let this second vision be born out of sweat of my people, And bless our youth to live in developed India.

National Prayer

(Song of Youth)

As a young citizen of India
Armed with technology 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 and economic power with value system.
I am one of the citizens of the 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.


I, the Youth of India do hereby solemnly pledge that I will dedicate myself to strengthen and maintain the integrity of my country and I will render all my efforts with full co-operation to present our country and I will render all my efforts with full co-operation to present our country as a Great India.

I affirm that I will not indulge in any act which will destroy the integrity of my country.

Further I pledge myself that I will make my living with harmony and goodwill whichever community, caste, religion, creed or social class I belong.

And do not devour your wealth among yourselves through falsehood, and offer it not as bribe to the authorities that you may knowingly devour a part of the wealth of other people with injustice. - Holy Quran
