We escaped the belly of the beast. We weathered bludgeonings from across the seas. we fought them with peace. Together we wrote our own destiny, we spelled out words of justice and equality. We woke to self rule and sovereignty, pledging to wipe tears from all eyes. On an unfinished pursuit of our ideals, our divided wounds continue to heal. And heal shall they, for we allow them to with our constitution. A collection of our most-driven convictions. We have witnessed wars and decades pass, the technology grow and freedom last. Tis nation of the Himalayas and the Malwa. From the deserts of the west to the deltas of the east, Liberty has been enshrined & secularism promised in our revered book. It is belongs to all of us, in its mighty self and binding laws. We, the people have rights that we exercise and duties we fulfill. We are not powerless, we have the power - we are the nation.
