India - my beloved country - which produced the greats of modern times in the world - has a proud place in my droughts. The biggest democracy, the land of temples and one of the oldest civilisations of the world, the second most populous country in the world after China, my country has produced warriors like Rana Pratap and Shivaji; leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh and Lala Lajpat Rai. In literature and science it has produced persons like Rabindra Nath Tagore, Prem Chand, Saratchandra, C.V. Ramman, Jagdish Chandra Bose and Dr. Homi Baba. India is a land of villages and fields. Its fields are fed by the mighty rivers like the Ganga, Yamuna, Brahmaputra, Godavari, Narmada and Kaveri. The Gangetic Valley is the most fertile region of our land. The oceans that guard her coasts on three sides and the mighty Himalayas on the north have given my country natural frontiers from all sides. Ours is a secular state and various religions bloom here without hindrance. We have inherited our culture through the centuries. There is unity in diversity. We speak many languages, worship many gods and yet we have the same spirit, the spirit of India, running through the country, binding us together. My country is a tourists' delight. The Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri, The Qutab and the Red Fort are a few of the many wonders which attract people from all over the world. Kashmir has been described as a paradise on earth. The country of mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes is a fit abode for the gods. Ooty, Nilgiris and the temples of South India, as also Kajuraho, Ajanta and Ellora caves are the places one can boast of.
