When
I was thinking about the next word for the A to Z Blog Challenge which starts
with a big “I”.  My thoughts went on and on and on with many words, but suddenly
it stopped at the word “INDIA” Yes, my own nation topped the list.  A beautiful country in the universe, we call it MOTHER INDIA. 

My
memories went back to my childhood days.  In school we start our days with
the following pledge which I still remember and sometimes whisper too.
Yes, it still lingers in our minds and on our lips.

Here
is the pledge we make every day in the morning along with the morning
prayer.  Yes we start our school day with this pledge.  It still continues in all the Indian schools.

golden old days are gone forever!
