    National Pledge

    भारत मेरा देश है |
    सभी भारतीय मेरे भाई बहन है |
    मुझे अपने देश से प्रेम है और उसकी संपन्न और विविध परंपरा पर गर्व है |
    उसके योग्य होने के लिए मेरा प्रयत्न ज़ारी रहेगा |
    माता-पिता, गुरु तथा अग्रज मेरे आदरणीय होंगे और उनसे मेरा व्यवहार सम्मानपूर्ण होगा |
    मेरी प्रतिञा है कि अपने देश और जनता के प्रति मेरी श्रधा अटल रहेगी |
    उनकी उन्नति और समृद्धि पर ही मेरा सुख निर्भर है |
    जय हिंद |

    Our National pledge is the soul of every individual, society and the Nation.
    Today we have become so narrow-minded . We consider it irrelevant and
    to understand the meaning of the pledge and to put it into practice.

    Let us understand the meaning of the sentences in the ‘Pledge'

    Bharat (India) is my country ’ :

    We say, ‘Bharat is my country’, but do we really feel so?
    Only if we sincerely have this feeling that 'This is my country', will we care
    for it and be ready to protect it. If this happens, there will not be any problems
    in our country. The country will be ‘Sujalam Sufalam’ (Enriched with flora and fauna)
    and there will be comprehensive development of the country.

    ‘All Bharatiyas (Indians) are my brothers and sisters ’ :

    We should have such a broad view that ,‘each individual
    in this country is my brother/sister. The whole country is my family’. But
    do we behave like this? No! If we actually follow these lines and behave
    accordingly, then we will not fight amongst ourselves. All will live harmoniously
    and happily together. Nowadays, even school going children fight among
    themselves in the class and use abusive words. If we have this broad thinking
    that 'This universe is my home', then the day is not far when Ramrajya
    (Rule of Righteousness) will be established.

    ‘I love my country ’ :

    If I love my country, then I should have immense love for
    every person and everything in this country. If we behave in this manner,
    then there will not be any problems in this country. Each family in the country,
    and thus, the whole country will live happily.

    ‘I am proud of its rich and varied heritage’ : ,

    Our traditions are a reflection of our culture. Our culture is
    so superior that it can guide the whole world. Our culture teaches us that
    each and every individual should be in a state of happiness. Sacrifice is our
    tradition. When we meet one another, we greet each other respectfully with
    'Namaskar' (A respectful greeting that is accompanied by a gesture of joining
    the palms with the fingertips pointing upwards and held close to the chest).
    We should respect these traditions. Following our traditions will help awaken
    in us a sense of pride towards the Nation. Sadly, we are forgetting all this
    because of modernity and blind imitation of Western traditions.

    ‘I shall always strive to be worthy of it (culture)' :

    Only by behaving according to our traditions, can we carry
    them forward to the next generation. Our behaviour and speech should match
    our traditions. However, this does not happen in reality. While speaking on a
    telephone we say, ‘Hello’ instead of ‘Namaskar’. If we do not adhere to our
    traditions, then how will we be able to carry them forward to the future

    ‘I shall give respect to my parents, teachers and elders and treat
    everyone with courtesy’ :

    Do we really pay obeisance to our parents everyday? No. We
    do not respect our teachers. Some children mock their teachers. All this is sinful.
    Let us promise to pay obeisance to our parents and teachers everyday from today
    onwards. Also, let us pledge to treat everyone with courtesy. If we are polite to
    everyone, then we will not have enmity with anyone.

    ‘To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion' :

    Although we take a pledge like this; do we really care for
    the progress and protection of our country and our fellow countrymen? We should
    be loyal to our country, culture and Dharma.

    ‘In their (country and countrymen’s) well being and prosperity
    alone, lies my happiness' :

    Each of our acts should be for the benefit of others. Our
    happiness should lie in the happiness and progress of our fellow countrymen.
    Unfortunately, today we witness demonic attitude in the society.
