In a land where diversity originates, where success can be found in loss, and where the heart is bigger than the house, one needs no more explanation to hesitate in saying the name. Yes, it is INDIA. A very pleasant morning/afternoon to all the teachers and my dear friends. I Khadija from 1st standard is here to speak a few words about my country.
India is the seventh largest country in the world.
India became independent in 1947. Mahatma Gandhi is the Father of our Nation.
India is the world's Largest democracy.
From Kashmir in the north to Kanyakumari in the south, India has 28 states and 7 Union Territories.
It has many beautiful mountains, lakes, rivers and deserts and it is home to the sacred River Ganga.
India has many historical places like Taj Mahal, Char Minar, Qutum Minar, Red Fort. Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World is in my country.
The diversities of this beautiful country vary from state to state. The diversities are in terms of the languages spoken, religions followed, food habits all of which add to rich Indian culture.
Four of the world's major religions — Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism originated in this country.
Many festivals like Diwali, Holi, Eid, Christmas are all celebrated by sharing sweets with family, neighbours and friends.
One of the most outstanding thing is the culture and manners youngsters are taught here, the way they respect their parents and all elders.
India is the homeland of various dance forms, both classical and folk. Some of them are Bharatnatyam, Kathakali, Kuchipudi, Odissi and Manipuri.
Inspite of all these diversities, we all love and respect each other as Indians. Thus, setting India as a living example of secular harmony and Unity in diversity.
Proud to be an Indian and "I love my Country".
