This day we have given us a path to tread on. Now the time is again to decide whether we want to be a Nation of Proactive, Democratic people or want to be Reactionary. Let us chant a silent prayer for right path. Our Republic was started with high hopes and we should maintain the pace.
May our Nation and our Freedom be our Passion.
Here is the kalam of Ghalib on passion
partav-e-ḳhur se hai shabnam ko fanā kī ta.alīm
maiñ bhī huuñ ek ināyat kī nazar hote tak
yak nazar besh nahīñ fursat-e-hastī ġhāfil
garmī-e-bazm hai ik raqs-e-sharar hote tak
ġham-e-hastī kā ‘asad’ kis se ho juz marg ilaaj
sham.a har rañg meñ jaltī hai sahar hote tak
