Sample 1-Talk About a Song or a Poem About the History of Your Country
Nowadays, people had enormous chances to listen to contemporary and old songs. These songs are mood creators and mood changers for everyone. Today I would like to talk about one such song or poem about the history of my country is Vande Mataram. The poem was written by one of the most eminent personalities of India late Mr Bankim Chandra Chatterjee. Moreover, a poet, he was a novelist and journalist.
This poem describes the importance to respect our mother nation. Along with this, it also describes its diversities, social and cultural relationships and so on. When I was a child in 90’s I heard the song first on an old radio station called akashavani. At that time, I was only familiar with my native language Malayalam, rather than Malayalam; this was the alternate language I heard first. Maybe I was not able to understand its meaning at that time.
But my parents were ready to explain its meaning to me. Once I understand its meaning, I tried to learn the song and ready to share it with my friends. They are also excited to listen to and learn this song. When I start schooling, the same poem was sung in school assemblies. This was a song or poem about the history of my country.
Sample 2-Talk About a Song or a Poem About the History of Your Country
Well, Poem is the best word in the best order, and great author William Wordsworth says it. People recite poems not only to entertain themselves but also want to equip themselves with immense knowledge. Really poems relax individuals. Here, I would like to talk about a poem that I read when I was in 10th standard, and the name of the poem was Where the mind is without fear, and the head is held high.
Where knowledge is free, and the world has not been broken up into fragments. So this poem is a sort of prayer by the author to awaken the spirit of his countrymen. It’s a thought-provoking poem, and the poet prays to God to empower his countrymen so that they can speak the truth, fight for their rights as well as fight against evil effects. I loved this poem.
It’s really a great tribute from the author to awaken the spirit of the people because it was written before independence when people were not aware of their rights when knowledge was only the right of the elite people, and it was not the right of the poor people. So poet urges people to gain knowledge as knowledge must be free for the downtrodden.
The poet wants his countrymen should hold their head high so that they can move freely without any kind of fear in their mind, and it’s not about only native people of a nation but also about the world’s people to be united so that the whole world should be counted as one entity.
Thus, the poet wants such a world for all people, which really motivates me to do something for my country as I live in an independent country. So I think every one must be able to do something for his country or countrymen. Such type of thought-provoking poem is really needed today to have liberal thinking.
