Whatever be the present state of affairs in our Mother land, as Indians we still need to be grateful for the freedom that was gained by our forefathers. Our present duty is to cherish it and to guard it. The present scenario though very turbulent and shameful, it need be faced, addressed and solved. Perhaps this is the hard beginning of our true emergence as free and fair India. Only let us respect and acknowledge the good will of the other. Let us join hands in the effort to build a noble country. Let the desired change begin in me, an Indian.

May mother Mary assumed into heaven, intercede for our country to be free of all that mars the image of our land. Let our land emerge with beauty of soul, truth and goodness. Strife and struggle will never cease but together let us overcome with ease and live in peace.
May the call for peace by Tariq Jahan in Brittain be a model to each one of us. Revenge never benefits. To forgive and to forego one needs magnanimity. Mary, our Mother, intercede for us with your Son Jesus on our behalf.
