Ronak Sawant explains the True Meaning of Our Indian National Flag (Tiranga)

The National Flag of India is a horizontal tricolour with Saffron at the top, White in the middle and the Chakra (Wheel) with 24 spokes in Navy Blue in its centre and Green at the bottom. It stands proudly on the ground and flies freely in the sky, symbolising India's sovereignty (independence) and unity. Everyone knows this, right? Now let's get to something that no one knows or is unknown. Let me explain the true meaning of our Indian National Flag with deep gratitude and great pride.


Our honourable Indian National Flag is colloquially and patriotically called the Tiranga. Tiranga means tricoloured or three colours. Tiranga represents the Tridevi.


The Tridevi means the three Goddesses, a trinity of supreme feminine divinity and consorts of the Trimurti.


The Trimurti (a trinity of supreme masculine divinity) are the three Guna Avataras or qualitative natural style incarnations of Bhagavan (God) Shri Krishna.


As I stated above that the Tiranga represents the Tridevi, so the three colours of our Tiranga or National Flag represents each Devi/Mata (Goddess/Mother) from the Tridevi:

  • Saffron represents Lakshmi
  • White represents Saraswati
  • Green represents Parvati


Such is the beauty of our Indian National Flag or Tiranga that represents the Tridevi or three Goddesses and celebrates the Shakti (Divine Feminine Power or Consorts of the Trimurti). The Goddess Lakshmi is the consort of God Vishnu, Goddess Saraswati is the consort of God Brahma, and Goddess Parvati is the consort of God Shiva.


Without the love and blessings of the Goddess, even God is incomplete. Not only this, but without the consort of God, nothing is complete.


As our Tiranga is the representation of the Tridevi, thus it truly depicts Mother Nature also. To put it in another way, if there is any flag in the world that Mother Nature innately (naturally) displays every day, it is the flag of Bharat (India).

Besides the above representation, there is also a signification of the above three colours. Saffron signifies courage, sacrifice and patriotism. White signifies truth in our words and actions, purity in our thoughts and peace in the nation. Green signifies prosperity, fertility and growth.


Apart from the above three colours, there is an important Chakra (Wheel) in Navy Blue in the centre of the National Flag known as the Dharma Chakra. The 24 spokes of the Dharma Chakra symbolise the 24 hours of the day.


The Dharma Chakra, along with the Tricolour, in general, our National Flag or Tiranga, symbolises the duty or virtue of every citizen of our beloved country Bharat (India). The righteous duty to safeguard our country from Adharma (that which is not in accord with Dharma, i.e., that which is against our Bharat) and to live life & work for its progress by being true (loyal) to our motherland.


If any person has this fallacy or misconception that the three colours of our Flag represent the various communities or "religions" per se, that person is a Murkh (idiot).


And if any person or community still tries to claim a particular colour, then one must never forget this:

Bharat is the oldest living continuous civilisation on Earth, so all the colours belong to us.


Indian National Flag (Tiranga)
Every true Bharatiya (Indian) and human should wear Saffron, White, Green and Navy Blue with deep gratitude and great pride.


Bharat Mata Ki Jai!

Vande Mataram!

"Mai Hindi Bhasha Hoon" - Hindi Diwas Poem by Ronak Sawant
मेरी कविता मेरे विद्यालय में हिंदी दिवस समारोह के लिए प्रकाशित हुई है।
(My poem is published in my school for Hindi Diwas celebration.)


"मैं हिंदी भाषा हूँ"

 

मैं भारत की राजभाषा हूँ

संस्कृत मेरी नींव है

मैं हिंदी भाषा हूँ

मुझमें अनंत जीव है

 

मैं विदेशी भाषाओं की तुलना में एक भली भाषा हूँ

मेरे शब्द गाय के दूध जैसे शुद्ध हैं

मैं हिंदी भाषा हूँ

मेरी शब्दावली सबको करती प्रबुद्ध है

 

मैं अभिव्यक्ति और भावनाओं से जुड़ी भाषा हूँ

हर रिश्ते को एक अलग नाम देना मेरी पहचान है

मैं हिंदी भाषा हूँ

और हिंदी बोली बोलने वाले लोग मेरी शान हैं

 

 

कवि - रोनक सावंत

"Mai Hindi Bhasha Hoon"

 

Mai Bharat ki Rajbhasha hoon

Sanskrit meri neev hai

Mai Hindi bhasha hoon

Mujhme anant jeev hai

 

Mai videshi bhashaaon ki tulna mein ek bhali bhasha hoon

Mere shabd gaay ke doodh jaise shuddh hain

Mai Hindi bhasha hoon

Meri shabdaavli sabko karti prabuddh hain

 

Mai abhivyakti aur bhaavnaon se judi bhasha hoon

Har rishte ko ek alag naam dena meri pehchaan hai

Mai Hindi bhasha hoon

Aur Hindi boli bolne wale log meri shaan hain

 

 

Poet - Ronak Sawant

Note:

मुझे अपने विद्यालय के हिंदी दिवस समारोह के लिए यह सुंदर कविता 'मैं हिंदी भाषा हूँ' लिखने में बहुत आनंद आया। मैंने कभी नहीं सोचा था कि मैं जिस विद्यालय में पढ़कर बड़ा हुआ हूँ, उसके लिए एक दिन मैं एक कविता लिखूँगा, जिसे विशेष रूप से स्कूल बोर्ड पर प्रकाशित किया जाएगा।

 

यह कविता मैंने हिंदी भाषा के दृष्टिकोण से लिखी है। इसलिए शीर्षक है "मैं हिंदी भाषा हूँ"। काव्य हिंदी भाषा की आत्मकथा के समान है, जो विश्व के सामने अपनी महानता और महिमा को व्यक्त करती है।

 

I had great pleasure in writing this beautiful poetry 'Mai Hindi Bhasha Hoon' for the Hindi Diwas celebrations of my school. I never thought that one day I would write a poem for the school I grew up learning in, which would be specially published on the school board.

 

I wrote this poem from the perspective of the Hindi language. Hence the title is "Mai Hindi Bhasha Hoon". The poetry is like an autobiography of the Hindi language, expressing its greatness and glory to the world.

"Har Ghar Tiranga, Har Ore Tiranga" - Poem by Ronak Sawant

"हर घर तिरंगा, हर ओर तिरंगा"


हर घर तिरंगा, हर ओर तिरंगा

हर दिल में तिरंगा, हर मन में तिरंगा

हर साँस में तिरंगा, खून की हर बूँद में तिरंगा

हमारी जान है तिरंगा, हमारी शान है तिरंगा

हमारी पहचान है तिरंगा, हमारा अभिमान है तिरंगा

सब रंग है सुंदर लेकिन अनोखा है हमारा तिरंगा

जिधर देखोगे गर्व से लहराता नज़र आएगा तिरंगा

हर घर तिरंगा, हर ओर तिरंगा

Har ghar Tiranga, Har ore Tiranga

Har dil mein Tiranga, Har mann mein Tiranga

Har saans mein Tiranga, Khoon ki har boond mein Tiranga

Humari jaan hai Tiranga, Humari shaan hai Tiranga

Humari pehchaan hai Tiranga, Humara abhimaan hai Tiranga

Sab rang hai sundar lekin anokha hai humara Tiranga

Jidhar dekhoge garv se lehrata nazar aaega Tiranga

Har ghar Tiranga, Har ore Tiranga

English Translation:

"Tricolour in Every Home, Tricolour Everywhere"

 

Tricolour in every home, Tricolour everywhere

Tricolour in every heart, Tricolour in every mind

Tricolour in every breath, Tricolour in every drop of blood

Tricolour is our life; Tricolour is our glory/feeling

Tricolour is our identity; Tricolour is our pride

All colours are beautiful, but our Tricolour is unique

Wherever you look, the Tricolour will be seen waving proudly

Tricolour in every home, Tricolour everywhere
