India is my country. I am a citizen of India. Our country is known by different ferent names such as Bharat, Hindus­tan and Hind. Ours is a very vast country and many people live in this country. In our country people belonging to various castes and creeds live together.

We have unity among ourselves. All the citizens have the right to speak and to study. Our national language is Hindi. There are other languages also, which are spoken in the country. They are Bengali, Malyalam, Tamil, Punjabi etc. Our national anthem is ‘Jana Gana Mana.” We have our own na­tional flag. Hockey is our national game, peacock is the national bird and tiger is our national animal.

In the north of our country there are Himalayas which protect us from winds and give rise to many rivers such as Ganga, Brahmaputra and Yamuna, etc. In the south, there are many seas and oceans.

Our country is an independent country, and it is the best example of unity in diversity. We are proud of it.


A zoo is a place where animals are kept in cages. We learn a lot of new things from there.
