கொடி பறக்குது / Flag Flying

Happy Independence Day
கொடி பறக்குது
நம் தேசிய கொடி பறக்குது
நீல வானில் வண்ணகலவையாய்
ஒற்றுமையை குறிக்கின்ற வகையில்
கொடி பறக்குது

கொட்டும் மழையிலும்
கொளுத்தும் வெயிலிலும்
ஒற்றுமை ஒன்றே நம் உடமை என
கொடி பறக்குது
கோட்டை கொத்தளத்தில் இருந்து.

The flag hoisted at Fort St. George, Chennai. And it is believed to be the tallest flagpole in India.

Happy Independence Day

I guess the flagpole must be a very sturdy one if it's so very tall!

Singhalalok - the lines also reflects the same - oneness.

I too think it is the tallest. There is one more thing. After India achieved Independence, the first Indian tri-color flag was hoisted from this very location :)

Hi Jeevan,
Beautiful poem and a lovely photo of the Indian flag!
Happy belated Independence Day to you!
Have a Wonderful Week!
Peace :)

PS. At 150 feet, that is a very tall flag staff and allegedly the 2nd highest in the country (Wiki).
