Republic Day Messages

Republic Day SMS in Hindi

Azad BHAARAT ke Nalayako,
Aaj agar Valentine day hota to message box overflow hota.
Chalo utho
Or sab ko Republic Day ki Shubhkamnaye do.

100 Crore se upar ki Abaadi,
28 States,
15 Bhashayen,
Phir bhi hum sab Ek hain.

Main iska Hanuman hoon
Ye desh mera RAM hai,
Chhati chir ke dekh lo
Andar baitha HINDUSTAN hai.
Jay Hind!

Ye Nafrat Buri Hai, Na Paalo Isay
Dilo Main Khalish Hai ,Nikalo Isay
Na Tera ,Na Mera ,Na Iska , Na Uska
Ye Sab Ka Watan Hai,Bacha Lo Isay

Aaj main aap se apne dil ki bat kahna chata h
han wohi 3 alfaz jo aap sunna chahte hai
wo hi 3 alfaz jo aap k dil ko chule

Watan hamara misaal mohabat ki,
Todta hai deewaar nafrat ki,
Meri Khush naseebi mili zindagi is chaman mein
Bhula na sake koi iski khushbo saton janam mein.

Aao jhukke salam kare unko jinke,
Hisse me ye mukam aata hai,
Khushnasib hota hai wo khun,
Jo desh ke kaam aata hai.
“Jay hind Jay bharat”

Aajadi ki kabhi shaam nahi hone denge,
Sahidon ki kurbani badnaam nahi hone denge,
Bachi ho jo ek bund bhi garam lahu ki…
Tab tak bharat mata ka aanchal nilaam nahi hane denge.

Na zuban se,
Na nigahon se,
Na dimag se,
Na rango se,
Na greeting se,
Na gift se,
Aapko Jashne Azadi Mubarak direct dil se.
