The National Pledge of India is not a part of the Indian constitution and is not mentioned anywhere in the Indian Constitution. Moreover, it is commonly found published in the opening pages of academy books. The Purpose of the National Pledge is to add value to our country’s rich and varied heritage. In Addition, it teaches to respect everyone, especially elders, teachers, parents, with the greatest courtesy. The Pledge of India is written by a naturopathy doctor and a bureaucrat – Pydimarri Venkata Subba Rao. It was first published in Telugu.
India is my country. All Indians are my brothers and sisters.
I love my country and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage.
I shall always strive to be worthy of it.
I shall give my parents, teachers, and all elders respect, and treat everyone with courtesy.
To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion. In their well-being and prosperity alone, lies my happiness.
Written by Pydimarri Venkata Subba Rao
