My Dear Motherland,
Today I have mixed feelings, I am feeling good that I am trying to have word with you but same time it’s killing me inside thinking why it took so long.

I could have spoken with you at any time, but I ignored it. I kept myself busy in school, tuitions, video games, burgers, and whatnot. I easily find time to watch a Disney movie, the same way I could have found time to talk to you. I am sorry. I know you have a heart of gold, you will forgive your child and write me back.

I will not crib about others today, who did what and who hasn’t. I want to tell you what I am going to do for you. In fact, I am too little to do anything for you, you are almighty, what I can do for you. Still, there are little things I can do to respect you and to value your gifts.

You gifted us food, shelter, freedom, and identity. But as we are not paying for it or fought for it, we have ignored you, we have taken you for granted. But I am going to correct my mistakes now.

From today I will not litter on roads, I will not use plastic. People and in some sense, I am responsible for all filth we throw at you. You gifted us lush green lands, food, and meadows with rainbows on top but we littered it with filth. We poisoned our food for profits, now onwards I will only eat organic food. We bored holes in your chest to squeeze out water and we wasted it in swimming pools. We scratched you to mine gold and diamonds to satisfy our egos. You gave us open fields to play but we locked ourselves in front of a console. There is natural beauty everywhere but our eyes stuck on phone screens.

You nourished us from birth and we dream to settle on a foreign land one day. We blame others for not doing their things. We keep pointing fingers at others, but we ourselves repeat same mistakes. Your great sons and daughters martyred for your freedom and we keep fighting for petty things.

Maybe we are like this because you are a mother, you loved us like own child. We took your love for granted. You gave us everything free of cost and we wasted it. You are powerful like almighty God, you can get it all straight in no time. You have all the weapons and tricks to get it done, but you have the heart of a mother, you will never harm your children.

It is up to us to understand, it is the time to wake up. We have already made a blunder, nevertheless, it is never too late to start. I promise you today, I will love you like my mother and I will prove it you that I am your good son/daughter.

Oh, mother; I love you from bottom of my heart. Please forgive me, please forgive us all for being so naive and ignorant. I will do all that in my capacity to make it all good.

Hugs and Kisses,
Your Son / Daughter

Poem – A letter to My Motherland

Note: The theme used for this poem or letter to my motherland is “a person working abroad”. The poem expresses the journey of a person who left the country in pursuit of better opportunities. This is our original poem, we hope you will like it. If so, do not forget to share and comment. 

Oh, Mother, I am so sorry,

I left you to spread my wings,
to live on my own,
I forgot how much you loved,
I never understood, how much you cared…

Everything there was just fine,
I was working till five from nine,
I thought I would do it on my own,
but I never felt it like home…

Oh, Mother, I can’t hold it anymore,
I am coming back to you,
Let me cry a river,
Let dry out every drop of tear…

Mother, I know you will welcome me with wide open arms…

Now I know how much you love me,
Now I know how much I love you,
Now I want to stay with you,
Now I want to live with you,
Now I am ready to die for you…

Oh, Mother, I love you…

मेरे देश के नाम खत – हिंदी में (Mere Desh Ke Naam Khat in Hindi)

मेरी प्यारी मातृभूमि,

आज मेरे मन में मिश्रित भावनाएं हैं, मुझे अच्छा लग रहां है कि मैं आपके साथ बात करने की कोशिश कर रहा हूं लेकिन यह सोचके बुरा लग रहां है की मुझे आपसे बात करनेमे इतना लंबा समय क्यों लगा।

मैं किसी भी समय आपके साथ बात कर सकता था, लेकिन मैंने आपको नजरअंदाज कर दिया। मैंने खुद को स्कूल, ट्यूशन, वीडियो गेम, बर्गर और ना जाने क्या क्या चीज़ों में व्यस्त रखा। मैं डिज्नी की एनीमेशन फिल्म देखने के लिए में आसानीसे वक्त निकालता हूँ, वैसे ही मुझे आपसे बात करने का समय मिल सकता था। पर ऐसा नहीं हुआ, है प्यारी भारतमाता मुझे क्षमा करें। मुझे पता है कि आपके पास बड़ा दिल है, आप अपने इस बच्चे को माफ कर देंगे|

मैं आज दूसरों के बारे में बात नहीं करूंगा, किसने क्या किया और किसने क्या नहीं किया। मैं आपको बताना चाहता हूं कि मैं आपके लिए क्या करूँगा। असल में, मैं आपके लिए कुछ करनेके लायक हूँ के नहीं यह भी मुझे पता नहीं, आप सर्वशक्तिमान हैं, मैं आपके लिए क्या कर सकता हूं। फिर भी, मैं आपके प्रति सम्मान के खातिर कुछ छोटी-छोटी चीजें कर सकता हूं।

आपने हमें भोजन, आश्रय, स्वतंत्रता और पहचान का उपहार दिया। लेकिन, चूंकि हम इसके लिए भुगतान नहीं कर रहे हैं या इसके लिए लड़े नहीं हैं, हमने आपको अनदेखा कर दिया है, हमने आपका ध्यान नहीं रखा। लेकिन अब मैं अपनी गलतियों को ठीक करने जा रहा हूं।

आज से मैं सड़कों पर कूड़ा नहीं फेकूंगा, मैं प्लास्टिक का उपयोग नहीं करूंगा। हम लोग हर तरफ दिखने वाली गंदगी के लिए जिम्मेदार हैं। आपने हमें हरे भरे जंगल, भोजन और मैदान के रूप में उपहार दिए लेकिन हमने इसे गंदगी से भंग कर दिया, जंगलोंको जलाया, काटा। हमने बाजारी लाभ के लिए हमारे भोजन को जहर बना दिया। जमीं से पानी निकालने के लिए हमने आपके शरीरमें अनगिनत छेड़ किये और हमने उस पानी को स्विमिंग पूल में बर्बाद कर दिया। हमने अपने अहंकार को पूरा करने के लिए सोने और हीरे ढून्ढ निकले, उनके लिए सुरंगे बनायीं। आपने हमें खेलने के लिए खुले मैदान दिए लेकिन हमने खुद को वीडियो कंसोल के सामने कैद कर दिया। हर जगह प्राकृतिक सौंदर्य है लेकिन हमारी आंखें फोन स्क्रीन पर फंस गईं हैं।

आपने हमें जन्म से पोषण दिया और और हम विदेश मैं रहनेके ख्वाब देखते है। हम दूसरों को दोषी ठहराते हैं, हम दूसरों पर उंगलियों उठाते रहते हैं, लेकिन हम खुद अपनी गलतियां दोहराते रहते है। आपके महान पुत्रों और बेटियों ने आपकी आजादी के लिए शहादत पसंद की और हम छोटी मोटी चीज़ों के लिए रोते रहतें है|

शायद हम इस तरह हैं क्योंकि आप एक मां हैं और आप अपने बच्चों के लिए सब अच्छा चाहते हैं। आपने हमें सब मुफ्त में दिया और हमने इसे बर्बाद कर दिया। आप शक्तिशाली हैं, सर्वशक्तिमान ईश्वर की तरह, आप हमें किसीभी समय सबक सीखा सकते हैं। लेकिन आपके पास एक मां का दिल है, आप कभी भी अपने बच्चों को नुकसान नहीं पहुंचाएंगे।

यह समझने की जिम्मेदारी हमारे ऊपर है, अब हमें अपनी आँखें खोलनी होगी। मैं आज आपको वादा करता हूं, मैं आपसे अपनी मां की तरह प्यार करूंगा और मैं आपको साबित कर दूंगा कि मैं आपका अच्छा बेटा / बेटी हूं।

ओह, माँ; मैं तहे दिल से आपसे माफ़ी मांगता हूँ। कृपया मुझे माफ़ कर दीजिये|

आपका बेटी / आपकी बेटी

Personal Note: This is a good initiative to promote letter writing. Today we got a lot of options to communicate, we have emails, we have chat app, messengers and what not. Businesses are replacing human support personnel with chat bots. Definitely, there are benefits of these technologies, we can find and connect with people, we can contact them, speak with them instantly. But somewhere in all these facilities, we missed the connect, the emotions behind the words.

Wishing someone on their birthdays or special occasion in person is what brings real happiness. Instead, we wish people with HBD in a chat app, there is no point in, someone if we don’t even want to take the effort to at least type “Happy Birthday”. This will never replace the feeling of a handmade, handwritten greeting card or a letter.

Nevertheless, I find this letter writing campaign interesting, we must appreciate the move and participate in it.

Note: If you like this sample letter/s on topic “Letter to my motherland / मेरे देश के नाम खत” then let us know in comments and give us a good rating. A lot of people are asking for the translation of this sample letter in Tamil, Marathi, Kannada, etc. I urge you guys to help me the in the translated version on this post. The same way people are asking about the address of the letter. Please note that all necessary information is given in the “Competition Details” section above. Thank you all such a great response to this article.
