India Gate, Complete English Essay, Paragraph, Speech for Class 9, 10, 12 and Graduate Students Exam.

India Gate

India Gate is constructed as a memorial and was built in memory of 90,00 soldiers who laid down their lives during world war I. Located at Rajpath, India Gate is 42 m high and is a popular relaxation area during the summer evenings. India Gate also acts as a popular picnic spot during winter.

A tour of Lutyens’ Delhi just has to kick off with the stately India Gate at the east end of the broad Janpath (earlier Kingsway) that leads to the Rashtrapati Bhawan. The foundation stone was laid by HRH the Duke of Connaught in 1921 and the monument was dedicated to the nation 10 years later by the then Viceroy, Lord Irwin.

Another memorial, Amar Jawan Jyoti was added much later after India had said goodbye to its imperial rulers. It is in the form of a flame that burns day and night under the arch to remind the nation of soldiers who perished in the Indo-Pakistan War of December 1971. Above on both sides is inscribed INDIA, flanked by MCM, and to the right, XIX.

The shallow domed bowl at the top was intended to be filled with burning oil on anniversaries but this is rarely done. Nowadays, if you drive down the smooth wide expanse of Rajpath on a midsummer night, you might be excused for assuming that a huge glittering carnival is in progress at India Gate. The entire boulevard up to the monument is lined with cars, scooters, motorcycles, and what-have-you. In fact, all of Delhi seems to have converged to the emerald lawns of India Gate.

The air is thick with chatter, laughter, and the cries of assorted vendors peddling their wares. Most of the revellers come equipped with balls, Frisbees, or just a pack of playing cards. But India Gate has lots to offer in the name of entertainment. You can watch monkeys perform, enjoy a camel ride, blow soap bubbles all over the lawns, play with balloons and even get your insides turned inside out on a Ferris wheel.

But if you ask us, the best thing to do is to loll on the cool lawns, lick a bar of ice candy and watch the floodlit arch and the fountains nearby that seem magically lit up with coloured lights.
