Great men and women are born here by Thy grace
To inspire and support the people to face
Atrocities by the people in power
Injustice done in an inhuman manner!
Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Gandhi!
The world has seen them at the top so greatly
Nelson Mandela joins that noble tribe
Inspired, worked and died for values great and nice!
Noble values he cherished, nursed and nurtured
Democracy, freedom and equality,
Diversity, reconciliation, respect
All quite dear to his noble heart-perfect!
Born in nineteen eighteen, jailed in sixty four
Known as “four sixty six sixty four” released in ninety
“Peace” with human rights, for which he fought and won
World pays its homage to that noble in ton!
