“National Maritime Day” is today, an important day
Happy and proud citizens of India we are to pay
Our heartful wishes to all connected with navigation
An ancient history we have for a celebration!
History going back to hoary past we have this day since
Nineteen sixty four- for centuries we have trade and commerce
Vast coast to be guarded from alien intrusion by us
Coast guards doing a great and serious service tremendous!
Shores seven thousand five hundred kilometers long, dozens
Of Ports –major and minor- all over Bharath amazing
Enabling ninety percent of trade International fine
Moving through ships quite large- a wonderful maritime gold mine!
