India that is Bharath got freedom at midnight
After sacrifices great over decades quite tight
By people of all religions and regions, culture
And languages, castes and creeds, young and old by nature!
East and west, North and South, people were led by Gandhi
Galvanizing the efforts and energy of all
The poor and rich, men and women, read and unread whole
Stood by the Mahatma – non-violence had its role!
Dheeran Chinnamalai from Tamilnadu was one
Who struggled relentless till he with all others to win
Against the British East India Company hard
A Kongu Chieftain and Palayakkarar forward!
One of the main commanders Chinnamalai to fight
In the Polygar Wars at the start of eighteen hundreds
Helped Tippu Sultan win in Srirangapatna great
We pay homage to the warrior on this day holy!
