Yesterday was the birthday of legendary freedom fighter Veerapandiya Kattabomman
India that is Bharath- my Motherland holy
Bharath matha – my great, beloved Mother truly
Gave birth to many people noble in all her land
Making the nation a proud and happy band!
Local chieftains led the war of freedom very strong
Many in number all over the nation to throng
Veera Pandiya Kattabomman is one such great
From the far off south, Panjalankuruchi- a Fort.
Born on January third seventeen sixty –this day
Was against the British East India Company,
Betrayed by our own countrymen, arrested,
Questioned and in public in Kayaththar hanged!
