Lead kindly light amidst the encircling gloom
Here is the light of lights and the Lord of Light!
India that is Bharath- my holy Motherland
Indeed is a punya bhumi- very sacred land!
Vasudeiva kutumbakam- universe our home
Accommodating all faiths and religions wholesome.
All religions have their principles and practices
Aimed at making the people noble and human
All to follow meticulously with advantages
A boon indeed to the humans through tradition.
Pongal day-Makara Sankaranthi-is today
A holy day to thank the Lord of Light-the Sun
But for HIM farmers can do no agriculture
Sans food people have no present or future!
