.July 10 Vellore Mutiny against British rule in India 1806

Journey to Freedom was a long path arduous and long
All over the country –my Sacred Motherlan quite strong
East and West, South and North to be guided by the great later
But valiant warriors paved the path much earlier!

Mutinies several here and there against the British
Quite sufficient for them to realize the frame of mind
The Vellore mutiny on this day years two hundred
And eleven ago large scale violence by our sepoys!

The revolt, taking place in the South Indian city
Of Vellore Fort-killing and wounding British sans pity
Proximate cause resentment against dress code imposed
No religious marks for Hindus; shaven face for Muslims!
