Great country, great people
Noble thoughts, noble deeds
Hallowed Himalayas, reverberating rivers
Fertile fields, magnificent minerals
Fascinating forests, flora and fauna
Lovely languages, lovely people
Seers and saints, philosophers and scientists
Variety of knowledge, variety of culture
Unity in diversity all that we nurture
Love is God, Truth is God
All that we preach sure with nod
Values of life piously pursued!
Ichobad – glory going?
Old order changeth yielding place to new
New order bringeth glory in high view
Along with growth, greed and selfishness in a few
Negative values spread in all its hue!
Older people lamenting loss of values
Younger ones losing faith in moral values
Middle ones mooring neither here nor there
Ship of the Nation inching without care!
What a great people
What a great fall
Violence, betrayal, backstabbing
Jealousy, ingratitude, high cheating
Falsehood, corruption, dishonesty
Deceptions, treachery, infidelity
All that hinders Nation’s progress
All that plunders people’s wealth
All we need is a Mahatma’s lead
All we plead is noble deed
Another form of freedom struggle
To ensure peace and plenty free from peril!
Shall we get another Mahatma
To involve the intellectuals
To galvanize the society
To integrate the fractured nation
To infuse faith and confidence
To inject oneness and brotherhood
To lift us from lethargy and indifference!
Of! my beloved Mother Bharath!
Let me set my vision so high
Let my Bharath soar to sky
Let these winged words fly and fly
Till we see the Heaven so nice!
