MY NATION

​   

               

THE LAND WHOSE NAME ITSELF EVOKES MIRTH
THE LAND WHICH HAS GIVEN BIRTH, 
TO MANY GREATS OF THE WORLD.
I AM PROUD TO SALUTE MY TRICOLOUR UNFURLED.

THE LAND OF VARIOUS CULTURES,
THE LAND WHERE LOVE WITH PEACE JUNCTURES.
THE MOST PROUD MOMENT OF MY LIFE WAS THEN,
IN THIS NATION I TOOK A BIRTH WHEN.

THE LAND WHICH HAS SEEN MANY SACRIFICES FOR IT,
THE LAND WHICH IN OUR HEART HAS LIT,
THE LAMPS OF RESPECT FOR THOSE DEEDS OF BRAVERY, 
WHICH HELPED IT ESCAPE THE FOREIGN SLAVERY.

THE BIRTH LAND OF INNUMERABLE GODS, 
THE LAND OF MUSICAL CHORDS,
THE LAND WERE BEAUTIFUL IS EVERY DANCE,
THEY WILL THRILL YOU JUST AT A GLANCE. 

THE LAND OF FABULOUS SITES,
THE LAND OF VARIOUS RITUALS AND RITES,
THE LAND WHERE PEOPLE SERVE ,
ONLY THE FOOD OF HAPPINESS AND LOVE.

WHEN I SEE MY NATION TAKING HIGH FLIGHTS,
TIME AND AGAIN TOUCHING NEW HEIGHTS,
I GET A PRIDEFUL SENSATION,
AND MY HEART SINGS GLORIES FOR MY NATION.
