On Independence Day- “Arise! O friend!”


from the gravels of the ploughed fields,
through the freshly sown seeds
Arise!
O! friend,
to rear thou homeland’s
future and destiny…

with courage limitless, dare the soldiers
in meagre resources,grows the farmer
Arise!O! friend
from the particles of the soil
to nurture the values of thy motherland…

in myriad colours of faces and races
under sovereign of God’s grace
lives the fraternity of thy mankind
Come !Rise! from the
ashes of the saluting fighters
to guide the tender minds …

a paradigm of culture, traditions & values,
spread the fragrance of love and brotherhood
through the seven oceans and skies
Rise! dear friend,
above the narrowed walls of hatred and abhorrence
to create an epitome of multitude.

Let the mast fly high
steer through the dark
to let the ensign
shine,
with a glorious twinkle…
Sail! through those muddy waters
Rise! from the depths of the ocean of wisdom
to let the world follow,
Thou!
in such an realm of Utopia
lead my motherland,
O! Comrade ,
Thou! Companion!
