Poems by

India, my land

a poem by Rajeswari

A land with rich heritage and culture
main occupation of the people is simple agriculture;

many great heroes have been born in this nation
‘ahimsa’ is one of its glorious tradition;

temples and mosques, gurudwaras and churches
god is one that’s what my country preaches;

many achievements my country has to its credit
and still striving hard to increase its merits;

great saints have set a path for spiritual upliftment
which draws foreigners to this subcontinent

with the breathtaking beauty of the himalayas in the north
tranquility offering Kanyakumari in the south

with colourful tribes of the rugged east
and prosperous trading centres of the west

land of mysticism and unknown power
BHARATMATA stands as great as ever.
