O Great Mother India!
Written by Kanhaiya Shah
My Mother, O Great Mother India!
As I am closing my eyes to take a rest,
With wondrous dreams for your prosperous future;
With utmost pride, I am laying down among the best.
I can see my family standing there;
Eager to meet me on this auspicious day.
Beaming with strength, pride, and honour;
With teary eyes and the heads held high.
My last salute and heartfelt admiration to our pride tiranga;
Forever may this flag always fly over my beloved India.
I want to feel those goosebumps and solemn reverence;
Once again, for the last time, while singing Jana-Gana-Mana.
My first love, peace-loving, most powerful nation;
If almighty God would bestow me my last wish.
I’d ask for the boon to reincarnate on this holy land;
And for the pride of India, sacrifice this life once again.
