India

Lush green fields
And rivers wide
Great mountains
And deserts divide

My country, my country
India my mother
The world in her stride

The cradle of civilization
The mother of History
The inventor of Zero
Of Ayurveda, the earliest medicine

My country, my country
India my mother
The world in her stride

The power of yoga
Religions of peace
The keeper of karma
The wonder that cannot ever cease

My country, my country
India my mother
The world in her stride

Chess was born here
So were Buddhism and Jainism
Great Emperors reigned here
So did gurus like Vivekanda and Aurobindo

My country, my country
India my mother
The world in her stride

Her sons and daughters fought for her freedom
Led by Gandhi, her beloved son
Non-violence and dharma
His weapons of civil war

My country, my country
India my mother
The world in her stride

To the modern world she gave peace
Captains of industry
The might of a billion people
The world’s largest democracy

My country, my country
India my mother
The world in her stride

Today we are many colors
Kites of all shapes flying in the sky
The just with the unjust
The rich with the vast poor

And it is freedom we need
Yet once again
Freedom that liberates
Us from our pains

Of poverty and hunger
Of corruption and terror
Of narrowness and fanaticism
Of education and development

Come let us join together
Once more in full battle cry
Our challenges are great
But not insurmountable

Together we shall overcome
Make the world a better place
We will let no one stay hungry
Or poor or scared

My country, my country
India my mother

Our country, our pride
