Nani-jaan

 

Indian you are

Born and wild,

Indian you are

Old and styled.

 

Of poems who speak

To you rather, then us,

Be wise as you,

State kind, say us.

 

Indian are you,

So bold, and fine,

So smart by the curved mind

Whose eyes, are earths.

 

Indian, so kind,

Indian, so wild,

As Himalaya you have climbed

And urged to hurt.

 

Be forth, come hither,

As lover of soul

As poet

As chemist.

 

Indian, my India

Be Jai,

Be bird.

Not blue, be green

 

Be golden

Be Indian,

Be earthed.

Be golden

 

Be Indian

Be kind

Be earthed.

 

Be here for all, my luck, as I have lost too much.
