Here's to the country of a billion people
(but whose citizens are feeble)
Of diverse cultures
( and power-hungry vultures)
The tolerant land of many religions
(but sections that want divisions)
The sub-continent of the world- where the snowfalls, desert trails, the tiger prawls
( where diplomats and infrastructure flaws)
With all its shortcomings, its my country, its my land.
Here's to it!!
Here's to those who gave us our freedom.
Here's to the soldiers that guard our frontiers.
Jai Hind! Vande Mataram!
