As the bangles sing and saris dance

I enunciate the words “Amar Desh”

Red and green run through my veins

 

Coconut infused rice aromates my nose

Stomach and heart filled with the sense of my own

As the bangles sing and saris dance

 

Fresh mango glistens in the sun ready to be picked

A bengal tiger prowls through the tall grass

Red and green run through my veins

 

Rickshaws trail through mud in search of their next guest

The council of cousins plan the next prank on the newly weds

As the bangles sing and saris dance

 

Tree lights border homes of all sizes

Celebration brings together all social classes

Red and green run through my veins

 

I enunciate the words “Amar Desh”

Taking full pride in saying my country

As the bangles sing and saris dance

Red and green run through my veins
