Oh ! youth of today,

How your eyes blind to see, That what my mother (India) bears Which she hides in the endless sea… Every moment that her eyes are brimmed With tears of blood of her beloved sons Who die in war or distant countries behind the bars. The night’s dark but the dawn’s near….

How your ears deaf to hear The mourning of the innocent hearts…….. Of the wife who parted from her husband in the battle,, Of the mother wailing over the shrouds of their assasined sons , Of the sweet voices of the once playful child silenced in the labour wild…… The night’s dark but the dawn’s near…..

How your toungue’s so dumb That you sit so silently, amid what you see and hear . The nights dark but the dawn’s near.

Is it yet not time, To get up from the ineffably dark sad night Raise up your voice That it be heard amid the loudest noise.. The night’s dark but the dawn’s near Oh! YOUTH of today get up , And fight to give India its right
