Where a day and night,
Alike, are bright
Where the hustling cities
Rest between the folk stories
Where the sun sets
But no sooner, the oil lamps light up
Colours of love—you find on empty whites
An ambitious good number of youth
Dwell to reach great heights
Such a culture is where I belong to
Such a land, rare in a few
The rain here stops by windows
Driven by the smell of freshly fried fritters
The winter round a burning fire
Lights up bangles and distinct attires
As crowns, my men adorn turbans
While my women—aanchals
Clad in kurtas and sarees
Be it the Punjabis, the Tamils or the Biharis
From paper mache of Jammu
To sunrises and sunsets of Kanyakumari
Or from Gujarati garba to the forests of Arunachal
Every corner of my world bears a different story
Each flower here blooms to
The carols of Christmas,
The warmth of Eid or in the glory of Maa Kali
I arise as a Bengali
Solely and Proudly, I am an Indian.
Let us all join our hands and congratulate Anushi for her grand success.
