(The great poet Bharathi lived in Tamil Nadu of India and wrote great poems. This is one of the great poems he wrote. Readers would see that this is relevant to whichever land they belong  and would make tears appear in their eyes.)


This is the land, where mother and father mine,
Lead a happy life  chattering loving words,
This is the land, where my people before me,
Lived thousands of years till their death,
This is the land, where in their glorious minds,
Thousands of thoughts arose to make it a better place,
Shall I not salute the land, and tell what is in my mind,
And praise it to my hearts content?
Shall I not salute this land with chants of,
“Mother I salute you, Mother I salute you”?

This is the land which gave me life, brought me up,
And showered bountiful mercy on me,
This is the land where our mothers arose,
And knew the world by innocent prattling,
This is the land where they became sweet maidens,
And played in the cool light of the full moon,
This is the land where they played in the water,
With their golden bodies and returned home,
Shall I not salute this land with chants of,
“Mother I salute you, Mother I salute you”?

This is the land where they became lasses,
Married and managed their homes,
This is the land where they fed,
Their little golden ones and hugged them,
It is this land where they grew like lions,
And made it  a land surrounded by places of worship,
This is the and where they died,
And their ashes became one with its soil,
Shall I not salute this land with chants of,
“Mother I salute you, Mother I salute you”?
