Country Devotional Song #Desh Bhakti Geet

I participated in the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ “Desh Bhakti Geet (Country Devotional Song) Competition. I got an SMS from the Directorate of Telecommunication and they asked me to participate in the competition.

There was no language barrier. Writing was allowed in English and in all regional languages of India

I am fluent in English, Marathi, Konkani and Hindi and my father was a teacher of Marathi and history. For his memory, I chose to write in Marathi.

This is my ” Desh Bhakti Geet’

हे मातृभूमी,जननी,वेदांती
समर्पित तुझ्या चरणांसी
कोटी कोटी दंडवते देती
आम्ही भारतवासी ( कोरस)

थेंब थेंब पडला रक्ताचा
नव्हता तो कुठल्याही जातीचा
होता फक्त भारतीयांचा
मानवधर्माचा ||१||

लाल,काळी, तपकिरी माती
एकाच रक्ताच्या साऱ्या जाती
सर्व धर्म समभाव नांदती
भाषांची इथे वस्ती ||२||

हिमालयानं राखली शान
मंगलयानानं वाढवला मान
साऱ्या जगी तुझा सन्मान
असाच असू दे वरदान ||३||

Translation:

O’ Motherland, mother of Vedas
dedicated to your footsteps.
Millions of Indians,
bowed before you to respect.

Drops of blood fell,
it was not of any caste.
It was only of Indians
and of humanism.

Red, black, brown soil,
all castes are of the same blood
and all religions are equal
so many languages inhabit here.

The splendor of the Himalayas
Mangalyaan extended respect
your honor in all over the world
may such a gift be upon us.
