Oh, Enlightened one

Mehak Varun
Oh, Enlightened one 

The gentle soul 
the freedom of self 
taught who love 
just pure affection
a spirit so free 
gained bliss of the being.

The silence that is strong 
sustaining the belong 
in a world more white 
creating the delight. 

Saffron, white and green 
fluttering in the heavenly blues 
Unity is the strength 
humanity is the depth. 

Oh, Enlightened one 
ignite our souls too. 

You are the God's creation 
a gentle human 
who won the war 
without gun or sword 
a philosophy so rare 
an epitome of calmness 
standing right up there.  

We salute you 
a sublime man 
our pride, father of our nation 
we bow before you 
today and evermore.
