Victory to our Motherland ‘Bhārata’
greatly adorable by us.
Victory to the prolific penance of the warriors
who fought and achieved freedom of our country. (0)
*
Our Motherland has the brilliance
of beauteous feet washed by oceans.
She has graceful smiles with gestures
in the water of the sacred River Gańgā.
She bears flavorous and fragrant zephyr
in the beautiful flower-gardens.
In the clusters of trees,
she contains colourful and comely figures.
Having sweet cooing of birds
forming auspicious songs,
she is prosperous with green crops.
Victory to our Motherland ‘Bhārata’
greatly adorable by us. (1).
*
Ours is the Motherland embellished
with immense wealth and fortune.
She spreads from Kanyākumārī
up to the lofty Himālaya.
She forms beauteous multi-coloured garland
intersticed with the national thread of ‘Bhāratīyatā’, Indianness.
Long live the service to humanity
among her dear children with the feelings of unity.
Victory to our Motherland ‘Bhārata’
greatly adorable by us. (2)
*
The trio of our Army, Air Force and Navy
shines unique in the world.
Fortunate and blessed, this trio bears
fearless warriors and quells the foes bravely.
The tricolour flag renders peace in every mind
and rejoices with the feelings
of dedication, noble friendship and equality.
Triumph to the tricolour that spreads
the waves of love and fraternity.
Victorious is our adorable Motherland India. (3)
*
Our country bears excellent figure
with many beautiful temples.
In the creation of Nature,
our Motherland has the emergence
of vast theatre and musical tone.
She offers heavenly happiness
and forms the repository of renowned illustrations.
Verily adorable, she sprinkles the nectar of glory.
In view of noble deeds and rendering peace,
she is admired all over the world.
Victory to our adorable Motherland India. (4)
*
Here by the flow of marvellous culture,
world is sanctified and adored.
Impeccable, it shines with the great wise persons
worshipped by learning.
It has profuse wealth of arts, science
and other various streams.
It has prosperity of light in every aspect
and is honoured in the whole world.
Receptacle of noble qualities,
it has gained grand effulgent glory.
Victory to that culture of our Motherland India. (5)
*
In our country, here prevails friendship,
with equal fellow-feeling and equal mind.
The incantation of national integration
is the prime resplendent light.
We have several paths to cover;
but the destination is one
and that should be preserved with righteous policy.
In the lake of heart here eternally blooms
the beautiful lotus of humanitarianism.
Adorable and victorious is our Motherland Bhāratavarsha. (6)
