OUR INDIA

The torrent of Ganges
Deep gorge of Himalayan ranges
Deccan plateaus with broad vastness
Stir up our ingrained INDIANNESS.

Diversity of cultures
Reflected in the creativity of sculptures.
Beyond the contours of the cultures
We are identical by our very natures.

“Divide & rule” parted us
Borderline was drawn over us
You exasperated our holy conscience
Nevertheless, we showed you non-Violence.

We are still one of a kind
Having the legacy of Taj & Sind
Following the philosophy of Jain & Budh
That altogether we call our Hind.
