1947

200 years, we've waited long,
200 years, we've been silenced,
200 years the British grew too strong,
200 years ago their wrath commenced.
Today the tricolour flag shall hoist high,
Today the past glory shall slowly revive,
Today in our hands, our power will lie,
Today we shall again strive.
We are now a nation rebuilt
We shall soon be a stronger power,
We are ones, who were built,
We were built by ones who dare not cower.
And this will write our story,
And from today we shan't be smaller
And our struggle will be our glory,
And from this day, each Indian will stand taller.
This is the new India reborn,
This is the struggle of a land for long, torn.
