'Bapu'- A True Satyagrahi

Mahatma the enlightened one

Won a war without sword or gun

Born in Saurashtra, a small coastal town

Which because of him achieved world Renown

A gentle human with a rare philosophy

Left his imprint in the annals of History

He threw back the conquerors across the seas

By showing them the power of his inner peace

Ahimsa he followed and brought a bloodless revolution

Without him our country we couldn't call our Nation

His message to us is simple and clear

If we, ignore it, the price we pay is dear

Discriminate not on creed or caste

Stand united, be Indian first and last

Bapu, sometimes I dream if you were in our midst

Wouldn't you face up to the terrorists,

Wouldn't you convert him who smuggles and plunders

Wouldn't you set right our wayward leaders,

Wouldn't you today save my country

And restore it to its ultimate Glory???

Bapu, I dream, a dream, will my dream come true

Will you be born again

My country needs you.
