By Rupali Sant - Std IV
His heart was full of love
Towards all human beings
Himself, he was truth incarnate
And gentle like a dove.
He travelled East and West
But what was his quest
It was for the country's sake
It was for the country's best.
He freed our country from the foreign yoke
In a non-violent way
And gave his life for the country's sake
Facing the bullet of astray.
Hail to the Bapuji
Hail, father of all my country men
You have left us a great legacy
Of truth and sharing with everyone.
You look so simple at the spinning wheel
yet glory of labour to us you have taught
To the teeming hungry millions
Hope you have brought.
Your noble pain we shall tread
And strive to keep our country free
From bare and selfish thoughts
And any kind of slavery.
