Freedom from fear is the freedom
I claim for you my motherland!
Freedom from the burden of the ages, bending your head,
breaking your back, blinding your eyes to the beckoning
call of the future;
Freedom from the shackles of slumber wherewith
you fasten yourself in night’s stillness,
mistrusting the star that speaks of truth’s adventurous paths
On the memorable day of 15th August 1947, our motherland dawned to the greatest victory of freedom paving the path for a brighter and more promising future for our nation.
