The Spirit of India

Reading Time: 1 minute

A patriotic poem by Manthena Damodara, in Different Truths. 

India is not, in essence, a piece of earth
It represents a sea of marvellous mirth 
has its reputedly robust roots 
Facilitating us well with felicitous fruits

Culture nurtures its sustainable structure 
Filling magnanimous minds with rapture
We are not affected by reign of religions
We notice the Omnipresent in all regions

Our speak of all eternal truths 
Nourishing the mind to rise above myths 
Spiritual matters are not called mysteries 
When can make glorious histories

We never represent caste, colour and creed 
We always feel that we are of human breed
We sow on the soil of mind humanity’s seed
Without fostering perverse of greed

M. K. propounded the theory of peace
His theory acquired prime prominence at pace
The world embraced lofty ideals for emulation 
His loftiness brought him worldwide reputation 
India’s real secularism is greeted with optimism 
Promoting great ’ vision of rare humanism
Dwelling diversity has room for unique oneness 
Sustaining the spirit with its enlivening essence.
