A Warrior's Vow
Oh My Jhansi, you are my Paradise,
My whole-hearted goal to win the fierce fights,
Every drop of blood I will sacrifice,
Acquire the precious land, back to our life.
When he left, promised to my beloved,
I will strongly protect his cherished land,
Will keep my promise, never deviate,
The final words to my dearest husband.
I glimpse a ruthless long fight on our way,
The people with us, we are not alone,
I will cherish their love, to God I pray,
I don't accept defeat as an option.
Prepared to win or die - to lay my life,
For my people, come death, come any strife!
