I want that India back

The Golden Bird 
with rich culture, 
Widely heard 
for its treasure, 
Remembered for 
Great kings & great saints, 
who took birth 
on that land, 
That dignity, 
That greatness, 
Now, where is that? 
"I want that India back" 

Rulers and dynasties 
came and went, 
But no one 
too long remained, 
Found defeated 
and turned away, 
Against its unity 
and "Satyagraha", 
That brotherhood, 
That equality, 
Can anyone return me that? 
"I want that India back" 

The relation 
of teacher and student, 
For which 
famous was my land, 
where youth 
became inspiration, 
And followed truth 
away from corruption, 
That zeal, 
That spirit, 
Youth can only return that, 
"I want that India back"
