The devastating famine of Bengal
The poverty the hunger troubled you so much
You penned the novel Anandmath.
A sannyasi rebellion was there.
Untrained but disciplined fighters they were
Defeated the experienced Company soldiers.
The book originated the song Vandeymataram.
It fuelled the national awakening.
The image of nation mother was created
Nation mother became the Supreme Goddess.
The nation became mother to all
irrespective of caste and religion.
The book laid the foundation of freedom fighting.
And thereby making you Banking Chandra
Immortal for all times to come.
