My Mother India,
Miss Agnes Bojaxhiu came from Albania
To claim you as her heart-home
And to sleeplessly serve
Your poor, sick and helpless children.
This Albanian is now
India’s beloved Mother Teresa.
O Mother India,
As these two non-Indians
Claimed you and became
Indian to the core,
Even so, we would like to offer them
Our untiring gratitude
From the inmost recesses of our hearts.
