My soulful homage


Netaji, I bow to your indomitable soul.

Netaji, I bow to your indefatigable life.

Netaji, I bow to your sleepless and breathless


Netaji, I am now here in Tokyo, Japan.

I am here at your blessingful Renko-ji Temple.

It is here that I am hearing your oneness-heart-bell

Constantly ringing.

Netaji, I am here at your peaceful shrine.

It is here that India's independence-dreamers,

India's independence-lovers,

And India's independence-fighters

Proudly, voraciously and regularly dine.

Netaji, it is here at your fruitful Long Home

That India's division-foolishness,


And division-madness

Unmistakably fail to roam.

Netaji, beauty of the Bengali heart you were.

Netaji, responsibility of the Indian life you were.

Netaji, capacity of the sub-continent-unity you were.

Japan, O beauty's land,

Lovingly, affectionately, devotedly and self-givingly

You treasure our beloved Netaji.

My Bengali aspiration-heart,

My Indian dedication-life

And my world-peace-manifestation-dream

Love you.
