Asato ma sadgamaya,
Tamaso ma jyotirgamay,
Mirtyor-ma amritang gamaya.
Lead me from the untruth to the Truth
From darkness to light
And from Death to Immortality
Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free.
Into that heaven of freedom, my father let my country awake.
Where the mind has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls.
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
India is my country; all Indians are my brother and sisters.
I love my country, and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage.
I shall always try to be worthy of it.
I shall always give my parents, teachers and elders respect and treat everyone with courtesy.
To my country and my people I pledge my devotion,
In their well- being and prosperity alone lies my happiness.
