(A poem dedicated to our National Animal Tiger on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of the Project Tiger -A Tiger conservation program of the Government of India)
Its shining eyes a glorious mark,
Of a nation's eminence which raises heads high
Its every step so giant and brave,
Speaks of a nation's strength and toil.
The magnificent orange black stripes,
Reminiscence of stalwarts sacrifice.
Its vibrant far reaching ferocious roar,
Speaks volumes of our soldiers valour and might,
Leaving the enemies trembling in plight,
Alert and Agile day and night.
Its gorgeous jump to catch its prey,
A glimpse of a nation which never stops,
Steadfast to achieve come what may, Progressing everyday at sky's height .
O symbol of national pride!,
You my great land's heart and soul,
Let your roar reverberate far and wide,
To remind my nation of its glory sublime,
The cradle of illuminated minds.
