On the Republic Day
Lets carry on ritually remembering
each other and greet
on occasions, on anniversaries,
lets carry on to count years,
add on the numbers,
for the delight of managers
of our affairs,
lets hope for the magic wand
to work miracles by the turn
of the endless night.
When you were my boyfriend,
I always wished that you could
spend your birthday with me.
Now that you are my fiancé,
my entire family wishes that you
could spend your birthday with them.
Today is the day we have to look back
For all the happy days we spend together
Today is the day we have to look forward
For all the happy days ahead for us
Today is the day we have to Celebrate,
For all the blessings God has showered on us
