Mother! My salutes to you

Mother! My salute to you

For giving me the birth

Throwing me amid the knives

 Mother let me fold my hands

For plucking my head and throwing it among these stones


Mother! My endless salutations to you

For not delivering me as a lifeless

For giving me birth as a river

For delivering me as a forest

And making it a red bloody fertile center

Wet with the blood of the courageous

Mother my salute to you

For giving me birth

And throwing me amid these my people

-K.Siva reddy

Translation : Swatee Sripada
