A nation of billions unites
Prime minister bows

Home minister shoulders
Even Opposition rallies

Lady Defense minister hugs
Your brothers-in-arm oaths

IAF Special planes flew
Beaconed police escorts drove 

Real tears in cine stars eyes
Social media buzzes with netizens

Loads of flowers and wreaths
Roads flood with burning candles

Cricketers to educate your kids
Corporations to support families 

Contributions flow like a river
Unites hearts like never before

Loads of flowers and wreaths
Vande Mataram chanting youths

All leaders at your funeral
Mourning officials several

Twentyone gun salute
Sea of hearts to cremate

News channels make you shine
Sickulars and apologists whine

Tears flow like a flood
Knowing worth of your blood

A memorial in your name 
Forever to put them into shame

You are a national hero. 
The enemy is just a zero. 

He blew himself in search of heaven
You found it here among your brethren 

You left us tweaking our nerve
You made us wake up with resolve

As you fly to heaven through flames
A proud nation of billions unites
