Ballad of People


In the base of Himalayas, one day,
Where splendid tea gardens lay,
Migrant labourers, workers and peasantry
Repulsed landlords in the village of Naxalbari

The Mundas and Santhals united
Mass protests ensued
Women and children killed
In police firing in Naxalbari

But the struggle did not die
Despite rulers’ outcry
From Shingur to Niamgiri
Continued the legacy of Naxalbari

From a small village revolt
Capitalists felt the fury of thunderbolt
Pronounced the biggest threat to internal  security
The ideology inspired by Naxalbari

Fifty springs have passed
Number of people martyred
But, till democratic equality is not attained
Future torch – bearer is Naxalbari
