A victory flag will fly with democracy


There are so many falling roots in our banyan tree
We are the younger roots among these ones;

If these roots are anchored in the land,
it is an array of strengthening the
principal root of that tree;

Then - a victory flag will fly
Over the root that forms an array;

On top of it - frontal area of the flag -
There will be three thilaks - these are
FREEDOM
DEMOCRACY
SOCIALISM.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
The poem 'A victory flag will fly with democracy' is a translation of a tamil poem.

எங்கள் ஆலமரத்தில் எத்தனையோ விழுதுகள்
அவற்றில் இளைய விழுதுகள் நாங்கள்
இந்த விழுதுகள் வேர் ­பிடித்துவிட்டா­ல்
ஆணிவேரைப் பலப்படுத்தும் அணி வகுப்பாகும்
அப்போது - இந்த விழுதுக் கொடி மீது ஒரு
வெற்றிக் கொடி பறக்கும்
அதன் நெற்றியில் மூன்று பொட்டிருக்கும். அவை
சுதந்திரம்
ஜனநாயகம்
சோஷலிசம்.

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
