Lets light a fire that burns up hate
Let it burn strong before it’s too late.
Hold onto change even if it’s small,
Keep the flame burning high – it might someday help us all.
Lets light the fire that burns up anger,
Work for a social structure that supports good behaviour.
Teach our children to be polite,
Be an example, so it becomes their way of life.
Care for the strays, as we’ve occupied their homes,
With our buildings, and parks and gardens and roads.
Let’s light up a fire inside our hearts,
Let it change our ways and lead us down the right path.
For social change.
And a Better India.
