Theme: Freedom

Vanchinathan: A Freedom Fighter

Deafening sounds of bullets

Pandemonium prevailed at

Tirunelveli Station’s bustling melee

The blood-soaked body of District Collector, Robert Ashe

Was lying in a pool of blood

On the railcar’s floor

Before the English Army arrested him

Vanchi Iyer shot himself dead.

Vanchi did the great task of awakening India

To fight against the British Rule

To gain freedom.

O! Citizens of India!

Be a social revolutionary

Like Vanchi Iyer

And fight against the tyranny of injustice.

Start a social revolution

To uplift the lot of the poor and the deprived;

To taste the fruit of

Liberty, equality and fraternity.
