I owe the blood to my father
‘Cause I have to pass it on the bloodline to the eternity.
I owe to my mother as well for the milk
She has fed me with all through these years.
I owe these all to my motherland for all I received so far
To make worth of life I am here in this world.
It’s more so for I have two mothers
If realized to care -
The one who gave me birth (Sikkim) and
The other who rears me up till this day (India)!
To repay my society whatever received all these years
I am so in hurry before it is too late and waiting till the end.
God’s providence is my inheritance and
His grace is forever
For everything is eternal in the nature
As the majestic and divine Kanchenjungha
Protecting and standing behind
to fear and care.
To the eternity
I owe you all!
