  1. In the poem “The Song of India,” the speaker contemplates what he should sing for his motherland, whether to praise the Himalayas, its bounty, or the season of all three sides. Or it could be about the beggars and lepers who frequent his streets or the filthy surroundings. Similarly, the debates whether to sing about the country’s rich cultural legacy or the freedom warriors who risked their lives for the country.

    The Mother replies that she would sing a song about those who are suffering because of their ignorance; she would sing about the defenseless infant. Despite this, the speaker inquires as to what to sing, assuming it is his responsibility.

    He wonders if he should sing about our country’s progress once more. According to the speaker, our mother India must write our destiny’s book, erasing all of our sorrows.
