The speaker here is the India or Mother India who is personified as the mother of all those children. As mother, India tells the world that she has never denied anything to them. She even gave her priceless sons to them which were though inseparable from her. She weeps for the loss inflicted on her by the world. Her sons were made to fight on foreign lands who died there and were buried in groups. Thus the victory is nothing for her because she is seeing beyond it i.e. the blood and the pain of the soldiers. She also feels proud that she has given birth to such brave and courageous sons who fought fearlessly and sacrificed their lives. In the end she says that when peace will be restored and everything will be normal, her sons, their contributions and sacrifices will be remembered by the people.
