Poor India's Poor Daughter Going To Read

Poor India's poor daughter
Going to read
In a poor school,
A girl from the hamlet
In a simple dress
Going to school
With the slate and the lime pencil
And the torn bag.
India's poor and rare daughter,
Priceless girl-child,
Neglected and ignored for long,
The UNICEF's adopted daughter,
Going to school poorly,
But simply,
A girl so complacent and content,
Taking food
After feeding her father and brother,
Oh, the daughter of India,
The neglected and ignored girl child of India!
