4. Here the night represents all sorrow the Sun God represents the hand that saves and clear dawn represent the bright future and calmness and the good things.


5. The poet wanted to sing about the achievements and progress made by the fellow citizens. He asks his motherland if she wished to hear about the dams and lakes, about steel mills or of the atomic age the mother asks him to sing songs about ‘Strikes’ and about the leaders who emerged after such revolutions.

So the poet asks her in a querulous voice if there were no songs which he could sing for her that he could sing whole heartedly, a song that is pure and which will remain in memory for a longtime.


6. According to poet, the future of our country can open up on mother’s forehead. It is like earth’s destiny. All the sorrows and sufferings ended and the new things and views will come and make the people happy. The sun God will protect the earth and saves all.

I envision of very bright future for India. An India where there all it people work hard for the development of the country. All Indians should be happy and live harmoniously with each other. There should be no discrimination all the

people should be treated as equal.
