CHAKKA JAM
 
Stop
blockades
we are sons
Bharat Mata
farmers who seek justice for planting crops.
Agricultue laws must be repealed now
to give farmers
crop value
product
price.
 
 
Om Jai Ambe Gauri
(your eyes see wrath day and night)
 
How long
must we endure
this tortuous strain
in the heart of our appeal
for better sustenance
for produce
from Mother Earth
we offer to fill your coffer
tell me
tell the hungry and disenchanted
tilling soil night and day
now chanting for endless days
let not your mind
be weighed like rock
to give us hope for survival
Om Jai Ambe
