Tiger of Mysore

When the land of luxury was in shackles,

Blood spilt everywhere with countless battles.


When the lights went off, a cover from gore,

Here rose our hope, the fearless Tiger of Mysore.


Toppling the patriarchy, facing a whole nation,

He wanted his land back, filled with determination.


He saw his companions die in gore filled wars,

The winds have changed as the mighty tiger roars.


A king converted into a slave, prosperity turned to poverty,

The tiger remained a tiger, the dauntless Indian sovereignty.


His body demised, but his soul stayed alive,

This tiger is on the prowl and will never cease to thrive.
