कविता (Kavita – Poem) : कलम, आज उनकी जय बोल (Kalam Aaj Unki Jai Bol)
कवि (Kavi – Poet) : रामधारी सिंह ‘दिनकर’ (Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’)

जला अस्थियां बारी-बारी
चिटकाई जिनमें चिंगारी,
जो चढ़ गये पुण्यवेदी पर
लिए बिना गर्दन का मोल।
कलम, आज उनकी जय बोल

by burning the remains again and again
ignited the spark in them
those who gave their lives
without thinking the value of neck
(in those days, hanging was the punishment for the freedom fighters)
Pen, hail them today

जो अगणित लघु दीप हमारे
तूफानों में एक किनारे,
जल-जलाकर बुझ गए किसी दिन
मांगा नहीं स्नेह मुंह खोल।
कलम, आज उनकी जय बोल

those numerous little lamps of ours
a shore in the storms
have extinguished one day by burning out
have not asked for enough affection
pen, hail them today

पीकर जिनकी लाल शिखाएं
उगल रही सौ लपट दिशाएं,
जिनके सिंहनाद से सहमी
धरती रही अभी तक डोल।
कलम, आज उनकी जय बोल

have drunk the red branches of those
are spilling hundred of directions of flames
are disturbed from whose war cry
the earth is still moving
pen, hail them today

अंधा चकाचौंध का मारा
क्या जाने इतिहास बेचारा,
साखी हैं उनकी महिमा के
सूर्य चन्द्र भूगोल खगोल।
कलम, आज उनकी जय बोल

the blind is dazzled
what does the unfortunate knows about history
witness of their glory are
Sun, Moon, geography, and astrology
pen, hail them today
