(693)  Tandrar pare taruna tapana

On the other bank of slumber, a fresh sun
Dispelled the gloom of dark-moon's night.
Half-awake were the inarticulate ones;
Their eyes did open at that time.

The world embraced innovation;
With a novel complexion[1] all came into sight.
In new beauty and love arose the dictum:
This earth is our collective birthright.

Sleeping minds were wakened and galvanized;
The wanton self-interest got restrained.
Delirious pride was recognized;
No more was universal conscience far away.
