Meaning: All over the land, you've kindled this longing for freedom and self-rule,
I will ensure that you are imprisoned and made to feel the pain

You chanted "Vande Maataram" in your gatherings, treating us with contempt,
You ran ships manned by our people, to take our wealth

You revealed the truth to the cowardly public, and flaunted the laws
You preached bravery in the face of death, to the poor masses

You turned us from trusting slaves, into human beings, our innocence lost
You turned us from our contentment, sparking new desires and wants

You incited those who were lost in service alone, and sought their praise
You showed them very many ways to earn a living, doing anything and everything

You sowed the seeds of self-government all over this land, with your deeds,
Could a hare do the work that a lion once did, with your support?

I will proclaim all this, and shame your soul into sadness, thus destroy it,
Who can gainsay any of this? I will imprison you, and avenge every one here
