(‘Mukt Hobe Priya Matribhumi’ – The Beloved Motherland Will Be Free was one of the favourite songs of the Naxalbari movement’s revolutionaries, and it best embodies the movement’s spirit of ‘people-first’ patriotism.)

The beloved motherland will be free –
That day is not far today!
Look, the red light of the red sun
Shines there beyond the eastern ocean!

Light spreading in all ten directions
Dispels the darkness of night,
The red rays of the sun
Will bathe the motherland in luminous freedom!

Workers and peasants, oppressed era after era,
Resoundingly sing the song of liberation!
The blood-soaked red flag, shining in glory
Flies high in the air and touches the sky!

We have to bring about that dawn of light
Bring about that day full of light
Put all your strength to the task comrade!

The beloved motherland will be free –
That day is not far today!
See, great Bharat’s people are great,
Bharat will belong to its people!
Great Bharat’s people are great,
Bharat will belong to its people!
