The poem Amitabh Bachchan shared roughly translated to, ‘Know this, whenever the pride and self-respect of our Nation is challenged; then let our voice of strength be in decibels loud; from the Himalayas to the Oceans below in such force, that the ground doth shake and there be cracks in the skies above.’
This translation was shared by Amitabh Bachchan himself as he penned down a subtle message in the caption. Towards the end, Amitabh Bachchan wrote the words "Fight India Fight" in capitals to add special emphasis.
