The Tiger of Mysore*

Grit and gallantry personified
Verve and vitality exemplified

In this Tiger of Mysore
A lion-hearted son pure

Stabbed in the back was he
Betrayed by friends was he

With honour and dignity he embraced death
His kingdom he defended till his last breath

His words of bravery, his valiant call
Will forever remain in the minds of all:

“T’s better to live one day as a lion
Than to live a hundred as a jackal”
* Reference is to Tipu Sultan (1750-1799), a war hero of South India.
