Touch the Sky with Glory

Touch the Sky with Glory

1 min 393 1 min 393

Every sunrise illuminates the sky

Your arena, with Mother India's head held high

For her loyal children guard the height

The saga of devotion, will and might 

You fly; you fight; you win

But this is just where the story begins


In 1933, rose Air Marshal Subroto

A visionary person, a legendary motto

For all our airmen striving today

And the loyalty that they portray

Is unmatched till date

With new hurdles being conquered day-by-day


Adorning the Rafale, Sukhoi and Jaguars

Outshining, glorious stars

Who dwell, to secure the other livings

Instilled with abundant patriotic feelings


Operation Vijay, Meghdoot and Cactus

At this what immediately strikes us

Are names like Nirmal Sekhon and Commander Abhinandan

 Brave hearts, with a forever adored story

Mother India’s pride, for truly they have

Touched the sky with glory


 Air Marshal, Group Captain or Flight Lieutenant

To the motherland, all are augments

It is never the ranks or the stars

Neither the count of victorious wars

But rather patriotism and commitment

That runs in the veins of all airmen


Away from home, a 24/7 duty

All 365 days a year, with the agenda of service only

It not a call from work but from the nation

And isn't Mother India’s service more pleasing than a vacation?


Salute to you; your duty; your love

For this country and as you soar high above

The nation secure, without a worry

For it believes and knows that the Indian Air Force

Has touched the sky with glory...
