In this world, from where does the word father come?
The one who destroys, the one who saves
He is the one whom we call Shiva
He is the God of our mother,
He is our father.
Who works day and night for us
Sacrificing his life for others
He had first come to this earth
He is oldest in our family path
His blessings are always for us
He fulfils all our wishes
We should love and respect him
We should be thankful to him.
