Pravin is a ‘young’ groom (well, young at heart & in spirit) who arrived in Australia to find his new bride and life’s happiness. He loves this country and wrote this poem to express his gratitude.

A land – where Mother Nature
Has laid out her heart for you,
And calls you out, to share her wealth,
And harks, to bring the best in you.
Where eyes do smile, and hearts do care,
Where every man is treated fair,
Where people of lands – far and near
Are welcomed, and given a fair share.
Your colour of skin, or your native land,
Or the God – to whom you bow your head,
It matters none, if with love in heart,
With those in need, you share your bread.
And raise your hand – not to smite,
But for someone to help – along the road,
And share the joys of life with all,
So help me ever, in this land O Lord!
With pride and love, in my heart I say,
For this land I share, with all of ya,
To the angels above, I call out loud,
Thank the Lord, for Australia!
