The deep blue ocean shows her respect,
By touching your soft feet.
The dark green forest reflects their care,
By making your environment green & fit.
The big green mountains reiterates their faithfulness,
By giving you protection and safeguard your right.
Your tribes with a luxuriant smile are dancing fearlessly,
Under your loving care &strong might.
Your big extended family with hundreds of members,
Are holding your hands for extending their support.
Your beautiful coral islands are inviting the tourists.
With handful of big green coconuts.
The corals and shinning fishes by inviting people for scuba diving
Are really praiseworthy for conducting their duty.
The beautiful nature in and around you are depicting everywhere
That you have got a real magnificent beauty.
Oh! My dear Port Blair, being so beautiful and vibrant,
Why are you accepting your name as 'Black Water'?
Get up and raise your voice against your name,
For its change to be as 'Blue Water'
