The Song Celestial and Sir Edwin Arnold !

Another great poet was Sir Edwin Arnold. He was Knight Commander of the British Empire. He fell in love with India. He translated the Geetha into English poem. 

In his foreword to the " Song Celestial ( Geetha ) ", he hails both India and England !

This is a discourse between
Prince Arjun and the Supreme
In the form of Lord Krishna 

So have I writ its wisdom here,
Its hidden Mystery,
For England O our India,
As dear to me as She !
