Wishing Happy 46th Independence Celebrations

JULIUS JETHRO

Papua New Guinea 
A Nation of thousand tribes 
A nation of nations 
United Papua New Guinea 

In Unity, a nation is built 
With trust, late Sir Grand Chief was entrusted 
To take this land from Colonizers 
And name it the Beloved Papua New Guinea 
So these children can call it the home 
Even in his absence, He is watching its children dancing, 
Singing Nation’s Anthem with PASSION, DIGNITY and PRIDE 
“We are Papua New Guinea!” 
“We are Independent and We Are Free!”
 
Let the voice of thousands tribes be heard 
Singing songs, dancing and celebrating 
As we miss the dear voice of Sana on this golden day for the first time 

He is listening! 
As we chuntering in melody 
Thanking God and His eminence wisdom He gave to 
Our Founding Fathers 

From the highland to the lowlands 
Let the voice of oneness be heard 
And to the coastal and islands 
In solidarity we are one nation, one country, one people 

One more time again 
We are growing older, wiser and stronger 
In Nationhood 

Come ye the Kumul 
Let it fly higher, higher than it was 
Higher above the Mountain tops 
Show to the nations, we are one people, one country 
And shout to the world, 
We are Papua New Guinea! 

Happy 46th Birthday Papua New Guinea!

Ples Singsing is envisioned to be a new platform for Papua Niuginian expressions of creativity, ingenuity and originality in art and culture. We deliberately highlight these two very broad themes as they can encompass the diverse subjects, from technology, medicine and architecture to linguistics, music, fishing, gardening et cetera. Papua Niuginian ways of thinking, living, believing, communicating, dying and so on can cover the gamut of academic, journalistic or opinionated writing and we believe that unless we give ourselves a platform to talk about and discuss these things in an open, free and non-exclusively academic space that they may remain the fodder for academics, journalists and other types of writers alone. New social media platforms have given every individual a personal space to share their feelings and ideas openly, sometimes without immediate censure. The Ples Singsing writer’s blog would like to provide another more structured platform for Papua Niuginian expressions in written, visual and audio formats while also providing some regulation of the type and content of materials to be shared publicly.
