One little girl with a smile on her face
Comes to us with a promise of taste
Her products are the best with milk as the base
It’s AMUL- the taste of INDIA

Frock with polka dots is her trade mark dress
Red on white adds more beauty, no way less
She stands for true taste &truth
It’s AMUL-the taste of INDIA

Girl in the polka dress serves all &reminds all
About best butter, cheese, ice creams &milk shakes
Like a full moon she shines in hearts of INDIANS
It’s AMUL-the taste of INDIA.

 (This is prepared for poetry soup’s Polka dots poetry contest)
