  • Text: Dans le courant de mois d'octobre 1914 les Hindous sont venus en France combattre les Prussiens. / Les Hindous sont guerriers étonnants, ils ignorent la peur ou la retraite, ils sont comme des tigres / dans la nuit, ils glissent pareils à des felins et frappent à coup sûr. / Les Hindous sont très pieux, ils n'oublient jamais leur culte. A la fin du combat, pendant que les / derniers coups de canons ébranlent l'air, les lanciers du Bengale commencent leur prière.
