Happy Freedom

Now that you are a free nation

It is up to you what you choose

The chaos, the famine, the massacre

Or the development, safety, the welfare

The unemployment, dirty politics, the corruption

Or the happiness, standard of living, the education

The fight at the borders or the peace within

Poking at other’s affairs or the self grooming

Yes, now you are a free human

It is up to you what you choose

You may be a traitor or a true patriot

You may curse your nation for every rot

You may criticize the policies, leaders, the nation

Or you may still ask for more and more freedom

You may put the caste, the language above the nation

You may betray your motherland in the name of religion

It is up to you what you choose

First keep yourself in others shoes

Aren’t you misusing your freedom

With overconfidence on your wisdom

Are there obvious signs of enslavement

The mental and intellectual entrapment

Just celebrate the holy spirit of freedom

It is your life, your character, your nation

unity in diversity

let the celebrations of yesteryear rewind

with the absolute power of people behind

genuine efforts to carry the ultimate legacy

with memories dipped in pride and ecstacy

a huge nation with the diversity unlimited

languages, cultures and heritage distributed

many countries embedded in a vast mainland

equal opportunities to all in their dreamland

a real symbol of tolerance, respect and peace

holding the destiny of mankind and its keys

spreading the power of Ayurveda and yoga

the magical chanting of mesmerizing sloka

a unique homeland in the lap of nature

a picture perfect silhouette of the future

making people in planet happy and gay

celebrating today its grand republic day

Oh Beauty

oh beauty, you are so agile

can’t think life without you for a while

your radiance is brightening the vast blue sky

you keep our flag flying high

oh beauty, your air superiority is awesome

you effortlessly make every man’s dream blossom

your smaller size makes the people go crazy

you sheer presence let the atmosphere go hazy

oh beauty, your maneuverability is unmatched

you fulfill all the missions unscratched

your features makes us fall in love again and again

you are the best example of beauty with brain

the reservation

After the efforts put for yesterday’s conversation

I will try to convey to you without any reservation

who knows tomorrow one may plan preservation

this should not build the unexpected frustration

let us honestly concentrate on today’s reservations

it is much hated word in many developed nations

in some countries it is the symbol of identification

but surely it doesn’t go well with new generation

reservation ignoring abilities is a social suffocation

if required it may be limited to the field of education

the reservation for tourism be the only application

which gives equal opportunity for entire population

reservation should be positivity without any negation

like the faith is nothing but trust without reservation

glorious past

Why we keep boasting of our glorious past?

our religious tolerance, our cultural heritage

our developed society, our booming economy

our diversity, our history, our spiritual heritage

we keep cursing the present and sit in a corner idle

we imprecate the current and stay irresponsible

we blaspheme out loud but do not perform or act

we condemn all around and stay most insensible

what we are is what is seen to the whole of world

no one can steal from us and even we can’t borrow

so why can’t we build ourselves a beautiful today

why can’t we stand and make a splendid tomorrow?

the freedom

freedom is so precious, never take it for granted

as you can raise your voice whenever you wanted

you can breathe much easier with a sense of pride

you can speak up your mind with your mouth wide

why does freedom means putting yourself first?

why does it orient you towards the bloody thirst

why people showcase their religious extremism

why some insane brutes tend to foster terrorism

the freedom does not teach you to act Willy-nilly

the liberty does not allow you to react hellish silly

let freedom be in heart and freedom be in mind

let freedom be in our thoughts that we unwind

religion, caste, creed, language let all be nursed

but whatever we do the nation should come first

Let the justice prevail

flThe recent gang rape of a woman and her daughter next to the national highway, the rape and burning of the lower half body of a girl, and a bunch of such incidents have raised grave concerns about the mental health of the contemporary society. This unfortunately has become a daily routine affair. Have we become so insensible to such grave news? Just, switch on the TV, watch for the news and you will see one or the other case of rape and sexual assault of women and innocent girls flashing across the news channels. These are the cases that get reported. However, it is astonishing that on equally daily basis we do not hear the judgement on such cases getting pronounced. The crime against women is not a recent issue. There are thousands of cases registered and the count is ticking on daily basis. So, even if we assume one year as the time taken by the courts to deliver their judgement, why are the judgements not following the same pattern with a backlog of one year? Logically and arithmetically, we should everyday hear these demons getting either life imprisonment or capital punishment. Have we ever pondered, why? Continue reading
