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

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

the love for the nation

the horrifying sound of the traitors

the grisly appeal of the infiltrators

the diplomatic stand of politicians

the demolitions, the oppositions

all these and much more drama

should never dampen your spirit

your unconditional love for country

should never get stuck to any limit

no love is greater than that for the nation

that is the only key for human salvation

rise high, ride fast, quicken your aspirations

sharpen your thoughts, live up to expectations

for you have only one life to live

sacrifice it if at all you can give

for you are because humanity is

you are because the country is
