REPUBLIC DAY~by Indira Sadanandan


 

 

REPUBLIC DAY

It is time to think about my country,
Sixty four years of post independent India
We walked on
Days,months and years.
Those who brought freedom to us now are not with us
The yoke of slavery is no more on our shoulders.
Our feet are free from fetters
But we have become slaves of our mind
We don’t know what to choose and what to discard
We accept whatever is stretched to our hands
Again India, wearing ornamental shawl
Is slanting its entire being
On the shoulders of colonisation
Dedicating our future on it’s feet.
It is time to think about what the jointly develop
Defence Projects allowing US firms to sell
Nuclear reactors to India are meant for.
It is time to think about our country
Today is the day of Republic India.
