Independent India

Independent India subservient once

Looked down upon as runts

Lives to breathe free air

Beneath the sunshine glare

 

Back then came the British

The patriarch of English

Drowning India in oppression

Slavery and suppression

Independent India

 

Despotism years after its inception

Cried out for India’s redemption

So emerged the freedom fighters

Of unity igniters

 

India’s freedom was earned

After several lives were burned

From murders to massacres

Partition to assassinators

 

Are we different, is the question

Suppression and depression

To money we’re submissive

To the poor we’re dismissive

Independent India

 

The middle class suffer too

Taxes and cashless lives brew

Amid the scorching heat of stress

Aggravating like an abscess

 

Ignorant to the cries

Deaf to the why’s

Authority has just one face

Rape and disgrace

 

Independent India still cries out

When will corruption checkout?

It has had a long-awaited stay

In our lands even today

 

Let us breathe once more

On cleaner sandy shore

Where corruption has no place

And double-dealing has no face

Independent India

 

Independent India must live free

Climb the knowledgeable tree

Away from the scandals of divide

And the carelessness of pride

 

Where LGBT will not only survive

But sustain self-belief and thrive

Where everyone is equal

And none anti-racial

 

We must promise to live independent

Grow splendid and resplendent

India is here to stay, to all

Happy Independence Day
