Independence And Freedom Is Truly A Question

Independence And Freedom Is Truly A Question

2 mins
123


It has been 74 years that we have been saluting and celebrating 

The martyrs who lost their lives fighting for freedom. 

But are we really free? 


Even today, we wakeup reading the news 

About women being raped, 

About communal disputes, political wars, 

Religious conflicts and caste discrimination

So are we really free? 


We sure are free from the slavery and bondage of other Rulers,

However, We are surrounded by darkness in the form of humanity. 

We are fighting every single day for Freedom. 

The so-called protectors are the one's who are set out to harm us. 


Women are being Harassed, verbally, 

Physically, socially, emotionally. 

Openly Abused on social platforms in the name of nationalism. 

They are being Objectified day in and day out, 

Called all sorts of names. 


Unfortunately, there are also women, 

Who pretend to be troubled just for the sake of fame and attention! 

Which tends to the genuine one's being ignored 

And even though their cries are loud, they're not heard.


At times also wrongly suppressed 

And blinded by the power of money and connections. 

All because of a few Indecent, 

Vulgar, disrespectful & greedy men, 

The entire male gender is being questioned. 

We as mere citizens are doing all that we can to obtain justice, 

But we are ignored.

The higher authorities use their power 

For the benefits of their own selfishness and corruption, 

And every time someone raises their voice against it, 

They're threatened by power of money or connects! 


Are we really free and independent? 

What is the use of celebrating Independence day,

When we are still faced with Injustice & cruelty 

All from our own "Patriotic" people. 


 Nevertheless, I do Love my Home, my Country, 

For all the Diversity, Cultures, traditions and Colourful festivities; 

But It's sad, that all of this greatness, at times, 

Is shadowed behind the overpowering darkness.
