Tales of New India
Tales of New India
The People Of New India,
After 69 years of growing together,
Snatching our rights from the british ruler,
Some questions chew my mind still today.
Have we actually been able to find?
To find our rights to live by our own,
To acquire the humanic qualities in our bones,
To break the bars of "divide & rule",
To smash the barricades making us fool,
To diminish the horizon of caste ,creed & religion,
To apply the pesticides of the pests living in gender violence;
We have to rewind & think twice.
Suppressing our thoughts are no less than a crime,
Have we been free from brutalizing girl fetus?
I can visualize silent postures hiding faces.
Everyone is given right of choosing their careers,
Radiant futures as artists, dancers,writers,cricketers & footballers;
Then why to be pressurized to remain,
In the circles of scientists, doctors & engineers?
My questions are increasing like a igniting fire,
& for answering them people should be hired.
Fake certificates & bribed admission,
In govt jobs, schools & colleges;
With multiple wounds, honesty cries & hide its vision.
Farmers still hope & sow the crop seeds,
Hoping for their growth & at last attempt suicide.
Brave soul die fighting for the pride of our soil,
None pays a heed to their tales engaging minds in coil.
Maybe we are dressed as new indians,
But our mentality is stuck in the alleys of wrong turns.
Maybe we have the rights to put on attires of our comfort,
Still a girl to be humiliated as whore or molested in front naked eyes.
Body shaming,color discrimination & bullying set a new trend of failure,
Suicides at a high rate proves wounded humanity to never be cured.
Education to be provided among all,
Justice surrender seeing child workers in tea stalls.
Maybe some regulations & laws has been established,
For the women of nation from getting dehumanized.
Still, the extinguished street lights arise the fear,
If our flesh get preyed by monsters layer by layer;
And the shout of a premature girl flies in air from far,
Laws can’t protect her from marrying earlier.
Slogans of digitalization spread like epidemic,
& the increasing no of inhumane barbarism tells a lot ,
Of misusing the social media platforms & websites.
Riches are enjoying lavish lifestyle due to enormous money,
Wrapped in torn blankets, roadsiders finding it tough to make a meal a day!
Are we still able to utilize the rights of democracy?
Or ,getting misguided in the name of voting polls?
Aren't we erroneous in giving our future to some wrong ministry?
God knows when the evil policies will be ceased.
Love should be blind, & laws're legitimated;
Souls of same gender, still to be criticized.
So many questions ,still to answered;
So many puzzles ,still to be solved;
Series of mistakes ,still to be corrected;
Hands on hands ,we have to come together,
Create a real india free from any lease.
We are the people, & we have guts in our veins,
To bring revolution, resilience ,rejuvenation & change.
Till then, we need the efforts at least to inject the seeds,
Of what does the actual republic day means?
