Happy Republic Day India :)
The land of historians, poets, riches and rivers,
Things that I was taught in school but now I dont remember,
The tricolour and the meaning of each line of the chakra and its symbol,
Kings and sons with numerous queens and monuments that talk about love rekindle.
Land where bollywood is not an influence of the culture instead is an ‘influent’,
And where people fight and argue with anybody on the street, but not with the government.
It is the land of Boom Shankar for some and for some its source of cheap shopping,
Where life goes on no matter who dies, even if there be floods or earthquakes,
Because it is the land of Gods, where ALL IS WELL, and good hope survives,
Where things are slowly changing- they now carry guns instead of knives!
My land is so much more than just one of corruption and poverty,
It is a place that has a ‘Heart’, which is its true Unique Identity,
For in this heartless, fast-paced fake world, its okay to be a little slow,
For the turtle always wins the race, and not all diamonds have to glow!
Its a land I call my ‘own’, and all the true love lies in its ‘dirt’,
For India taught me to ‘love’ and ‘respect’,and is My ‘Mother’ earth!

This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time.
Ahh! found it at last!
I always guessed that!
