Jai Hind

Manoj Kumar’s defiant face
his forehead dripping with blood and sweat
rises as a phoenix
as patriotic songs play  over the radio.
Compelled by ingrained instincts
to share a few pictures of Indian pride
we march with our jawans  in spirit
from behind the laptop…
Exchanging virtual hugs, images
searching for that most apt quote
that would fetch the most number of likes
establish our patriotism once and for all
We all love our motherland
but we give only what we don’t want
yet march and demand all that
the poor Indian has never dreamed
Free are our thoughts but our actions are bound
Our freedom ends where our fears begin.
