It is just the color of my passport, that has changed from blue to red. As if a part of me has been lost in the distant horizon.
The color of my skin cannot change It is the same heart that beats in me The Indian National Anthem does engage me, automatically into the attention mode And I stand at ease and think How does the color of the passport change?
The ocean of emotions is charged The flight of Icarus is unbridled The wax will melt and wings burn Bang! On the rough surface of the earth! Sky splattered with blood. Why does the color of the sky burn and change? How does the color of the passport change?
Friends have termed me a traitor For me they have anger and jeers. My explanations, my tears have fallen on the deaf ears. Why does the behavior of friends change? How does the color of the passport change?
Leaving Jagraon for Ludhiana; Is that not treason with the village? Shifting from Ludhiana to Mumbai Could well be termed as treason with the town. Migration from Mumbai to London Changes all the love and support Thus changes the color of the passport!
