Independence Day
by Meenakshi Madhur
Bookmark and Share
  Let us rejoice
for 56 years ago
on this day
our motherland
was freed
from the bondage
of aggression
and oppression.

Recall
those oppressive
and aggressive
rulers who
built an empire
of their own
by killing the
heart, soul
and dignity of
the people ?

Recall
the great spirited
minds of our leaders
who toiled hard with
their blood and sweat
and freed this country
from the rule of
those tyrants ?

Reflect
on the conditions
of the country today
and what do we see?
We see the oppression
and aggression
continues to this day
only this time
at the hands of
people of our own.
We see the oppressors
continue to kill
the heart, soul and dignity of
common man, woman and
even child and build an
empire of their own.


Let us then resolve
on this day,
to unite our great spirited
thoughts and minds
and create a force
(very similar to the ones
that freed us of foreign
oppressors then)
to crush the
tyrants of today
and free the
millions who have
yet to taste the
freedom that we
rejoice today.
