Flaunt Your Tricolor
by Dr. Uma Asopa
Bookmark and Share
  Three for five rupees is not bad.
Small plastic flags,
clutched in little, grimy hands
flutter on the busy traffic island.

Between the red 'stop' and a green 'go'
do a quick bargain.
They offer you the best --
three in one -- colors, values
and fads -- saffron valor faded in time,
green revolution covered with grime,
white, a neutrality no more,
an embossed circle of redundant pride.

Fly the flags on your car.
Let them do, this day, a brisk business
Tomorrow they will find
their place in the trash.
