Feelings on Our Independence Day

Today 15th August, we are celebrating The 67th Independence day of India. My country Has yet to witness the glimpse Of an enchanting flowering season, When winds would be flowing On the rhythms of changing scenes And Birds and Butterflies Would show their alluring dances To every singing and rejoicing souls with wings. 01 I want to celebrate my independence day And I am trying to bring a smile On my gloomy face But, how can I be cheerful and Relish the celebrations When the freedom of my country is in peril And perennial forces surrounding us Are trying to distract and destroy The peace and prosperity Of a developing nation. 02 How long, We can keep on watching And waiting and believing O’ Dream makers Your false promises of dreams Of a colorful and bright future, When a large number of dream makers Are in the drowning deep waters Of corrupt practices And some even of crimes Of serious nature. 03 Many still want to again secure Their vote banks by dividing people On caste and religion basis Even at the cost of the security Of the nation And at the cost of the forced drifting Of innocent inhabitants Who have left their ancestral homes In search of peace and a shelter Away from their dream place and homes and companions. 04 Many such dream makers Are standing knee deep In the intoxicating river of greed And are carving for For more and more endless wealth, For more power with arms and ammunitions’ And above all a bigger chair From where they can create Nonsense for the nation. 05 Some dream makers For their gains and selfish interest Choose many such persons Who are down to earth corrupt With deep colors and marks On their hands and Even on their faces too Which often proves them As worst criminals. 06 What a pity it is for a nation That has a mighty and strong army And a huge young generation Watching and looking helplessly The ongoing regular game of enemies On its borders And the game of enemies Who are trying to harm my country Within the land, in our own borders. 07 Both the outer and inner enemies Are constantly busy in planning And in creating Infiltration and war like scenes Created by the trained hate mongers As they work in disguise Of a peaceful citizen and Even sometimes In the disguise of a politician. 08 The enemy surrounding the nation Believes in snatching Peace not only of my country And of the Himalayas But even of the entire earth And believes in lies and In violence and destruction Of every kind As their masters wishes to Conquer the earth Not by spreading Love and Peace Like Buddha and Jesus But by Hate and violence At the cost of every possible destruction Of humans and even of Nature. 09 But these countries And the war mongers, who stands on the Foundation of falsehood and cheating Do not understand the strength And courage of our masses and nation and The moral strength and courage of our Armed forces Which is capable to give them A lesson, If some day it would be Necessary for saving the sovereignty Of this peace loving Nation. 10 Ravindra Kanpur India 15th Aug. 2013

    Dear Ravindra, what challenges your country has faced! I fear for the safety and future of your people. Perhaps if those who incite war and devastation could read this, they would see the error of their ways. Always a pleasure to hear from you! Love, Carolyn

    wow, this is a very powerful one and I feel bad for you that you have so many problems there. America is getting to be this way too with so much dissension. Wish I knew a little more about your country to understand the parts where you are talking about the enemy threatening your country.

    Oh yes and you have created the perfect poem to illustrate the realities of today, those wherever we may be those with the power feel it is necessary to exploit the rest of us...

    A very nice write Ravindra, a deep look into some of the realities we neglect to see in our everyday lives. Greed, hate and violence can bring the down fall of this earth. You really put a lot of heart into this piece. A saddened pleasure to read such a splendid write. Keep up the great work my friend. :o)

    There are lesson to be learned, and this epic poem, gives me much to ponder with a powerful message. It must have taken much thought, courage, and heart to write such an inspirational piece. A keeper for all who love their country.

    Thanks Carrie for all your kind and encouraging words coming from the depths of your heart. Such words from friends and well wishers always give us strength in expressing what we often feel and want to convey as our contribution in at least getting it checked, if not stopping "what is extremely bad and not good for your nation"

    Thanks PD my friend. I am sorry I was about to turn the pages of your amazing new Poems but somehow it got delayed for one or the other reasons. Yours words are always so striking with a depth of their own that one can resist not going through them. Thank you once again for your precious comments on my Song my friend. More on your page..Ravindra

    WOW! I have never read any of your poems, but I'm glad I read this one. We should all be happy and be able to celebrate our Independance Day, but sometimes that is not possible, when the dream makers as you called them do not help. I knew a lot of pople from India and a few of them were very good friends. Thanks for sharing this with us. Maybe one day things will change.... Lucilla
