India is a country
which could be called
beauty and the beast
It has both

India is a coin on both sides
Neither of which will ever meet
From palaces  to cardboard boxes
They have the haves and have nots.
The beggars and the begats
The workers with
The worker's  without work

Some children work for a pittance
From dawn til dusk
Clutching their pennies
They run to their folks
This  might be the only  money
That family has earned today
So food will  be eaten tonight
Filling empty stomaches

For those that have education
Maybe a doctor they become
Welcomed by the uk
Not returning home

From the  elegant dancers
to the lumbering elephants
spelling out one word

May the spirit that is India live on

Bharata hai ki bhavana para raha sakate hai?
