* A Solemn Day!

Rating: 2.9

Great Indian Republic Sixty
Sure going fast and hefty!
On this day - a solemn day
Services displayed might and strength
To all in the world - breadth and length!
To the pride of many and the pain of a few
First Lady unfurled the majestic hue!
Kazak Prez. witnessed all anew!
On Rajpath stood the Nation's pride
Ten widows and a mother proud!

A fine chronicle of a day of national importance (I Day- Independence Day? , R Dayi Republic Day?) A bit like Whitman.

Excellent work of art. Your sharp sense of observation, general awareness, attention to detail and of course creative packaging deserve a special mention here. While reading it, I imagined I was watching all the events you have described here on R-day in my mind's television. What about a repeat performance for the I-Day, too? Looking forward to it eagerly. Undoubtedly, a 10++++++++ here.
