Baby Nation - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

We are baby nation
Just new for international relation
We have not gained it all of sudden
We have golden past and heritage even

It speaks about ancient civilization
One of well known and history’s revelations
It has dated back thousands of years old
Some of the period is considered golden

History is witness
We had critical period to face
We had slavery period and remained under yoke
“India was known as golden bird” now it is joked

Many leaders waged struggle for freedom
They had foresight and wisdom
We failed to capitalize on their advice
Now it stands only on hollow promises

Sixty years of independence is not less
We should have matured on the face
Nation should have been put before self interest
That was the real aim and considered as best

Even disruptive forces are in driver’s seat
We can still resolve and beat
Progress and prosperity is not one day’s job
Let us restore glory and assure people that they are not robbed

    Mr Hasmukh Bhai,

    We are baby nation. You are correct to some extent. Because there is not much difference between a baby and an old man. You have already stated it by referring to our glorious past. It's past glory and present with vainglory. What else can we call exploring mars when crores of people live under the poverty line? .
