Freedom - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

We achieved our freedom
Sixty seven years back
And, till to date we are free,
The rupee-value in 1947
Was equal to a dollar
Now, it's near to sixty three.

The white English men were forced
To quit India
Power came to the Black English man,
The wealth of the country
Stopped sailing to England
But it started flying to Swiss bank.

We remained as ‘stupid Indian'
With the freedom of speech
And turned into an intellectual fool,
Their children went abroad for study
And better future
Ours remained in outdated school.

    reality of life, rich are becoming richer
    they have means and connections but
    I am not giving up yet... I will make
    the best of anything.
