If you're not there, the day would be 30th February
If you're not there, capital of Kolkata would be Ballygunge Phari

If you're not there, Americans would eat bhaji pao
If you're not there, Eminem would sing 'Amake amar moto thakte dao'

If you're not there, Tom Cruise would wear lungi and vest
If you're not there, even Idli would be awesome to taste

If you're not there, Chetan Bhagat would write Bhagawat Gita

I felt obligated to read this poem because the title told me I wouldn't understand it, as I am not Indian or Bengali. And it is true that many of the names and references certainly escaped me, but I feel like I still understand the poem. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to me to be about how one thing, one person can change everything. It's strange, I almost felt like the 'you' you're speaking of was America, because you reference a lot of American things in the poem and then state how they would be different if 'you' were not there. One quick grammatical note: 'Your' is the possessive form of you, you're is the contracted form of 'you' and 'are.' You're using the incorrect form.
