Independent - Poem by Udaya Pant


After more than six decades
I try to realise in retrospect
The plight of common man
Looking at his current prospect

The big question here is
Whither independence!
For his own welfare sake
He depended on himself
Before the independence!
Today too, I could see
He depends only on self

In spite of tall promises
Spending and more claims
By independent Government
For his small little needs
Of his meagre livelihood

In search of the of amenities
He feels betrayed, harassed
He is compelled and questions
Who says he is independent?
