'Kiss Of Love', Marine Drive, Kochi
Poem by Denvor fernandez
If there is no freedom to kiss,
What is Freedom?
If there is no freedom to love,
What is freedom?
God gave us lips to kiss,
But the Evil One uses it to shout slogans
Against Kisses, against Love.
On 15, August 1947, India became free.
But, that was only political freedom.
Cultural fundamentalists saw to that
That an Indian does not enjoy personal freedom.
Caste system, Dowry, Sati, Child marriage and poverty
Was their religion.
They used 'dead culture' as their weapon
And called themselves: The Policemen of Morals.
'Freedom of Expression' and 'Freedom of Speech'
Were the phrases they hated.
On 02, November 2014, The freedom fighters of the
twenty-first century, marched towards Marine Drive
for India, for our personal freedom.
The old freedom was only political, But Now,
We dreamed to be really Free, truly Free.
They fought, not with anger, hatred or violence
As the usual protesters do,
But with Love;
But with Kisses.
Then the cultural fundamentalists came,
With their filthy words,
With the Evil of Violence,
With 'dead culture'.
With the Evil One, The Demons, they came.
They revolted against Love.
They revolted against the very essence that makes us human.
All the freedom loving people cried:
'God save Kerala! '
But Love works in strange ways.
It may not succeed in a conservative society,
Its success is in the Souls of Humanity.
The Soul of Love sees God, Kisses God,
And makes love to God.
O you freedom fighters, Don't fear!
People may scorn at you.
But the Divine is with you...
You are Jesus, Buddha and Krishna.
You are One with them.
You have the 'Dil'.
Like Jesus and Gandhi was arrested,
You were also arrested.
But, you were arrested for Truth and Freedom,
Let India become a country were you have freedom to kiss.
Don't fear people of India.
Kiss in public and fight for Love.
Kiss where ever you are.
Let us be free...
'Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my
