Post-Independent India - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
A populous country neglected stays!
Decades six have sped off since freedom -days;
Democracy remains its vital base;
Integrity's un-reinforced always!
A billion people's talent stays as such;
No leader has given the Midas touch;
Ignored is health of common people much;
Their future lies in doldrums, none to vouch!
Across the sacred soil, run rivers great;
Yet, internecine war-fares don't abate;
A few divide citizens by speech-hate!
A love of fellow-men misses till date!
Despite the many problems, India has done well;
Good leaders must soon toll the progress-bell;
A wizened heart must remove all pell-mell;
Heaven should come alive amidst the hell!
Let patriotic feelings afill hearts;
Let love replace the hatred/pride like darts;
Let peace prevail in every state, all parts;
Let loving people live longer like arts!
Jai Hind! Jai Bharat!
