I Will Call It Independence When...

This is the most cliche question..has India found independence yet? In theory, yes we have, so many years ago...but in a country where newspapers are filled with hate crimes and rape cases, do we have the right to celebrate Independence Day? In my opinion, No!

I'll call it independence when a girl can walk fearlessly
I'll call it independence when a boy is allowed to cry
I'll call it independence when old age is cherished, not burdened
I'll call it independence when youth is the voice of the hour
I'll call it independence when animals don't represent communalism
And when colours don't start a war
I'll call it independence when politics is less dirty
And the public utilities cleaner

When ‘under the table’ is easy 
And PDA is wrong
When potholes can't be filled
And it's proven by a viral song!

Happy Independence day they say
How come their independence is different in so many ways?

We are the land of the brave
We are capable of so much more..
I'll call it independence when
The nation’s whisper becomes a roar!

What are your thoughts, do you think we are independent yet? Leave a comment, let us discuss maybe this could be our step towards a better India.
