I have a question.
To all my friends out there,
Posting our national flag over their instagram and Snapchat feeds,
To all my beloved relatives,
Who are proudly sharing the long patriotic messages over the whatsapp groups.
How many of you exactly have actually saluted our tricolor.
Sang the national anthem with all your heart.
Remembered the struggles of the mytryls,
And the deaths of the uncountable innocents,
Wh￼o marked our independence with their blood.
I want to ask that how many of you, exactly wish to serve our nation with pride,
And not just by uniform,
But by humanity,
For the unnoticed and the unprivileged.
I want to know,
From each and every single person out there,
What exactly independence mean to you?
What does it feel to shoutout “HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY”?
Does this come from the very depth of your heart,
Or is it filtered according the social media you are on,
Or may be it is also pretentious like most of the things today.
Or may be we don’t have to answer this, rather need realise by our selfs.
