Incredible India

Is 65 years Old? Yes, in the case of mortals.
But for the timeless Indian spirit that transcends past, present and future,
65 years is a mere instance but a significant instance at that.
Where there has been turbulence and malevolence
Where there has been revolution and evolution
Where there have been fights for blood and bread.
Are we a booming economy or an incomprehensible Dichotomy?
The answer is as confusing as the famous Indian nod.
We are brave, we are generous
We have come so far in a journey which is onerous.
We have grown and we have won.
Progress, prosperity and charity
But did anyone say clarity?
We have cultivated breeds of politicians without strains of leadership.
Amidst these chaos
My mother stands tall as ever, inspiring the world in her infinite wisdom
Of harmonizing contradictions, rising despite odds,
and drawing billions towards her for solace of the motherhood.
Incredible India indeed.
