A Matter of Belonging

a poem by Poorvi

India is a country which is democratic,
But people here seem to be theocratic
They have no affection towards each other,
They always praise their own religion.
the theory of democracy
Teaches us to be the best in our duties,
To be the best citizens,
And to vote in the right elections.
But though of all this clatters
There is obviously a matter
that we belong to India.
From Vajpayee to Sindhiya,
Well we will all mix in your sand
Oh Holy mother! Oh pure land!
