The Price for IT

a poem by Sakthi Ravichandran

The huge price, we have given for it
To speak, to think, and to live
To heal my mother’s wounds and tears
My formers had given a valuable price
Her chain of slavery has been removed by
Their blood and tears in the prisons
Our free air is their reward to us for that
They paid their lives and souls
Our tricolour flag is flying in the sky
To invite them to this land once again
Our national anthem echoes even in the hall of heaven
To praise their work for this nation
In this day of Independence
We take the pledge to keep Her crown in this land
Up to the existence of the last INDIAN
