Hidden below the seats,
With an increased heartbeat.
Stones hit the bus with an ear-deafening sound,
And all of us were dumb-found.
The young nation where children were forced to run for there life,
Because of your nonsensical strife.
The young nation where a fictional character hurts more sentiments than the cries of many innocents.
The young nation with is the highest growing economy and an equally high growing antipathy.
The young nation with which attain its freedom in 1947,
Even so, our minds are beset with the query,
“Are we truly free?”
Author’s Note: On 24/01/2018, a group called Karni Sena (Sena means Army in English, Well, I don’t think they deserve to be called that because that will be shameful for our brave soldiers. So let’s just call them Karni), the self-proclaimed flag bearer of Rajputs, attacked a school-bus to protest a movie Padmavat which is based on a fictional character. I mean really?? It’s insanity. Yes, I am a proud Indian. But I am a concerned Indian. Have we really lost all the sanity? Have we already forgotten this incident? Is this the face of the young nation, we want to see or we just try to shove it under the rug.
