MY COUNTRY

We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! I go to place And greet a person, ’Salam’ And he replies, ‘Namaste’ We both mean the same, But our conduct was different.. We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! I look in the mirror With golden eyes and compliment My dress- salwar kameez am wearing.. But then I see a girl competing With me with blink and twinkle of- lehenga and veil We both have the same structure, But our attire was different.. We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! It was a relief to hear the ‘azaan’ In the brand new place.. And I asked where to face for ‘kabbah’ And she asked in return Have you seen any temple?! We both pray gods, But our gods are different.. We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! I was happy when the amber sun Showed its visage in the season of December I sung and danced.. The other girl too was happy and singing. I couldn’t comprehend her We both had the same mood and expression, But our language was different..

We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! We witnessed an accident on the road, Tear and blood and cry all around, I prayed to god and showed my sympathy, The man there was praying too. We both joined hands, But our way was different.. We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! This was queer day situation.. When the eid and diwali was on the same day I ate sewaiyyan and was given eidi My friend burned crackers and diyas We were celebrating the same day, But our festival different.. We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! The time was to represent our religion and culture.. He wore topi and pajama You wore dhoti and kurta The event was the same, But our belonging was different.. We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! But when we listen to our national song- jan gan man We all stand in the same position, Singing the the same lines ans verses.. Our heads held up high In pride nad devotion. We are from different states, But our county is the same. We are the world.. We are the Indians..!! The land Geeta and Qur’an The land of Sikhs and Christians The land of jalebi and rosogulla

The land of burqa and jeans.. We are the world.. We are the Indians..!!
