Buy a Flag Bring Home India Today

15th August
60th Independence Day
Today.
Will last for a day
Like a drop of tear on
Cheek of a nation
Will soon fade away
Each year it comes
To take stock
In shock it moves away
Hindi blaring songs
Aye Mere Watan ke Logon
Mere Desh ki Dharti
Rang de Basanti
Evergreen songs that play away
Politicians hoisting the flag
Jai Hind nothing more to say
Yes from a shanty they have come a long way
400 crores in a few years collected over the years
What a pay rest stashed in a Swiss Bank
By the havala racketeers every day
The child selling our countries Flag
Wakes us from our stupor
Yes its truly Independance Day
Holding our Pride delicately at Traffic signals
Outside the St Peters Church with a grin and smile
They say buy a flag bring home India Today..
