We have crossed the journey of 65 years
We were liberated and now on the hilt to be next superpower
Worldwide bows to our culture and believe we are the best
Expeditious in rat race we parted with basic humility and peace behind
It is time to wake up and assess ourselves for the REST
We have erected the highest skyscrapers in smallest of towns
In the process torn apart the exquisiteness of scenic beauty spread around
We are proud to have the richest capitalist throughout the world
They boast off to own the costliest edifice in the hub of slum
Do they ever think of millions homeless sleeping on same road every night?
We were and will forever be the land of splendid riches and fortunes
Though opponents tried to plunder us in their realm for years
I believe the trace of plundering is left in our ministers today
Land of farmers’ feel deep shame to still comprise millions unfed every day
Can we do something for millions still living below the poverty line?
We talk heaven on earth is only here and will nowhere to be found
Just go once and look at the scars on soul of J&K so profound
Its ironical heaven on earth doesn’t sleep peacefully even for a day
I pay homage and salute to my brave soldiers who fight to protect it everyday
Are our ministers serious to solve the canny spread around?
We take pride to say NASA has utmost of Indian brains
We stand tall to talk about the highest % of educated youth as par toll
It is time we sneak a peek in the pathetic education system we follow
I deny the need of corrosive reservation system against grades
Have ministers justified the future after education for youth to chase?
We carry the "Golden Bird" title in our crown
It’s ironical to see common people suffer for normal daily chores unbound
Farmers who feed the billions are still deprived of basic amenities
My heart is dismayed to see the number of suicides escalating
What kind of development ministers boast on their sleeves?
Though we talk about independence today as untrue and hollow as true
It is one more D-day to sing patriotic songs and forget what we go through
Till we dig our souls to pay attention and not just blindly follow
The grim issues deep rooted in our system that for years we have ingest
Time for Indian youth to get up and solve without any hesitation
Its time not INDIA but every INDIAN feel the heat of liberation!!!- TIME TO CHANGE INDIA
