“I want that India back” (New version)


Hi everybody! This poem will be going to rock India’s youth. I have recomposed this poem as I found the title great and inspiring.
Are you ready to hear this poem? Lets read…

The Golden Bird
with rich culture,
Widely heard
for its treasure,
Remembered for
Great kings & great saints,
who took birth
on that land,
That dignity,
That greatness,
Now,where is that?
“I want that India back”

Rulers and dynasties
came and went,
But no one
too long remained,
Found defeated
and turned away,
Against its unity
and “Satyagraha”,
That brotherhood,
That equality,
Can anyone return me that?
“I want that India back”

The relation
of teacher and student,
For which
famous was my land,
where youth
became inspiration,
And followed truth
away from corruption,
That zeal,
That spirit,
Youth can only return that,
“I want that India back”

About the Poem-

In this poem, I tried to describe the need and importance of that greatness of India in modern times. In the poem,as a leader I told people to awake and youth to return me that India back.
