Talkin’ India

India has a role to play in the world
free from corruption, injustice and suppression,
to be an example for the earth and man
of democracy and politics that can.

Today it is rich and poor at once
standing on the crossroads of new endeavors
where demons of the past are no longer there
but the vision of a continental green tomorrow.

Each nation carries a future dream
and India can make it real:
The industries of renewable energy,
the green revolution of freedom and peace,

ecology and economy in harmony
with a world of fair wages and good jobs,
a solar continent with no radioactivity
and cars that are run by electricity,

horizontal farming and vertical farming
together creating green cities of tomorrow,
wind and water and tidal energies
overcoming food and energy fears.

India has a role to play in the world
with clean water and air and wildlife forests,
with pollution control and smart energy consumption
and a democracy showing what it wants.

India has a role to play in the world
free from corruption, injustice and suppression,
to be an example for the earth and man
of democracy and politics that can.

  1. The poet has a great faith on India,the largest democracy in the world;
    And rightly so!
    He’s not alone in envisioning a corrupt -free nation, setting an example to emulate by other countries of the world!
    His idea behind the line-
    Ecology and economy in harmony-serves to convey ‘the total progression of the country ‘
    without jeopardizing the other!
    What else can a nation aspire for?
    The day when India becomes a perfect role model is most welcome!
