Children smiling and faces lit in the face of adversity,
oblivious to the pain of hunger and poverty.
Faces, painted in different colors and hues,
expressing different facets of India.
A day where class, caste, sex or race are blended into one identity,
one nation, free from human prejudices,
United by emotions raging high in the blood,
eyes twinkling with pride and shining stars sparkling in the mind and soul,
a feeling of pride.
Hugging each other and swaying to the beats of patriotic and traditional songs,
we blend in the rich legacy and cultural history of our roots.
Happy Republic Day, folks
