You Cast Your Spell
I Burn In Hell
I Wish You Well
You Toll The Bell
Nay, Not The Bell
You Toll My Knell
I Bare My Soul
You Dig A Hole
I Brace For Falls
To Scale Your Wall
And While I Climb
My Feet They Slip
I Lick My Wounds
My Gash I Grip
And Though Submissive
To My Fate
In Earnest Hope
For Thee I Wait..

India celebrates her 63rd Independence Day today. On this very day, 63 years ago, our erstwhile British colonists left us and our neighbour to settle scores with each other. Our forefathers decided we had finally gotten our freedom on that day.
Our generation, however, feels we're still in chains. We have yet to get freedom. The oppressors might be in a different garb and form, but they're still very much there. We're still in bondage, but we live in denial.
Today's India wants FREEDOM...
...high electricity bills
...cockroaches & flies
...sweat & body-odour
...reservations, hell yeah!!
...stadium-sized craters on roads
...saas-bahu soap operas
...rona-dhona and bitching on 'reality' shows
...Kites, Milenge Milenge and Raavan
...Ram Gopal Varma
...paan and gutkha stains
...calls to download caller tunes
...sleazy and unaesthetic condom & contraceptive-pill ads
...holier-than-thou self-righteous creatures
...God TV, Aastha Channel, Miracle Network,...
...CID and ACP Pradhyuman
...Aahat and its dancing cameraman
While we dream of freedom, here's wishing you yet another
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!
