Independence !

Our tongues are free but words just make noise

Thoughts are still imprisoned, why we do not liberate them

Our bodies are free but steps do not go 

Hearts are still imprisoned, why we can’t break shackles of social evil

Our sky is free but breaths suffocate and break
Air is still imprisoned, why we don’t clean the dissolved poisons

Out country is free but the roads are not yet safe
Humanity is still imprisoned, why we don’t fight savagery within

Society, religion, caste, language, region, gender, occupation 

There is crowd of colours, why we don’t separate identity of tricolour
Jai Hind!
PS- this is the English translation of my Hindi poem aazadi!
