On this very special day, the republic day of India, this is my humble tribute to my motherland.

Constitution of the Constitution

When a nation had to reclaim its nationhood,
Not for itself, but for the world's greater good,
Many a life was given, for a vision afar,
Some in toil, and some in war.

Justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity, to be adopted as the way,
As the noblest ones thought, and as was their say.

What a wonder, that when the heart shows a path of light, the mind wanders away in theft,
What a wonder, that the right arm knows not its tie to the left,
That it takes wars and a father to awaken a man to his errors,
To see his lethargy and his contribution to the terrors,
That even upon seeing, he is in his shell,
When his brother and sister piteously call out to him from hell.

Yet, courage knows no failure, knows not to stop,
The noblest and bravest gathered to give the nation a pillar and a prop,
One hundred and sixty six days of deliberations,
With the trust and burden of crores, in their creations.

O Mother, may this child, now & ever, feel the weight and solemnity of the sacrifices,
And never waste a moment in serving to uphold the sacred edifices and offices,
Knowing that he is, at every moment, constituent in constituting the constitution,
And that a living constitution provides for a loving life.
