Happy Independence Day

I feel happy that my country is Independent, but am I? I can't even walk through a crowd, With my chin up and head held high. I still fear speaking my heart out Because there are thousands waiting to judge, What is spoken, discuss threadbare, Form opinions and never budge. I dont have the right to wear what I want to, Because I am a girl, a widow, a woman. And if I still do don the attire I like, I become an object available for fun. Gone are the days when I could write, Sonnets and ballads in the name of love. Love here is a banished word, And lovers meet in heaven above. I am but a humble soldier, sailor and an air warrior, Yet it pains my heart to see, As I proudly serve my country without fear, There are many afraid to be as they wish to be. All I wish for my country and countrymen today, Is hope, peace and harmony. May every Indian be truly equal, And from 'I' and 'You' they become 'We'.

Live The Moment

Time once gone never returns, So just do what your heart yearns.  Live each moment like its last,  Else 'twill become a thing of past.  Love like you'll never love again,  Take a walk or dance in the rain.  Just do what your heart says is right, Even if the brain puts up a fight.  Sing the songs you've wanted to sing, Live your life like a Queen or King.  Some day when you are weary and small, Thoughts will knock and give a call. Memories of moments you have lived and gone, Of times and hours with  that 'Someone'. They will truly make you smile,  You will feel you are worthwhile.  Hope is what that should keep you  going, Live each moment and love  what you are doing...
