Where is the freedom???

In the independence glory we bask,
But where is the freedom I ask?

Country has been free for 64 years...
But have we got freedom from our fears??

Fear of life, Fear of death,
Almost everyday, the tremors we get...

Slavery of money, Slavery of norms,
Slavery everywhere, just different forms..

Look at an Indian daughter,
Obeying every whim of dear father..

Look at her give in to her in laws..
for her, its freedom with flaws.

We were slaves of the foreign raj,
rebelling we got back the "Taj"!

But even today, there is something which binds..
that something is our own, its in our minds!
