Young India Rising

O ye young Boys & Girls ,

Those who’ve come of Age,

It’s time for you to decide –

Who shall act on the Grand stage .

 

You are the Majority ,

The seventy-five percent of our Motherland ,

Arise from your indifference & ignorance ,

Help in guiding Destiny’s hand !

 

Sons & Daughters of our Nation ,

Children of the Moon & the Sun , 

From Mountains , Deserts , Rivers & Plains ,

The battle of Ballots must be won .

 

But Forces within tear us apart ,

You are a scattered & divided voice ,

Those elements that thrive on hate ,

Exorcise them with your choice !

 

They will come & sing praises ,

Armed with cash , muscles & booze ,

Entice you to deal with Devil ,

With offers you can’t refuse .

 

If you ‘ve abstained your right ,

Hope you don’t make the same mistake twice ,

These Games will still be played ,

To forego the chance to roll the dice .

 

Choose Him who is truly worthy ,

By his deeds & not his claim,

Neither a thief in a Saviours guise ,

Nor Men haunted by their shame .

 

Beware of the sugar coated promises ,

 Of those bent on winning the race ,

While the hungry masses die in poverty ,

They dream of conquering space .

 

Wake up & seize the day ,

Believe in what is right ,

Forget your petty quarrels for once ,

March on to this Bloodless fight !

 

The Countdown has begun ,

Wheels of motion are at play ,

Our world can’t change at once ,

Though we build it each day by day .
