She is our Mother
Yes, she is.
By any definition.
As it is she who gave us birth
Nourished, nurture and enabled us
To live and enjoy this beautiful life.
Though not in flesh and blood
She is a unique, immortal spirit
Conceived in minds and hearts, deep down
A sacred entity in herself
To be felt, adored and glorified,
She is known as the land of birth
The proud mother of millions
Of varied merits and ambitions
Hailing from different backgrounds
With diverse mindsets and emotions
There are people with seasoned thinking
And also immature and devoid of reason
Adamant at raising voices of dissent
Only to feed their selfish intentions .
But this magnanimous mother
Embraces them all with equal love
And doles out her gifts to one and all
Regardless of their religion or region .
Whether they be loyal ,sensible and grateful
Or most arrogant selfish and thankless
She is to them ever loving and kind
Who never turns unjust or unduly partial
For, firmly does she believe in proving
That a mother should always remain a mother
And let the children decide for themselves
Whether to be grateful or else, otherwise
So what if you sing not her praise aloud
Or even refuse to pronounce her name?
Over and above these rituals she stands
Intact is her glory, you uphold it or not !
