Let My Country Awake, May Be

Where thoughts are censored and rumors roar loud;
Where the facts are manufactured;
Where the world has been broken up into communities by caste and creed;
Where every dissent is seen as contempt;
Where we elect those who have the least respect for the law;
Where selfish interests fuel the fire to burn all sense and reason;
Where one needs to prove their patriotism by pleasing those in power –
Into that swamp, my Gurudev, our country lays in slumber.

Inspired by “Let My Country Awake” by Rabindranath Tagore
