‘Three Patriots’ – by Roger Dragonette
Three generations of a proud Indian family
A mother, a daughter and a granddaughter
The heart brims over with joy and delight
And an appreciation of the determination
That little Nyla barged into the world with
But, behind it all a trace of trepidation
As a new political dispensation
Takes the reins of a nation hurtling towards
A precipice or a pinnacle
Will they hold it against us that we are Hindustani, but not Hindu?
Will it count for nothing that we defended India?
That we worked industriously and with all out heart
To keep the lifelines of the nation flowing?
I may be westernised, but I turned my back
On the West when it was ready to embrace me
Because I love my India!
They were clever in playing
The eighty per cent card at the hustings
And reaped the rewards
But, hopefully, the reality of
Twenty per cent of over a billion
Cannot be wished away
Nor can the Constitution that protects that twenty per cent
Jai Hind, say all proud Indians…including The Anglo-Indian, the Goan, the Muslim and the Christian
