The Golden Bird


one of the most beautiful places in the world. 


and one of the dirtiest in the pool..


where hungry stomachs know the joy!


but there are hungry girls and hungry boys...


where love reigned since time immemorial..


yet terror casts some nasty spells..


where music is worshipped, its in our roots..


still no dearth of a few copycats or two..


where divine and divinity daily meet


but somehow disgrace God with our feet...


oh watch those movies that inspire..


and there are a few that make you perspire..


the land of Cricket and World Cup wins..


of Master Blaster, Prince and Jumbo spins..


where people are traditionally traditional.


and know how to co-exist in the modern world..


where traffic congestion is a modern art..


but there is lot of space in the Indian heart!


Love it or hate it dude,
This land truly rules!!

Lovely post ..........India is truly a contradiction at every corner...or perhaps "opposite values are complementary" ! :) I doubt *anyone* - even someone who has beebn born and raised in India can truly claim to understand it completely. Its a country where people in the same city live in different centuries.....

Anusha said...

@ RR
you are absolutely right. These contrasts and contradictions make this such a unique place...the spirit of the ppl, the arrogance, the kind heartedness, the stubbornness, the intelligence, the stupidity becomes all so evident when I look at myself..I am an Indian.. :-)
