Who are you, reader, reading my poems a hundred years hence?

I cannot send you one single flower from this wealth of the spring, one single streak of gold from yonder clouds. Open your doors and look abroad.

From your blossoming garden gather fragrant memories of the vanished flowers of an hundred years before. In the joy of your heart may you feel the living joy that sang one spring morning, sending its glad voice across an hundred years.

Tagore’s The Gardener, 1915.
Happy Independence Day, 2022

Chaman mein ikhtilat-e-rangoboo (both colour and fragrance) se baat banti hai.
Hum hi hum hain to kya hum hain tum hi tum ho to kya tum ho.

75+ Years Old Republic – an Organically Diverse and Democratic Union – no imposition of uniformity or conformity had ever worked here, however popular or mighty the imposing groups or reformed ideologies had been. Republic Day honours 26th Jan on which the Constitution of India came into effect replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing document of India. The Constitution was adopted by the Indian Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949, and came into effect on 26 January 1950 with a democratic government system, completing the country’s transition towards becoming an independent republic. 26 January was chosen as the Republic day because it was on this day in 1929 when Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed as opposed to the Dominion status offered by the British Regime.

Socially or say racially, Indian Union is somewhere between European Union and African Union, I am not sure towards which end and it doesn’t matter either, all living there are humans too.

The Beating Retreat ceremony is held after officially denoting the end of Republic Day festivities. It is conducted on the evening of 29 January, the third day after the Republic Day. It is performed by the bands of the three wings of the military, the Indian Army, Indian Navy and Indian Air Force. The venue is Raisina Hill and an adjacent square, Vijay Chowk, flanked by the North and South block of the Rashtrapati Bhavan (President’s Palace) towards the end of Rajpath.

The Chief Guest of the function is the President of India who arrives escorted by the (PBG), a cavalry unit. When the President arrives, the PBG commander asks the unit to give the National Salute, which is followed by the playing of the Indian National Anthem, Jana Gana Mana, by the Army. The Army develops the ceremony of display by the massed bands in which Military Bands, Pipe and Drum Bands, Buglers and Trumpeters from various Army Regiments besides bands from the Navy and Air Force take part which play popular tunes like Abide With Me, Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite hymn, and Saare Jahan Se Achcha at the end. Essentially, the idea is emphatically showcasing how the Chaman or Garden or a Nation cherishes multi-colored souls’ of its dear I’s, even if creator never demands back respect, most I’s do oblige naturally.

Even in the whole of Bhagavad Gita wherever I has been used… it simply stands for our soul atman within the body… the real master and controller of the body! Me is indicative of the physical body… the human body! Mine also represents the physical manifest self… the human body! Wherever the term you have been used… it is indicative of God Almighty… the ultimate Creator and controller of the Cosmos!

|| In essence… the whole cosmic world rotates between I and you. When you… God Almighty… the Creator of the Cosmos explodes with a big bang… all individual selves… I’s (all souls आत्मन्) start their cosmic journey. From the first manifestation to the last… the goal of I remains… merging with the greater I! The formless almighty self we call and worship as God! In the world of souls’ atmans… the physical manifest self is a temporal phase. Other than cleansing of the real self… our soul atman within… there is no other purpose for human life & every other supporting element that exhibits its existence ||

In every given circumstance of life and time… the analogy of I and you always holds good! No meaning of I, as a standalone reference to any living being 🇮🇳 Celebrate #Independence of I, Liberate #अमृत souls
