Oh home country


Oh home country,
change comes naturally to you,
As it does to me.
Some of the old is lost,
While the new flourish.
Creative destruction
Of ancient ways to give way to the new.
Passing time shifts the cultural landscape,
Snapshots in time from my visits remain.
Matching the picture to the reality,
Matching the past to the present.
Oh home country,
Some change is good,
Some change is necessary
And some change is sad.
Nostalgia Nostalgia,
Screams the sarangi.
The dholak beats away,
While the rockstar rises.
Sweet moments,
Sad moments,
Oh home country,
Thou shalt not be forgotten.
A part of me,
Always, always.
