Freedom At Midnight

By Rohan Chakrabarty

It was a long day at work,
I deluded of a much deserved sleep, longed for one.
When suddenly out of the horizon of multitude concrete structures,
Came an ear splitting scream “ India won the world cup”

Suddenly smile slipped on my tired face.
All my lassitude disappearing into the darkness.
I leapt at the hands raised up in celebration,
Hundreds embraced me, thousands congratulated me, though I knew none.

I looked at the rejoicing people;
Reveling for a team of unknown personalities.
All the barriers of the society lay broken;
I felt as a complete Indian tonight.

I had witnessed freedom at midnight again.

 ( the poem was written after Indian cricket team’s historical world cup win last year)
