Full Moon Emptiness

Grey shards of memories, generate resembling images, Whether I like it or not, My mind thinks Logically.

"I am not sure what kind of issue it is or why people are "for" or "against" reciting this song "vande mataram"... but I do know it has nothing to do with the way we live our day-to-day life... the days of freedom struggle are long forgotten and the song at this moment does not invoke any nationalism (at least in me) at all... I do not know why people make such a fuss about something as unimportant as that. How many of us even know our actual National Anthem by heart is a serious question.
Its too crude and too subtle an issue to incinerate people's minds when we have much larger and much graver issues at hand. But as usual our politicians want something to distract public attention from their misdeeds and so a stupid ploy as this surfaces.
No one speaks about how we should improve the standards of living of those myriads of people who are in murderous clutches of vicious cycle of poverty, ignorance and day-to-day molesting. We as a people should alienate ourselves from such issues and work in a direction that demands peace, brotherhood and progress in terms of providing everyone with at least basic needs, if not all the luxuries of life.
Whether your religion allows you to recite the song or not is immaterial, and even if it allows, how much that song really matters is another issue.
Guys, just forget the whole thing and start working... Bonne Chance !"
