There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.
Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.
Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.
November by Walter de la Mare
India is much more than poverty and slums!!
I am an Indian so you might think that it is my nationalistic mindset that lets me speak good about India. But i would like to tell you that the fact I am of the nationalistic mindset also helps me see the things needed to improve my country. As a foreigner you must be having an image of India as a poor country but if you could measure the love of the people for one's country, I think India would be the richest country in the world.
We are the fastest growing economy in the world but we are still sentimental about our culture. Our Prime Minister is one of the most influential and powerful men in the world but he still bows and greets the representative of any country that he visits. This shows that we are not the people who like to go around showing an air of superiority instead we want everyone to think about us with love and respect.
