A brave new world…

(Where Morocco carries the dreams of Arab world and Africa in World Cup Soccer, British economy trails behind that of India while getting a PM of Indian origin- the former colonies are asserting themselves in a world where the playing field has never been level…)

They didn’t ask for any apology

They didn’t ask for any reparation

They moved forward despite their history

Bloodied and soiled by colonization

They hunkered down and quietly toiled

Equality with the colonizers was a distant dream

They powered through poverty and turmoil

To rebuild what was plundered, a monumental task it seemed

*

The road is difficult, uneven the playing field

But their strong nerves are learning not to yield

To the deeply ingrained dictates of colonial power

To cut the cord of colonization is the need of the hour..

Let the world see those faces ignored

Let their hopes and ambitions soar

In this post-colonial world let a new order be unfurled

Let them take center-stage, the denizens of the third world
