We explore,
earn and exist
with a language
of old exploitation.

It’s as our culture –

We winnow ideas out
of dialectal chaff.

mustn’t be imposed.
extremism is a myopia.

Wherever you grow,
your mom and hue
remain the same,
but your tongue can be
changed from the cradle.

English thrives above
creeds and colors,
connecting continents,
never demanding a passport.

*English language grew up in India as a result of the British colonization. Now this language has attained great prominence in our land.
