Independence and you, the Ira way



A little crafty endeavor to mark Independence Day (Idea courtesy: Deccan Herald) 


 Dearest Ira


Happy 75th Independence Day! 


As we celebrate this special day, read about the freedom struggles and be thankful for what we have, here are little thoughts on this big word, Independence


You assert your independence when you.... 


Share your thoughts with us, unfiltered


Eat what you want, with glee


Dream the path of your choice, unhindered


Choose the love of your life, with fierceness


Sing and dance in front of the mirror, uninhibited


Draw a rainbow hairstyle on the figurine, with pride


Speak what's on your mind, unabashedly


Walk away from the norm, with little heed


When you stand up for self and say 'No', unhesitatingly 


Read books, write stories, make random crafts, sleep, eat and repeat the same, with happiness


Fail, fall and learn to rise, unscathed


Be yourself and dance to your own tune, with courage


Be kind to self before others, unthinkably


Travel the world and be a part of it, with empathy


Wear your adventures on your lips, unlocked 


Be that little speck that will shine through, with gratitude


Question every injustice, unshackled


Stand up for what you deem is right, with fearlessness


Go, our little girl, assert your Independence every step of the way! 


Love, 

Mamma and Papa
