They sold it and you felt betrayed,
But, will you own your dream land back and are you willing to start from their nothing-land towards your Gorkhaland?
They ignited the wildfire and left you in ashes,
While they hid themselves behind the power and some behind the walls,
But, will you let the Gorkha anger inside you suffocate and die and won’t you rise from the ashes?
They were the leaders of the unaware and the simple,
They fooled us once again while you waited and counted,
But, are you still waiting for the Messiah of your Identity to arrive or will you be one?
They played with the sentiments and outsmarted us,
Meanwhile we glimpsed the strength of unity,
But, why do you wait of the right to lead the armed mass and put the unity in use?
They didn’t let the Gorkha Dream realise,
They suppressed in ways possible,
But, can they suppress and tame the Gorkha Spirit inside you?
This is not the end as they might think,
This is the revival of genesis,
You will not let 110 years of the search of Identity go vain,
You will take it personally and run with the baton or else give up and not call it end.
Because the change starts with you and me, we change so does the community and the face of Gorkhaland. Change is what we need before we own our Land.
