The Indian freedom movement,
saw Tilak, an extremist
the father of the Indian freedom
another noted one M. K, Gandhi,
who came from South Africa,
advocated Ahimsa, a Satvik way
of fighting, inducing millions of followers.
One such being Narayanan,
son of a British supporter,
in his early twenties and the other
is Saraswathi, daughter of a nationalist.
Both having decided individually
to remain unmarried. “Gain Freedom”
is their ultimate aim.
Driven by patriotism, they write letters
to Gandhi, to intervene and stop the alliance,
Their high placed fathers indulge to make both tie the knot.
Gandh, respecting the stature of the seniors., keeps
Narayanan and Saraswathi, unable to defy
their powerful fathers, marry on 22/Aug/1947,
a week after the Indian independence.
They, who were reluctant, fall headlong
into marital bliss, raise a family, a big one rather,
a brood of six, I am one of them.
