It’s a fair, huge festival
Celebration of humanity
With myriad colours flashing all around
Blue, yellow, black, green, red
Interlaced together in peace with white
Amidst spirits, music, cheers & uproar.
204 nations, more than 10,000 athletes
Caucasian, Aryan, Colored, Mongolian
Tall, stout, lanky, muscular, well-built, heavy weight
All beaming ear to ear
Exuding divine confidence
Competing for the pride of the nation.
No conflict, no discrimination
What so ever be the caste, creed, sex, race
All are for participation, positive competition
They win, they lose
Gold, silver & bronze
But the winners are all
As they compete and conquer inner fear.
They greet, they respect
They acknowledge each other
And practice being human.
It looks utopian world for a while
And makes one believe
Yes, we all have had same ancestor.
We have similar genes
And we are one species.
Doesn’t this look like a beautiful affair
Happening in some other planet far away
When the world today is full of
Hatred, violence, war, terrorism
Looking for opportunities to wipe each other
Can’t we co-exist peacefully together
The way humans exist during Olympics.
