An Apology to My Country Men-By Odil Medeira You are not birds or animals, You do not migrate. Therefore you are not migrants. You’ve only been named thus, By tyrants. So that you can be walked over. Hover the choppers above. Hailing petals. Sadly not for you my countrymen. But then,No one cares. They call you migrants. I did too. I am sorry. You are my fellowmen. Let us all call you that. You are human, with a soul With a heart. Like the MP,or the actor or me. We shall cease to call you,Migrant. You belong to this country. You help build it. Brick by brick. You are the bricks, Of Modern India. My fellow countrymen. You deserve respect! #photography #atulyadav #PTI
