3 Shades to Freedom

Red
And the countdown began;
With just 60 seconds left, under the curt sun.
She ran, bare feet, on hot tarmac:
Striped in black and white.

Yellow
From one window to another.
She knocked, she pleaded, she begged.
She waved the flags in tri-colour,
And held them high; minus the pride.

Green
She took a break from her fight for freedom.
Back then, what they fought for was something different.
Right now, she strived to end the hunger invasion.
By selling each flag for only Rs.10/-

This is so creative and beautiful. Although the dark background makes it hard to appreciate it fully.
