What is the theme of the poem Loss of India by Zulfikar Ghose? 2Admin Staff answered 6 months ago

The poem "Loss of India" by Zulfikar Ghose is about the dark side of the Independence of India. The poet was born in Mumbai, India but migrated to Pakistan during the partition. Immediately after the independence, the country was divided into India and Pakistan followed by bloody communal riots between Hindus and Muslims.

The main theme of the poem is that we are still slaves though we celebrate independence day. As soon as the British left, the greedy leaders left no stone unturned to grab the power. Mahatma Gandhi – the symbol of peace, was killed by Godse – a Hindu terrorist.
