Red Green Black

Flawed though the dream was, for our generation the dying embers of Camelot have finally been extinguished....with tears of happiness we had welcomed what could be one December two decades ago and now with tears of shock we bid her farewell in the December cold.
At a time when many of us had been critical of her Machivellian politics she finally has the last laugh as she becomes immortalized as the slain democrat. I wait for a time when the sudden pain at hearing her name goes away and when remembering her can brings back the smiles and the fondness we all had for her in our own way.. the digs at her accent, the helmet hair, the silk jackets..hum kehtey hain...the energy..the dupatta and a spirit that never was still.
