'changing clouds' by Jawaharlal Nehru

To Watch the changing clouds, like clime in clime;
Oh! sweet to lie and bless the luxury of time.

Poem by Jawaharlal Nehru written in 1922 from Prison

 ***

Our spirits were damped by the news from outside, and this, added to the various humours that prison produces, increased the strain of life there. But still there remained within us an inner feeling of satisfaction, that we had preserved our self-respect and dignity, that we had acted rightly whatever the consequences.

Jawaharlal Nehru's thoughts during the imprisonment time in 1922
