Being Indian

What does this truly mean?
Something you are by virtue of birth?
By virtue of lineage?
Or is it a tag given by virtue of living?
Is this tag aspirational?
Or is it inspirational?
Perhaps none of the above

Living miles from the country
many are more Indian
Than some occupying the land

I wonder when I watch
Some working hard to renounce the country
But still clinging to the tag
A few aspiring to be known by the tag
But nowhere near close to the land
Or the people..
