Lamentation, a prayer for help coming out of pain,
is very common in the Bible.
Over one third (50 or so) of the psalms are laments.
One classic example of a Lament is -

"Awake! Why are you asleep, O Lord?
Arise! Cast us not off forever!
Why do you hide your face,
forgetting our woe and our oppression?
For our souls are bowed down to the dust,
our bodies are pressed to the earth."
(Psalm 44:24-26)

This year, India celebrates her 74th Independence Day on August 15th 2020. India accomplished freedom after a long Independence movement, which started in the year 1857 and ended with the formation of Independent India in the year 1947 marking the end of British rule. The struggle for freedom was a long and tiresome one. Thousands of people have laid down their lives on the line so that our country breathes this day. The tricolor flag of India that is hoisted in this day engraves the feeling of patriotism in the heart and minds of every Indian and showcases the feeling of gratitude to all the freedom fighters. Till last year, we celebrated Independence Day by hoisting the National Tricolor; put up saffron, white and green decorations; march in parades without any fear of apprehension.
