The (Silent) Death of the Ordinariness
by Dibyendu Ghosal
Bookmark and Share
  Welcome to our Newly Balkanized Times :
Thinking of our resident 'Maithili-Bihari' cook
'Dina' ' my grandpa's personal 'service provider'.
Artless and tactless, he joined me in
The Silicon Valley of India.
His hilarious recounting of the Dhoti-Punjabi
Brigade's daily battle with the fish-sellers '
The thought drags on.

But the greatest worry would have been
The fury of today's lynch brigade, the distance
From them my life notwithstanding.
It's the 'silent death of the ordinariness'
We took for granted, and that too, for so long.

Dina's beyond harm.
A 'North Indian' (including North and Eastern Indian)
Is an unwelcome phenomenon in Bangalore.
Our Hindi belt 'bhaiya' would have
Been thrown into prison had he
Been alive.
A high-octane campaign, real 'reality show'.
Of course, at irregular intervals.

'Oh-mi-god !' The straw has broken the camel's back.
Success if guaranteed because of
The politicos, the 'language warriors' '
All have 'skin in the game'.
 
A 'Universal Indian phenomenon'.
