Chains restricted his movement.
He sat outdoors on a bench,
staring vacantly at all...
When asked who he was - He said
feebly, he was a student,
of class one and moved his toes,
to scribble his alphabets
in the sand under his feet.
A shocked visitor just wept,
she could not bear his sad plight.
His family insisted,
that he was safest when chained
to the bench - He could not move
so violence was ruled out.
He was not the only one,
Others suffered the same fate!
