The Abysmal Tunnel

This political party or that
the humongous conundrum
remains the same.
Why the inhabitants
of a certain State of India
boasting of a renaissance past,
are regressive in attitude?
Being pretentious
is a psychological disease.
Drama, song, dance,
fashionable literary pursuits
look like symptoms
of a deeper malaise.
A defeatist feeling
just gnaws all the time,
for most things are mismanaged.
Is it just the religious partition
or something deeper?
A faulty psyche?
How long is the dark tunnel?
When will the State see light?
