Hurt Pride

A political leftist group was in power in an Indian State
close to three decades and a half.
Their detractors blamed the group's biggest element
for a bad industrial scenario.
When they did concentrate on setting up industries
the detractors came in the way.
The State remained where it was.

The main component of the earlier group
was blamed for political goondaaism.
Now their detractors in power
surpass them in the same game.
The State remains where it was.

Actually, the State was always in the morass.
Some personalities only underlined the statement.
A State which requires a foreign missionary
to put balm on its suffering humanity
only double-underlined the statement!
Is the State traditionally a wallower of the dust!
For a diasporic, pride is hurt to no end.
