Common Citizens of India
by Dr. Varanasi Ramabrahmam
Bookmark and Share
  Naxalites own the forests
And the tribal the mountains; 

The chauvinist and fanatic; 
Caste and regional leaders, 

And sub-nationality professing and 
Championing lunatics 

Own the rest of the country; 

To where do I belong and what is my status? 
Where shall I live? 

And how shall I earn my livelihood? 
I am a common citizen of an ancient land;
India!

Comments on this Poem

Comment A thought provoking poem with very pertinent questions raised. Indeed where is the place of common man In today's India as most of it has been reclaimed by corruption and vote bank politics. INDIAis best described as Intelligent Nation Doing Idiotic Acts or Intolerant Nation Doing Insensitive Acts...! Thanks for sharing this well written poem, Dr. Varanasi.

Comment Yours is a wailing cry in wilderness
Poor denizen of non-man's land
Please know you are not alone
And that is the only hope we have
Let us build on it and forge forward
