Narendra Modi

A wistful nation prayed and yearned
And then, their summer dreams at last have flowered
Modi, please take the reins and lead
Grant them the deliverance they need

They didn’t vote for a party or a group
They chose a man they sensed
Within themselves who would sure
Effect their post-independence sins a cure

And you happen to be the worthy son
Who called dear India mother
On a land where statesmen had scampered
Hither and thither hoping to ‘discover’ their mother!

And where politicians of every hue
Have cried victory to her aloud
While away from public eye
Worked for selfish ends in the sly

She is on her sick bed, gasping for breath
Kneel beside her, help her stand
And walk towards a brilliant morn
Across the great Gangetic plains

On to a land sans minorities
Or a majority, but of true equality
Of the fullness of our Indianness
Which one and a quarter billion equally share

Take us ahead Modi, we can’t wait
Blessed are you, mom has her hand on your pate
Our roots are bleeding, no more wait
We don’t care two hoots
For the balderdash your detractors dish out about your past

Comment Dearest Rajen,
Great Read

Poetic, Artistic, Magnanimity, Simplicity and Majestic to deliver a simple Truth. That is not asking much from a Politician when He vowed the solemn oath for Office.

It is important what you may have promised during your campaign Mr Prime-Minister. Equally important is what you deliver during your reign.

May Bharat Mata glitter during your term in New-Delhi

Comment The Indians selected their own "Rakshak"
now. May god bless him to survive between the
crooked politicians.

Comment It has come out well. However, I pitty the poor soul.
Too much expectations from this poor soul.
I think all of us must be very happy, if the directions and steps being taken are in the right and earnest direction.

Comment Fantastic poem. However, we need to give him some time to fix things up. His magic will then definitely work.

Comment Thanks for this express and explicit poem. Let this be the turning point for the India especially to eradicate the dynasty rule from this soil. Sri Modi should exercise utmost care for not to slip away this golden opportunity and to fulfill the huge responsibility bestowed on him. All the best wishes for his government and party.
