A Nation Called INDIA
by Madathil Rajendran Nair
Bookmark and Share
 

As I sat to watch
The TV after a long grind at my desk
One channel discussed
Why Sonia did what she did
Quoting her erstwhile loyal aides
 
Another went to Gaza
Debated the torment
Palestinians underwent
Chided Israel for being criminally adamant
 
Yet another one claimed
An ISI spy had designs
Planned from his base in Sri Lanka
To bomb vital sites in South India
 
Those who participated in the debates
Had mouthfuls to speak
In a wild cacophony that confused
Themselves and the hosts
As the viewers dozed off
Indifferent to their nation’s turmoil
 
As my sisters, daughters and mothers
Across a land called India
Got disrobed and wailed in pain
In a manner one of their great epics said
God knows what parts of their bodies bled
 
Who cares?
Don’t ask me please
I am too indifferent
I am an Indian to the hilt
My comfort lies in sleep

Comment Sarcasm, indifference, a bang ending.......

'Who cares?
Don’t ask me please
I am too indifferent
I am an Indian to the hilt
My comfort lies in sleep'

Comment I can imagine the disappointment, frustration and sadness that Rajettan feels. Based on some emails that I received, there is hope for India with the new government.

If you can search online for " PM Modi fast tracks government, silently
MADHAV NALAPAT New Delhi | 26th Jul 2014", you may find some interesting facts.

Best regards,

Vijayan

Comment Its an unfortunate reality. Life has become too busy for one to stop and take a look; let alone want to make a difference.
