A Lament

A Lament1.jpg
  There is nothing to lament
About the passing of
The old world order

The Vedic, the Mughal,
The colonial world,
Are all preserved

In their bathing ghats,
In their architecture,
In their education,

Names of places
Streets and buildings,
Still represent the old world.

Names like Manikarnika,
The Taj Mahal, or
The Victoria Memorial

Always stand for
Death, love, lost glory,
The enviable history of races

The same old stories
Repeated again and again
Even in their apparent decay.
