My Land, My Legacy
by Shernaz Wadia
Bookmark and Share
 
I am from a seed
of a foreign country
blown by adversity
rooted firm and deep
into the liberal bosom
of this gracious land
 
of Krishna and Radha
of Ram and Sita
where wars were fought
between good and evil
this land of Laxman and Bharat
where today Cain halts not
to sink fangs into Abel’s throat
 
I am from this land of yoga
and of Gautama Buddha
the land of love and peace…
now of brewing unrest
this land whose aridity
guzzles farmers’ blood
this land of leprous corruption
contorting and mangling…
 
I am from this land
of exemplary intelligence,
fragile forbearance,
shameful superstitions,
glorious traditions and
glaring contradictions
a tiny seed into an orchard grown
my legacy - a treasure chest
of complexities intricate.
