Agony During Train Journey - Poem by Mailrangam Visvanathan Venkataraman

While traveling in train
I notice lot of misery
It gives to heart pain
By causing real worry

No face is promising
As all are in a hurry
True cheer is missing
Ignorance all carry

College boys shouting
Girls happily clapping
I am with fear doubting
Whether fate is trapping?

Beggar’s voice is heard
In heart sets gloom
Begging words delivered
Expressing their doom

They sing a song
Or quote their dismay
They are not wrong
As life they must play

Poor people fight
To take their seats
They get delight
If empty seat greets

Poverty is fully visible
Almost all are weak
The sight is horrible
All incessantly speak

Someone will cough
And someone will spit
Many will laugh
Creating a low spirit

Almost all will embrace
Each other with no love
Every day this takes place
All manage somehow

Service of Indian Railways
Is no doubt above-par
But very bad are Indian ways
This gives to heart scar.
