Daniel Trevelyn Joseph (21 December 1945 / Mumbai, India)
Interrogation was going on at night when
Shri P Chidambaram was unreasonable, at last
Forcing me to say, “I am not Secretary Agriculture,
Nor of Planning commission nor Commerce,
But I am Secretary, Urban Development Department,
And I am not expected to have the data you want”.
I woke up with the words ringing clear in my own ears.
My God! Am I a buck-passing bureaucrat still,
Three years after retirement, and in sleep, too?
