Gandhi's Resurrection

Inside the grave, he's disturbed,
Turning sideways, haunted nightmares,
Startled and sweating, he opened his eyes
From beneath the soil, he woke up!

Feeling those three bullets inside the chest
Cognized of his awakening, but he knows
Why God wants him to resurrect now,
There is a mission to be fulfilled this time

'Hey Ram' Those last words left unsaid,
When that innocent kid confused his mind,
He is forgiven, his sins forgotten then,
Gandhi smiles and embraces the sinner!

But now, changed times, new threats arise,
Corrupted kings, kingpins pulling the string!
Cattle class powdered in power and might,
Slaughtered truths and hidden cries!

A youth enslaved to spotlight and might!
Null minded - Sly rats of Rip Van Winkle,
Lost values, lacks the innermost strength,
A nation's 'power', grieves and curses inspite!

Treacherous men, selling woman's pride,
Spits them after chewing through veins,
Crying angels and their half burnt wings!
As a crater created in God's mighty heart!

There is a lot to be done to this world,
Not from where he left, when he slept!
This country has walked back the steps,
A change, Renaissance is what she needs!

Non-Violence, tolerance, patience of mind,
Three tablets for the eternal peace,
For ever to sustain and to live fullest,
To bring back hope and mutual existence!

But this is no disease and cannot be cured,
Its a vicious cancer, needs a clean cut!
Its time for a movement, revolution for life,
Will a piece of advice bring any change?

Gandhi searched for his wooden stick,
Now, he has with him an untold trick,
He's determined to make the nation shine!
To liberate us (Once Again) He walks on to land!

    Even after hundreds of years from now people will rate Gandhi to be one of the finest 5 persons world has ever produced the others being Alexander the Great(?) , Shakespeare, Voltaire and Beethoven.
    But I differ with Valsa who says Gandhi would be much more ill fated to die a cruller death if he were to resurrect.
    The world has changed a lot but it does not mean the saviours of the world will always be eliminated and who knows one day another Gandhi will not re emerge from among our future generations?

    A poem of tribute...nice one

  • Valerie Dohren (8/23/2013 2:09:00 PM)

    It's all been said below, so it just remains to say what a great tribute poem this is.

  • Hazel Durham (8/23/2013 6:20:00 AM)

    Ghandi was a man of vision of truth and justice for all, the world needs the return of his humble and great influence of true goodness that will light these darkened times!
    Inspired and insightful write!

  • David Wood (8/23/2013 5:17:00 AM)

    Gandhi was indeed a great man and the world needs Gandhi's spirit to set as a benchmark. All politicians should read about Gandhi before getting into office. A saying of his I will always remember is an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind, A great man and a good write.

  • Rajendran Muthiah (8/23/2013 3:37:00 AM)

    It is interesting to imagine that Gandhi has resurrected and walks on to land. Surely there may be incarnations of Gandhi to save this nation from the grip of corrupt leaders and smugglers. But in this terror infected world, what can these non-violent Gandhis do? The young poet's imagination is superb. The use of apt diction makes the poem to be read again and again. Best wishes.

  • Valsa George (8/23/2013 2:16:00 AM)

    When things go out of control, the only option left before us is to hope for a xaviour who through some magic will set things right! Such a wait has been there from time immemorial! Gandhiji has been in many ways a xaviour for the people of India! But if he resurrects once more, he will have to die even a more violent death at the hands of an unruly mob! So let him lie quiet in his grave! A wonderful write much above the range of a youngster of your age!

    kudos to you for the chosen topic............very nicely written............u r a bravo bro! Three Cheers to Aswath for this poem........well done

    nearly fifty years ago i was influenced by Gandhi's writings/actions when i chose to become what the american selective service system called a conscientious objector to war. this was when the u.s. military could draft young men into military service rather than depend on volunteers as it now does.
    i don't know if one person, even Gandhi, could produce the results you desire in India. but i wish you luck. thanks for sharing. bri
    p.s. when i read tablets i thought (as i used to be a christian) about the tablets of stone the bible (old testament) says contained the ten commandments (rules of conduct) which moses presented to his people. i see in one of the comments that another reader thought of tablets as a prescription, pills i guess. i like that thought better than mine, but either might work.
