I'D Prefer To Live With Dogs - Poem by Madhav Sarkunde

Play Poem Video

Once one of students
Asked me how I would live
After my retirement
I said her straightway
I’d go in a far-off jungle
With sixteen dogs and spend
My remaining life with them
Merrily
Why with dogs?
She laughed curiously
I tried to convince her-
Is it not my right to live
With animals after
I have fed up with humans
Living for sixty years?
Then she teased me
In good humor
Sir, let me know, will dogs
Be ready to accompany you?
You bet” my words thundered
Because dogs are dogs
Not human beings
Precisely, they are
Neither fanatic
Nor Chauvinistic
