Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran (8.8.1952 / Manakad)
Integration that we clamour for
Disintegration we design for
Unity in Diversity: India’s facet
Diversity, disunity are in closet.
No national spirit acts in rescue;
No co-ordination glares unique.
Vitiated Political Ambitions snarl
At the stranded panicky people.
The Himalayan chill frozen minds
Eat, drink in star bars and mines.
Father of the Nation Gandhiji weeps
At Highway junctions in Idol forms.
Harijans weep, Girijans weep, but
None to keep promises highly put.
In Legislature Canteen Primary needs
Pitiably play shadow-dance; no deeds.
Votes and Whiskey stirred black- horses
Rush to mikes in spikes; roar for votes! .
Illiterate poor and injured minds again
Ink: first- finger for a five year tension!
