Incredible India - Poem by santhana louis


…..……..Incredible India, VOLVO, A/c
high bench, shell white, wide windows
buses lining up in early sun shine
at the porch of the seven star hotel

videshi tourists from outside world
are getting in to visit the chosen places
hand held brouchures - glossy pictures
with awesome spirits of mystic surprises

guided tours to nicest locations
rest and lunch in high class mansions
approved guides give authorized versions
mostly old glory, to the tourists' illusion

chartered flight with satisfied tourists
flies away to next tour attraction
we, the unlucky locals, are out in the streets
for gas, water, electricity, wages, justice, rights and rations.

Unfortunately, seeing incredible things
Is called Tourism and
Credibility has no role here to play.

Louis Santhana
