Cry or laugh,
On national helplessness,
And boost about hollow tolerance and brotherhood.
Shrug the shoulders,
And hide the cruel apathy,
Cowardice, incompetence and unconcerned ness,
Under the shroud of secularism and social justice.
Yelling about,
Tolerance, as glorious tradition,
Largest democracy, as highest pride,
Reservation, as tallest peak,
And secularism, as jewel in the crown.
Alas this narcissism,
Causing genocide, ethnic cleansing,
Sponsored killing, hatred, arson,
And what not?
Bleating secularism and reservation,
As immortal and eternal medicine,
To all crimes,
Ensuring divine security and eternal peace,
And leaving nation shivering in fear and grief.
Crown the Afzals, Soharabs and Ldens,
As national heroes,
And martyrdoms of Sharmas, Sandeeps and Singhs,
As national mockery.
Jai Ho sectarian secularism,
Jai Ho racial reservation,
Jai Ho Jai Ho Jai Ho Hind.
