Treasure Island

S.D. TIWARI

(December.1955 / India)

Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied


Justice seekers wait day after day,
Month after month, year after year
Even decade is passed but
In course of justice they don’t hear.

Sometimes they pass away
without getting the justice.
Such delays lack faith
In system amongst the public.

Maggu's land was captured
In an act of atrocity
And his cow was stolen
From his own vicinity.

With good efforts of police
The stolen cow was traced
But died beforel order of justice
To return it, was graced.

Maggu filed an other suit
Demanding for compensation;
His land dispute was already
Pending under litigation.

Finally justice prevailed
He got verdict in his favour
Compensation and his land
Years he waited with fervor.

But by the time justice given
Old Maggu was died
This is how legal maxim
Justice delayed is justice denied.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
