Leave Travel Concession Scam

The probing eyes of the officers skip
Delhi to Jaipur via Brazil trip.
Those in cities make claims
and exhaust funds with rhymes.
Those in hamlets don’t receive LTC drip.
Those in Secretariat avail LTC
and in Districts too notes they see.
The teachers in towns are shown mercy
by the stained clerks hit with currency.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The State and Central Govts. in India give money every three years to travel to a place in India with their families. The Govt sanctions only a limited amount. The staff working in HeadQuarters will exhaust this amount after diverting a paltry sum to District Offices. The teachers in rural areas are denied this fund. Those in cities make bogus claims. A good Govt will distribute this money to all its employees.But in India, the govts. and most of the officers are corrupt.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
