Murkhamantri As A Biz Guru At Oxford

Murkhamantri as a business management guru
Going to Oxford
To deliver lectures
Before the management faculty
And guys,
In rural welfare and good governance,
But God knows,
What he did here in India
And hat did his papers portray him to be?

Oh, the bluffs of the big bluff-master,
A blunt rustic's antics,
The sophisticated foreigners
Could not!
The slates and lime stick pencils
And the lanterns to be given to
The adult and poor fellows,
He used to supply otherwise.

His people just for the data used to
Give buffaloes and cows to the poor
On paper,
So used to be the schemes
As for giving hens, ducks, sheep and goats
And in his time, villages developed they not,
Just turned into the dens of crime and corruption,
Illiteracy and underdevelopment,
Just the paper-work was done
And the media were threatened to submit
Under pressure.

A fool's lathi, thick stick,
You don't know it,
How it sets on the head!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
