THE TELENGANA HAIKUS


1.

Shouts at pitch
The old saga winning
The Andhra retreats.

2.

Words in flow
The dead Musi listens
Foul city recollects.

3.

India on hills
Does keep vigil sweating
Poems swallow rebels.

'Musi' is a river that once flowed in all might across the city of Hyderabad.

'Rebels' are those who oppose the bifercation of the state.

    Good. The inevitable course of history makes it fruitful. Diversity of India that Adi Sankara saw..Tolerance that Vedanta taught. These are forces. (Report) Reply

    I cannot say whether it was a right decision or wrong decision as much can be said on both the sides. Poets react and cannot respond over it.... (Report) Reply
