World as Family

“Vasudhev Katumbkam” or “World is one family”
Yet far distant reality and considered silly
It can never become a fact in reality
As world leaders lack capabilities

We have all the rules about democratic norms
Bit public unaware and kept in dark rooms
No one has time for framing welfare rules
Everybody is hell bent upon making people fools

Everything is shrouded under mystery
Country is gloomy and reminded days of past history
Poor are on rise and tremendous increase in poverty
How then come freedom and true sense of liberty?

Foreign restrictions are still within our knowledge to understand
They too are undergoing inflation pressure and unable to withstand
Hence some of the strict measures are possible
But we fail to understand the domestic measures putting us in troubles

Individual liberty is possible where education rate is high
The rights and duties are well understood and implied
Thousands of people still starve under poverty lines
Many commit suicides and their life is sidelined

Farmers die of rising debts and students die of unemployment
People at large have safety dangers and marred by dangerous movements
Insurgents and terrorists strike at crowded place with no mercy
Where should we go and ask for safety and clemency

Overall picture and scenario is proof of dismal show
The tendency is to look for self and silently go
Raise no banners and meekly witness the irregularities to grow
The polluted rivers rise to high level and freely flow

How are we going to combat such nuisance in country?
How can national frontiers are to be guarded by the sentries?
Where there is lack of popular will and political will
Insurgents and lawbreakers strike at will and soldiers are killed

Still to go further, countries wealth is siphoned off and taken outside
The cry is well raised and its impact is felt world wide
Many hungry nations can thrive and stay peaceful again
If we get on hands on such wealth and regain

There is no check and cross check balance
Rules are framed in haste and at once
Many loop holes in system to escape dragnet
How can we shape the nation and thus hangs the fate?

*Vasudhaiv… World…. Katumbkam….Family*

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
