Ramdas Bhandarkar

[ME!] (Madikeri)

Desert tale

Where guns fired, daggers and swords shine
Where roaring planes pour bombs, shells fly,
Where men sacrifice virtues in the name religions,
Where thousand vultures fly merrily in mind's sky
Where roots are cut, buds are squeezed,
Valley of flowers now smell foul, decaying corpse
God's tears died in heat of violence fail to pour as rains,
Where raped flowers have no voice, fallen leaves rot
Where ugly fight for powers, to gain superiority

[Hata Bildir]
