Karma Cola

Krishna's powerful principle of positive action
Has been polluted as a 'karma cola' of misty fiction
It is scientific law of cause and effect applied to human life
Value based dispassionate action is 'Bhagwad Geeta's key injunction.

By extending it to a series of birth and rebirth
It has robbed it of punch and urgency of present action
Karma cola has de-humanized us and damned millions of unfortunates by their very birth
Call it casteism or racialism or indifference to people trappe
