21st Century Sita - Poem by Neela Nath Das

Hi, Ram, don't get late,
With Ravan I have date.
Prepare soup for Lav and Kush,
O, give them also Orange juice.
Listen, don't nag over phone,
I'm busy bee and you're a lazy drone!
For shopping taking your debit card,
(then Ram pretends as if all words unheard)
Give your credit card, it's my right, Oye,
Hurry Ramu, otherwise, I'll apply 498 A.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Aswath's poem is my inspiration.

    It's a great read, very comical indeed! Ram and Sita are extremely idealistic mythological characters that no one can ever live up to. Let alone 21st century, I don't think such characters ever existed... (Report) Reply

    It is indeed so comical! ! But has the modern Sita 'risen' to this level? We are informed everyday through the media of the abduction stories of many Sitas by the lewd Ravanas! Ravana had the generosity to keep her in his palace, though to satisfy his whims. The modern Ravanas use her, mutilate her and throw her to the dumps! (Report) Reply

    Really, on perusing this poem I thought of Aswath's recent poem and when I came down to see the notes I had a broad smile ! Oh! What a wonderful imagination ! (Report) Reply
