A Person Non-Grata - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal
I am person non-grata for the activities carried on
Not by state for illegal activities but for good work done
But by my own people for delivering good
As I was coming in their way and solidly stood?
It is birth right to stand for real freedom
Not by thoughts but for action with wisdom
There is no use of sending people to face bullets
The war has to be won over by only ballets
I have nothing to loose but nothing gain too
It has been know fact and very true
Many forewarned me of dire consequences
I was still prepared for any bad sequences
Many futile attempts were made on me physically
I was not at all against them basically
There was wide ranging difference in approach
I was not at all preferred to them as coach
There are deliberate clashes in defined areas
There complete unawareness for repeated pleas
It has been taken as weakness and cowardice act
We can only use only possible means to react
No one should seriously take on struggle
They are for peaceful agitation and unarmed people
What do we do to strengthen their peaceful cause?
Can’t they think positive and maintain relative pause?
How many may be prepared to shed their lives?
Who will honestly make attempt or seriously strive?
This is not for one man to think or decide
The perceptional difference is very wide
Let us build a healthy union
Make all the attempts for good lien
Let us build it together as one force
No ill feelings, bitterness or remorse
