Blindness With Perfection - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

The Great Asoka* tried
Napoleon Bonaparte too tried and failed
Asoka denounced world and adopted Buddhism
Such was appeal and remorse for humanism

Why and at what cost these empires?
Who know when life expires?
What is use of acquiring whole world?
When no soul is there to be told

Indian epics are full of such stories
Outlaw Valia* turned into saint Valmiki*
Many kings gave up kingdom and became sages
Let us go back to the old pages

The world has witnessed the holocaust of world war
Hiroshima and Nagasaki remained no more to witness stars
The population is still suffering from deformities
We have observed the outcome and its futilities

Whole of the Middle East is burning
The people are running
For life and searching safe refuge
We are in no position to refuse

Who shall open our eyes?
What shall be left for us?
The God shall not spare us for destruction
What sort of blindness we are trying with perfection?

Valia… name
