Borders - Poem by Queeny Gona

The so called Traders:
Ignited us with the fire of 'Divide and rule'
In those days...
Leaving the blood shed riots at the borders till date!
The selfish leaders using the same
Stirred the minds of innocent,
With the notion 'Pratyeka Telangana'
Made victims of present Chaos!
Is not this rat race for position?
If not, pay tribute to Constitution;
Upholding Unity in Diversity!

    An insightful depiction of diverse ethnic groups pitted against each other by self leaders fuelled by putrid sludge of iniquity, nicely written with conviction. Thanks for sharing Queeny and do remain blessed. (Report) Reply

    You pack so much meaning into a few sentences. I feel your living pulse, beating heart and It's your gift. And, I wanted to let you know again how much I enjoy your strong pulse and a beating heart writing. It's a gift I am left awestruck by. (Report) Reply

    Well penned against the policy of divide and rule, against those who divide people and nation for their selfish end. (Report) Reply

    Struggles for peace and unity are universal. I love how your mind works and feel like a brother in the struggle for a world of cooperation and love rather than competition and jockeying for position. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Striking. But my ignorance leaves me without full understanding of the situation there. I am sorry for that. My immediate thought is that it must be a civil unrest sort of thing - bringing oppression some how. If so then I am sorry for that too. Lovely poem... (Report) Reply

    Hurrah! I belong to Andhra Pradesh, I am from Telangana, I love Telangana and know that injustice has been done to that part of the state. Yet, I don't feel disgusted about this political hungama of statehood as none is committed to it yet they wag their tales for their games and again! A smash poetry! Love this one! (Report) Reply

    I fully agree with you Queeny. Your reference to the British Colonial regime, who inculcated in us their selfish strategems is very appropriate. (Report) Reply
