Cracking A Hard Nut Now! - Poem by Ramesh T A

A community of people that has migrated to a final place
After many migrations in the past for thousand years or so,
Cannot have an identity of their own language and culture
Due to merge with that of the main society they live with!

After economic and social developments, establishment of
Their separate identity by language and culture still remains
As a distant dream like the runner up in any competition we
All aware of in the world whether it's a beauty or sports race!

Extinct of language and culture of many an old races has become
History as they were not cherished and followed by mass support
Due to foreign powers' invasions and establishment of their own
Languages and cultures sure in many countries of the world long!

Reviving old language and culture from private to public use is
Indeed a Herculean endeavour similar as cracking a hard nut now!
