Dirty Culture - Poem by V P Mahur

Often we talk of our rich culture
And ask the generations of future
To follow it with heart and soul
And to be proud of its trends all

But some things make me confused
For these trends are often abused
What are the things to be proud of
The things to be preached loud of

Should I follow the culture that teaches
To oppose the other religious preaches
To oppose the languages of others
To oppose the sentiments of all brothers

Should I feel proud of the culture
That treats the women like a minor
That harasses her in a brutal way
That is ready all the time to slay

That highlights the caste discrimination
That never cares for the respect of nation
That feels joy in smashing the weak
And deceiving others to reach the peak

If all these are good things of a culture
They will not create a human but a vulture
To be uncultured I would prefer
Before following such a culture

    This is not only in India, everywhere in the world the situation is same. But with due apology may I say that the evils that you rightly pointed out are not a part of culture. It is behavior. As far as culture is concerned I have no doubt that the culture South Asia is the best in the world. (Report) Reply
