    After reading this, I couldn't imagine not giving it a 10. The reference to the knot
    at the end was wonderful. That is exactly the way to put it.

    This is the effect of 'kali'! If we the great Indians can look inside and make efforts, we will see an India free from all the travails referred to! (Report)Reply

    A very poignant and striking poem - hard-hitting at our corrupt politicians who have robbed mother India and still continue to do so...

    Dear Sathya Narayana Ji
    A very timely well versed poem with a poetic concern and cry, which no body
    hears in India.We don't have freem as we are tied by isms of political stupidity.
    I think we need a secon Independance struggle.
    You are very correct in bringing out a beautiful poem.We need out freedom to say
    that 'FREEDOM IS MY/OUR BIRTH RIGHT'
    gOOD POEM A 10

    These are the days for money power and muscle power. The poor remain frustrated. The fanatics play havoc. Politicians have their pound of flesh.
    What poor helpless Mother India can do, if her children misbehave like this?
