! Gandhi Jayanthi - Poem by Rema Prasanaa

Where can I find you Bapuji
your simple smile and true words
Where should I go in search of humans
in Porbandhar or Sabarmathi
Where can I take in hand the salt
of freedom emerged from the
shores of Dandi....
Where can I see kindness
when wisdom is only a pretend
of power to distort and demean
Where can I find Bapuji
your sanctity of straight vision
wherein a world paints hues of choice
on Dharma, blackened truth
disfifgured and kept on a pyre
to burn and die
Where can I find you Bapuji...
your simple wisdom which really
justifies the word wisdom...

(UN decided to observe October 2nd as International Non Violence day. Applicable to humans and not for the ones who tamper in others life and assasinate humanity)

    its more than a tribute
    its a wake up call to the present world
    engulfed in the dusty fumes of war
    these golden virtues are very near yet far
    thanks for reviving them thru' your poem
