    There is indeed so much wisdom and truth here. A trap is a trap, a cage is a cage, no matter how attractive or alluring it may seem. A brilliant work. (Report) Reply

    I remember my university days (In an Indian University) . During election campaign of 1964 Pandit Jawaharlal Nehrue came to Gorakhpur. According to schedule he addressed the students. A barrier was there in between Pandit Ji and the students. Pandit Ji disliked it. He said, I don't know whether I am in a cage or these students are in the cage, remove it. Your poem helped me to recollect that great moment when I saw a true leader. (Report) Reply

    A cage is a cage. Glittering, self made or barbed wire, it restricts (Report) Reply

    Truly, a cage of gold or so, glittering or so, is worthless as freedom is worthfull and everything. (Report) Reply
