Hooch Is The Killer Poem by Rajnish Manga

Hooch Is The Killer

Rating: 5.0

Nearly 120 people have died recently
Most of them had gone to mourn
The death of a relative In Kashipur
They took hooch, it consumed their lives.

Bootleggers clandestinely & illegally
Distilled, marketed and consumed
Mostly in impoverished localities
Infested with diabolic syndicates

It's not the first time or the last
We've seen it happen many a time
Due to administrative Callousness
and collusion or political backing

Trap these villains who for dirty lucre
Kill innocents and ruin their families.

A criticism of bootleggers and hooch which someone had to make. It is tempting to seek out cheap alcohol, not knowing that it is toxic. It is like a tragedy for the buyers.

Such mass deaths have become a common affair! How many innocent people lured by the addiction of liquor fall into the trap of bootleggers! This has happened many times in Kerala especially among the fisherfolk! They look for cheap liquor without taking into account its poor quality! Toxic ingredients are added callously and people die or become blind or get maimed for life! The bootleggers destroy the younger generation through the sale of illegal drugs! A great poem cautioning the people!

You have really made a very objective assessment of the situation and have brought to fore the factors responsible for its spread mostly in economically backward class people. My sincere thanks to you, Valsa ji.

You are right, Indira ji. Despite stringent laws & administrative machinery in place, there is lack of concerted efforts on the part of concerned authorities. Vested interests, too, would do anything to block all such efforts. General awareness and education can save innocent people from becoming victims of this scourge. Thanks a lot for sharing your supportive views.

Thanks for expressing your deep concern over the tragedy. In another tragic incident about 145 people have died during the last one week in the Eastern Indian state of Assam due to consuming deadly hooch. It is unfortunate that these things are happening without any let up.

The incident makes me sad..we must make our country drug-free and alcohol-free.. people are also helpless..they have to toil and suffer a lot..poor people drink alcohol to get rid of physical and mental pressure.. In this time Spirituality should be spread everywhere..if people gather to sing, dance and meditate they will need no drug to escape from reality..

You have nicely summed up the entire situation and what should be an ideal stand-point. Spirituality and involvement in cultural activities may wean them away from the lure of drinking liquor. Yes, this is a plausible way out. Thanks a lot.
