I Love My India - Poem by Nalini Jyotsana Chaturvedi

And the neighbours just stood by
Watching me being dragged as I cried
Now not a single spineless soul
Comes forward to say
That they did see it all

    'I Love My India' becomes a cliche every now and then. There is no sympathy or compassion left for a fellow Indian- a girl, a boy, an aged person who gets tortured or brutalised by goons or anti-social elements. TV reports are replete with such incidents. People are more interested to make a video recording rather than to offer any help on the spot. This is a powerful commentary on our society. The poem goes into MyPoemList. Thanks. (Report)Reply

    None has the mental strength to protest, to stand beside a person in problem.This happens in my life too.This is our country and these are our countrymen.A nice poem. (Report)Reply

    the muscle power, political power terrorize people to such an extent. In closed door gatherings every one talk tough. when confronted with reality all will vanish! (Report)Reply

    This is how Indians are. Women are raped, children abused, women suffer from domestic vIolence....and the onlookers just have fun. Who will get involved for it's not their family. Even the best of friends pretend that they do t even recognise you (Report)Reply
