In Goa - Fifty Years As An Mla And As A Politician - a True Feat, Mr.Rane!

My Goa so full of dedication to politicians
my Goa so full of devotion to politics;
my Goa so full of politicians and ministers
my Goa so full of nepotism and affection;
my Goa so full of traditions and customs
my Goa so full of elections and ballots;
my Goa so full of citizens and supporters
my Goa so full of patience and endurance;
my Goa votes and re-elects the same ministers
my Goa so full of same politicians and same ministers;
my Goa reconfirms loyalty and faithfulness to politicians
my Goa keeps voting for the same leaders to keep them
in power for umpteen years;
my Goa knows the same old ministers will re-appear
in every election
my Goa knows the same ministers will re-book
and reinforce their constituencies with future promises;
my Goa and Goan children know the names of all ministers,
my Goa has children named after ministers with a hope that they will also be ministers in their own lifetime;
my Goa has households where children have been even named after ministers or have pet names of ministers,
my Goa and Goan children even remember watching the same ministers come to their schools to do the flag hoisting;
my Goa has ministers who have reigned for fifty years
my Goa feels proud when our ministers have
political involvement thro their lifespan;
my Goa respects ministers as if they are rulers of our state
my Goa has neighbourhoods where posters of ministers
have lasted forever;
my Goa has neighbourhoods where ministers have remained as ministers since my own childhood,
my Goa has cities where ministers will remain ministers until they are old, older and oldest;
my Goa has households where even our grandchildren can easily identify the same ministers as they have been constantly appearing on television for so many years,
my Goa will have town and cities which will have the same ministers as ministers for the next half a century;
my Goa and goans will rise to comment and complain, criticize and condemn every and any minister,
my Goa will still go and vote for the same minister
and same government again without any hesitation;
my Goa and goans compelled to enjoy watching democracy in autocracy all thro?
my Goa and goans, compelled to enjoy watching autocracy
in democracy all thro?
my Goa and Goans always full of sincerity and simplicity
even in monsoons and summers, I assure;
my Goa and Goans always full of gratitude and gracefulness even in politics and friendships, I reiterate.
In Goa - Fifty Years As An Mla And As A Politician - 
a True Feat, Mr.Rane!
POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Note: Mr Rane is 82 years old and still in politics. Bravo! A Big Thank You to Mr. Rane for his dedication to Goa and Goan political field. But with this poem, I request the President of India to rectify the Constitution and allot a tenure to the elected ministers, which should not exceed two terms as chances should be given to younger generations to uphold equal opportunities and to bring greater contribution to our society.
