In Public Interest - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal
In public interest
What poets are supposed to perform?
Sit quiet and inform
The countrymen about helplessness
That no means are available to face?
Has he to write about nature?
Garden, moon and flowers
He has something more to devote
And plainly state
The terrorists are striking
Take the country at breaking point
Create fears in the minds of people
Create disharmony and foment the trouble
The poets are not weak
They can speak
Through powerful pen
As most striking weapon
If they prefer to be honest
And act in the best public interest
He can present it with appeal to masses
They can understand and need no classes
