Indian Bureaucrats - Poem by Abhinav Baruah

Educated but knowledge obsolete
The day I became bureaucrat
By vaulting from proletariat
No, I believe myself to be an aristocrat

Pinch of life lurks in the red ribbon files
Life of common citizens
Life of disabled children
Phew.....
Life can be purchased and sold

There's a job beyond life
The job I have to accomplish tomorrow

    Hello,
    Good enough, a lot of hints generated from your discontent. Lot of meaningful things said if one reads between the lines.

    'Life can be purchased and sold

    There's a job beyond life
    The job I have to accomplish tomorrow' yes I agree.

    One little correction I found, please read it again and may think of it. That is change the word 'disable' to 'disabled', hope you wanted to mean that na?

    Gautam
