Manglu-Farmer - Poem by Gajanan Mishra
Manglu- a farmer
Resident of village Tamiaa,
In Patnagarh Block of Odisha,
Hanged himself yesterday evening.
Manglu was in debt,
And he was not able to
Maintain his family
Conisting of his old parents
Aged about eightysix and
Seventynine, wife and two
School going children.
Maglu was there to grow
Rice, pulses, almond, maize,
Sesamum, mustard etc etc.
Manglu is no more now,
Think a while, my dear friends,
Forgetting politics and
The steps of Government officials,
I am writing this fact
In simple wording of prosaic theme
Just to make you understand
Our own position here at this time,
If we are here to do something!
