Objectivity In Writing - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
In the guise of changing social ills,
On a caste or religious community,
The writers should not cast a slur
and be engaged in character assassination.
If they do not mention the specific caste,
no one has reason to build tension.
If the author quotes ways to end the ills,
then all of them will applaud him.
People should also behave like humans.
They shouldn’t be preys to the tricks of those
Who hold kangaroo-courts with political clout.
It is hard to heal the rifts of castes
as the demi-gods in politics treat them as the vote-banks.
It is a mystery difficult to comprehend,
When the Pandavs were said to be the sons of gods,
the brave ruling castes of the past kept calm
without beating Vyasar or the ghost writers in open.
People hurt the poor folks who spend sleepless nights
for cooking up a story and bringing out a book.
The people who hurl stones for wheezing or sneezing,
meditate deep closing their eyes at the loot of granites,
adulteration of milk, paddy and demand of bribes for jobs.
