Plough A Cry - Poem by vidyut chakraborty

In ancient India, Kanad the scientist, invented edible seeds
he was punished by the King
to collect his daily rations from the bran of rice
and he did it at night so he was named Owl look.

Vedas and Upanishads worshiped Food so created the godess Luxmi.
It was an Indian contradiction.

Nowadays edible seeds are corporative,
system compels uses of chemical ferilizer, pesticides, and seed,
No one dares to turn his back to organics.
Multi-crop lands can not be sold to Industrialist,
It is a sin.

Farmers were overwhelmed with a good crop
and a saviour of cropped lands.
Land is there, crops are there, none is there to buy.
Once again the Kanads in the harvested lands searches
cotton rice or tobacco, are committing suicides;
the King is here unseen.
India is self content in food, its export deal is high
India is ahead in science,
its peasants can not buy.
Vedas and Upanishads worshiped Food so created the goddess Luxmi.
It was an Indian contradiction.
