Power And Arrogance Poem by Rajan T Renganathan

Power And Arrogance

Rating: 5.0

They say ' Vinaash kaale vipareet buddhi'
A rough translation in English would be:
When one's destruction time is soon to arrive,
one thinks un-intelligently or negatively.
And today's world is filled with such leaders
Look at any country; its leaders are eager
to demonstrate their power.
Aggression has become today's mantra.
To stamp their authority they do what is not feasible,
and their arrogance is seen in every actions they take.
With due deference, what Robert Frost said
This world will either end in fire, or in ice.
I would like to say: No, it won't in either way, but, will certainly
will end because of power and arrogance and greed to
show who rules the roost.

Wise people are they who belive in simplicity and truthfulness. They are very down to the earth! Ego does not find any space in their pure mind. Society respects them for their simplicity and humbleness. A brilliant poem!

To stamp their authority they do what is not feasible...yes, such kinds of people are there who are egoistic and self-centred and they never think for a while that they are going to carry nothing with them once they die.
