Romance Of An Intellectual - Poem by Ratnakar Mandlik
Intellectuals are gifted with supernatural power
Of justifying their espousal even of convenience
Even with ideas n principles they accept never
Though it may cause breach of their conscience.
Every ruler may he be despot or gem of governance
Requires his pack of intellectuals to impart guidance.
They project the ruler n his system as egalitarian
Adroitly they can do it by dividing whole population.
As an exception to the rule are diehard intellectuals
Who may prefer extinction for beliefs and principles.
They are though sidetracked by cunning brethren
Who overshadow them with fractured perceptions.
History has often witnessed intellectual's pliability,
Despotic rules in '75 had shattered his integrity.
