The Third World Vision, India Is Still Lagging Behind - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

The third world strikes me
All of a sudden
And I think of my own country
In its all complexities and perplexities,
In terms of hardships and toils
Of the people,
Faced by them,
Going half-fed, half-clothed,
Living on footpaths,
Sleeping on the floor,
Population going beyond,
Touching the horizon,
No birth control
Unable to feed.

Bobby, Julie, Sony, the girls in goggles
Cannot give the picture
Of being modern and contemporary,
India is still backward and poor,
Lagging behind and languishing
Whatever say you
Showing the development graph,
See the literacy rate,
Life-style and say you,
What it is in India,
India is not what say you,
But a developing nation,
Growing and rising,
But not developed at all.
