When That Day Will Dawn? - Poem by Ramesh T A

Diwali! What is it and why is it celebrated so lavishly every year?
It is the celebration of the Death Anniversary of Demon Narakasura,
The incarnation of All Evils in toto in the legendary age of the world!
Corruption, dowry, unemployment, poverty, ignorance and disease are
The Evils need to be eliminated for celebrating Diwali……. soon…..!

Commission called corruption is paid for any job to be done today
Whether to get admission for education or job in the govt. institution.
Such a demand there is in all walks of life due to population… that…..
Quality, honesty, sincerity are all thrown away as obsolete escutcheon.
Simply fair or foul, nothing is impossible by corruption in this world;
By this Evil politicians exploit people before and after the Elections;
Believing them people too vote them to power only to be deceived!

Since long domination of male over female is there till today;
Dowry system is the evil that degrades the whole of woman race
And that makes women folks a life long bondage to men in marriage;
Women as the mother earth are born to bear but not foolishnesses;
Women folks keeping this in mind should mould the modern world.

Wrong planning and over population keep unemployment eternal,
Putting youths, educated or uneducated in despair and desolation;
They out of fear of the future get excited, restless and unreleased;
Not knowing what to do next they seek for some asylum in vain;
And to get peace of mind they easily succumb to drug culture,
From where there is no escape to anyone but only in death!

Poverty is acute where population is high and development is poor;
Superstition and ignorance put people forever in misery and poverty;
Poverty is the last stage of the border line to the death of eternity,
Where on millions make the tight rope walk between life and death,
And hue and cries are heard everyday without a solution to find yet;
Even then days are pulled on though poverty persists beyond limit!

An old saying says, “Ignorance is bliss! ”
But a recent saying says, “Ignorance is sin! ”
Bliss or sin, ignorance certainly makes one a slave;
An ignorant person may be independent but psychologically a slave!
Mass ignorance makes politicians easy to exploit for staying in power;
Of all, ignorance is the root cause for all problems and diseases;
So, unless ignorance is squarely eliminated no progress is possible.

Disease leading to quick death is the end for all the evils;
Of all the causes, the most inexcusable one is ignorance.
To cure but not accrue disease drugs and drinks are used,
But for kick to knock out worries many lick liquors beyond limit,
And often not satisfied go to drugs and fall ill wholly forever;
So, physical and psychological diseases need serious treatments;
Spiritual healing too is needed to bring enlightenment to the ill.

For better future, the evils have to be destroyed by the Almighty;
But brightness comes to one only after profound meditation in Him;
only when that state is achieved darkness will be fully driven out!
So, friends celebrate Diwali keeping that in mind to achieve that!
