Where Has Nonviolence Hidden? Poem by Ramesh T A

Where Has Nonviolence Hidden?

Father of nonviolence, Mahatma Gandhi is no more in the world;
He is not only father of nation but also father of nonviolence;
Transcending his own nation he has make his mark in the world;
Today we pay homage to him on his day of remembrance everywhere!

In the violent world today, if you follow nonviolence, you will
Be nowhere in no minutes after being made into nonentity by the
Perpetrators of extremism, terrorism and wars in the world sure!
This is the status quo of the world in which we are living now!

Indifferent bureaucrats administrating the affairs of the world,
Only inhuman, money minded, greedy men do all businesses ever
Exploiting technology and natural resources for their benefit
And profit caring nothing about pollution, nuclear proliferation!

Is this called civilization of modern world we label as progress?
What is the difference between man and machine in this world of
Competition against time that is going on to fulfil targets ever?
Hardcore terrorists taking advantage of weapons destroy world..!

Both so called civilized and savage clash between themselves to
Mould the world as they like and proceed on endless war as it was
A daily routine during the Vietnam war time in the past world...;
That kind of stage the world is driven to before falling into abyss!

Art, Nature and humanism are out of order now needing resuscitation
Before a major operation has to be carried out to remedy the chronic
Illness by pumping oxygen of goodness and love of human culture to
Breathe deep so as to reach normalcy of health sooner or later sure!
