Wonderful India - Poem by Dr. Yogesh Sharma

India is a wonderful nation,
Here Indians are insulted
But foreigners are respected,
Here Hindus are snubbed,
But minorities are nurtured.
Here patriots are offended,
But terrorists are flattered.
Here natives are hounded,
But intruders are welcomed.
Here honest are defeated,
But corrupt rule the nation.
Here merit is mocked,
But UN-meritorious gets quotas.
Here disciplined get intimidated,
But rogues roam fearlessly.
Here SRKs are above law,
But saints are booked.
Here justice is injustice,
And injustice is justice.
Here stone dargahas get cozy chaders,
But living souls roam naked in streets.
Here Sufi baba, pester, imams get trillions,
But aged parents die penniless.
Here secularism is communal-ism,
But communal-ism is secularism.

    Though the last lines are slightly confusing, the rest, we have to agree. Educated Indians are not educated properly and they are so scared of the next meal and they like to endure the pain, but the people on the street do not have voice, thought suffering is their way of living, still they come out everyday to show their displeasure. Yes we are fools, I agree with you Yogesh Sharma. (Report) Reply
