Words Spoken And Not - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

Inner voice, sacrifice, you may quote,
Quote that I care no chair, let them note,
(Sotto voce) :
Let someone warm the chair,
A turban of thorns wear,
Haply who dances to my remote!
__________________________________________
The veil is lifting at last. First it was Sanjay Baru,
Who exposed truth in his book, ‘The Accidental
Prime Minister’; and now it is Natvar Singh shedding
light on the remote control that was. Forget the
halo carefully created; forget ‘inner voice’, and
the air of renunciation and sacrifice. A case it was
of power without accountability. Sure, better a king-
maker to be than king.

This limerick imagines what the lady at the helm might
have thought through in her mind—sotto voce and
aloud.
