Even coercive retaliation is not uncommon. Cartoonists have been sent to prison. While democracy flourished with a smile, it got emaciated with intolerance and frown.''

Best Poem of Prasanna Mishra

Bedecking them
With garlands
of those
Whose prayers
He had not answered

Yet I believed
When you said
They do

God does not answer
I had realised
Yet I believed
