Long long ago in Bharat khanda..
A prince died..
Along with him died a lover, a husband, a brother.
And a Purushottama was crowned..
Chakravarthi Raghupathi Ramachandra.
While Siyaavar Rama lay buried..
Along with his weakness and vanity.
Not so long ago in Hindustan..
A struggler died..
Along with him died a husband, a father, a leader.
And a Mahatma was born..
Father of the Nation.
While frail Mohandas lay buried..
Along with his self-centered and short-sighted streaks..
Today in India..
Many light diyas – to remember Purushottama Ramachandra’s victory,
While some hate his hypocrisy.
Many take their children to school half-naked – to remember Mahatma Gandhi’s birth,
While some frown at his eccentric experiments.
None notice the gruesome murders of Rama & Mohandas..
Cause of Death : Deification.
Modus Operandi : Forced removal of human flaws.
Who next? Anna Hazare?
