The selfless Fakir

 Every once in a while......











Every once in a while
They kill you- 
In cold blood 
In the face of truth
Without a heart 
Your goodwill-
Is shunned
At the altar
Of ambitious dreams
What were you thinking?
A gratitude ingrained;
Selfless sacrifices
For whose sake?
 

They murdered you
To prove their point
Now they rule
The ungrateful lot.


Every once in a while
Your truth
Your desires
Are measured
In reams of papers
Tarnishing your image
To suit their goals.
There are a few-

Who believe in truth
Behind bar they sloth
Manning,Assange
Snowden they named
The apostles
 

And your blood-
Banish you from their thoughts
Blaming you for the fight
To free them
From the clutches
Of a slaved existence..

It pains me to see, the way people are forgetting the goodness of a man,who is being considered a role model to a number of great leaders across the world. He doesn't deserve the brickbats.

  1. Yes, looking at the state of affairs today one wonders whether the Mahatma's sacrifice was in vain. Loved the way you put down your thoughts.

  3. Beautiful and fitting tribute to Bapu and how ruthless&vile men and women are exploited the name and sacrifice of the father of the nation. I wonder whether the end is approaching and he must wonder whether his sacrifice is in vain. The world has gone mad and we get furious at such mentality.
