PROF BADRI RAINA | Caravan Daily 


 

The Bard turned in his grave,

And wondered why of all

Places in India where he was

Loved most, a host of  ancient

Ghosts should so trample

Into ignominy the most

Devoted of his lovers, Romeo,

Who had eyes but for one

Woman in all the world.

How may he know that India’s

Fall into unloveliness ordains

That  Romeo should have

No eyes at all.  That privelege

Must belogn only to gods

And deities  who frolick  with

Spiritual point with sundry maties.

However one tries, these are

Not times for  truth or reason.

Where ignorance is bliss

It is indeed folly to be wise.

As brains become muscle,

Fists are the only enterprise.
