FARMERS AND THE SANGH — Badri Raina

BADRI RAINA | Caravan Daily

 

You would think

That  farmers’ would be

The  Sangh Parivar’s first love,

Considering how they tend

The holy cow, and are

Custodians of Creation’s

Most pristine ambrosia,

Namely, cow’s urine.

 

You would think they

Would be beloved

Of the Sangh, considering

They live next to

Heaps of dung, which,as

You know , is therapeutic

 Of  the highest rung.

 

You would think

Farmer’s  to be prized

Offspring of Bharat Mata,

Given that they are the

Realm’s Ana Data.

And for being closest

To tradition which

Places custom above

The Constitution.

 

Think again.  The Sangh

Is not as unlettered

As you might assume: of all

India’s protagonists, the

Parivar knows best

Which side its bread

 Is buttered. Which

Is not with yokels of

The  hinterland, but

Smart money-spinners

Of the  Ambani-Adani brand.
