If Rafale is in Truth to Be… Badri Raina


BADRI RAINA | Caravan Daily


Now we are to tell this Court

How the deal was made,

How the price was computed,

How Anil Ji made the grade.


If the Court will thus enquire

Into Executive considerations,

How may this Bharat outsmart

Wily enemy nations?


Once for all we must decide

If Courts and the Constitution

Will this Republic run,

 Or the Messiah newly born.


Due process, democracy —

Conceal a conspiracy;

Mere law and order will not help

Us demolish Nehruvian legacy.


Sentiments and crony aid

And a Hindu King to boot—

This must be the talisman

If the Republic we would uproot.


If Rafale is in truth to be

Pushpak incarnate,

Petty-fogging probity

Must spare the Sanatan State.
