A Fortunate Waiting...


Being Too Honest Is An Utter Offence,
But Efficacies Always Get Bribed By Them,
Where Bureaucrats Play Dumb Charades,
Public’s Sciolism Generates Titanic Business.
Democracy When Squelches The Second Sex,
Communal Aphorisms Wink At The Manfulness,
& Blind Judiciary Lags Behind Yama’s Stopwatch.
When Culture & Custom Whispered Death Sentence,
Religion & Education Became Another Good Profession.
Now Bundle Of Gandhi’s Can Buy Love & Motherhood,
& Respect Gets Biased To Mere Supremacy & Reputation.
Amidst All, Where I Struggle To Embody A Ray Of Hope,
I Still Pray & Wait For That Innocent Chuckle To Happen...

  4. Honesty should depend on situational circumstances. Being too honest may not work well for everyone. :)

  7. Good Job Sreedev. I really like the line " Now bundles of Gandhi's can buy love and motherhood" The system all around us has demoralized to such an extent that it frustrates us immensely. Then we all hope for that ray of light to shine some day.
