Nirbhaya’s India on July 30th, 2012

That the gatecrasher was an artiste from Bangalore;

How she got there no one quite cited.

But her father’s apologized for all the furore,

Explaining she was merely a bit too excited.

But another breakdown looms quite scarily:

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation,

Instead of concerning itself with regulation,

Has been flirting with the very airlines airily.

Using their positions for personal gain,

Conflict of interest without an ounce of shame,

From airlines these officials sought favours,

Jobs and licenses for their sons and daughters.

The old proverb comes to haunt and to give grief,

That only the one who’s caught is called a thief.

 

 

This is what happens with strange bedfellows.

Now Ramdev was bonding hugely with Modi.

So the relationship with Team Anna sees new lows,

As Ramdev fools around the country senselessly.

But Nitish Kumar is deadly serious,

About opposing FDI – yes you guessed – in retail.

The obvious reasons, forget the details.

But the Congress is calm and far from furious.

But Raj Thackeray’s MNS is always angry.

This time a film unit faces the gravity,

Of not allowing an MNS man into a private road,

Where the shooting was on in with equipment and load.

Twenty MNS fellows vandalized 14 vehicles.

When will we all be free of their crude cackles?

 

 

But in this sea of corruption and administrative piss,

There are those who stand firm holding their own.

One of them Prithviraj Chavan, Maharashtra CM is

A man who admiringly withstands it alone.

Braving the likes of the NCP and former CMs,

He manages to without bending, stand,

Exposing them all, yet not forcing his hand.

Am sure he will bring to justice these gems.

Like in Bihar too there is Nitish Kumar,

Who has changed the very notion of Bihar.

Somehow is there a new breed of non-inheritors,

Wait, are we really now seeing some genuine reformers?

Never occurred earlier, the thought is quite sudden,

May be there really is some hope, not all is rotten?

Those reading ‘Nirbhaya’s India’ for the first time would do well to read the ‘Foreword’ and ‘She hands over the baton’
