These Are The Things We Could Talk About – Raghav G. Nair

Poverty In IndiaThese are the things we could talk about

for instance; rising prices; inflation;

non-availability of food grains, things

we could build our theses upon; poor

children in the streets, hunger like acid

burning down their tongues, our country-

green fast disappearing, the morning sun

coming out from somewhere among the denuded trees

like love betrayed. Other things happened around us;

The cries of our women and children still fresh from

behind the cold walls

of partition. So much more.

The woods are lovely dark and deep.

But we would rather look away,

give a good to ransom, Quietly forget,

that bloody country with clipped wings

flying out of Nehru’s hands.

∼ Raghav G. Nair
