MAHASHWETA CHATURVEDI

MAHATMA GANDHI

O Mahatma Gandhi,
You loved non-violence
But the people like violence,
You bought for the Nation
Without any sword,
People quarrel with each other
For their selfish motives,
You were not blind
To pains and pangs
Trials and turbulations
Of the entire humanity
But all are dumb and blind
To the sighs of the mankind
You were lotus,
The people are the tank
Of the mud of hatred,
Hence you are ignored,
Let us come out of the bunkers
Of narrow thinking and ego
To understand you
Without losing logic and reason
That can impart grace, good will
And sincere smile to the life.
