Charges, a poignant word
brimmed with an electric power.
that possesses a bitter venom
with a dual quality
that makes one pessimistic
and the other optimistic
who deems charges as challenges
towards an indelible fame.
Yes, the same charges in me
germinated fear and grief
reminding me of ‘marginalization’
that lingered in my memory
urged to recall the immortal fame
of the trio , the ever glimmering stars.
The three milestones are the touchstones
to my undaunted mind set,
an ever sinking star, Ambedkar’s
immortal work is Indian constitution
that ever glitters with an everlasting
indispensable and indelible contribution.
Another ,an immemorial unforgettable
evidence ,innocent Kanakadasa’s ardent
pious prayer evoked Lord Krishna’s favour
that magically turned the position of the divine
statue to bless the devotee,
and snubbed the indignant murmur
of the dissuaders forever.
One more, our Mahatma who was kicked out of the first
class compartment, for he was a black man
as he was charged by a white man
who provoked him to redeem
the black from the social marginalization.
Yes ,my mind speaks to me,
be contemptuous of the cynic
who can never be misanthropist
for he is a profound zealous scholar,
but it is he, the strong motivator
for me to undergo an ordeal
to sustain my spirit insoluble.
