Its about how i feel about my country's social and political scenario.

mirror mirror

Equality is a figment of imagination,
Law and order are the cynosure of derision;
The judiciary has lost it's integrity,
Justice is on sale in the markets of enormity.
Women are ravaged in the abyss of brutality,
Male chauvinism is society's bitter reality.

Corruption is the mother of black money;
Common man eats sugar while the politician licks honey,
Rich thrive in the cocoon of luxury;
Poor lie famished in the bins of penury.

Sovereign,socialist,secular,democratic republic;
The bold words of the Preamble strike as ironic.
Bloody sword with religion as a shield,
Humanity dies every day in the communal battlefield.
The nation is in pain and seeks retribution ;
Not a blood-bath but resurgence of revolution!!


Justice, Nation, Revolution
