Oh, Our Country!

2016-11-05         Student

Bangalore has been in the eye of the Cauvery storm. While the local public has been helplessly waiting to see what turn it takes, schools have really suffered with the number of unscheduled holidays because of the Bundh that had been called. Parikrma senior student Henginlin an orphan who came to us from Manipur 13 years ago and now is a Bachelor student of Law, expressed his frustration though this incredible poem.

Oh! Our country

What to call? Sensitive?

When our country is inactive

“Oh don’t be, too negative”.

But it’s true, we’re all active

To make our country disconnective,

And we end up being fugitives.


Acting hastily out of feeling guilty

Bragging harshly about honesty,

Dragging harmony towards purgatory

Answering freely solutions empty,

Impossible humanity made vain sanity

My country oh our country


Roads are blocked across the street

It blocks the path for a greet,

An aim to achieve hard to meet:

Limited knowledge turns to greed.

An empty stomach hard to keep,

Easy for the blade to run deep


Schools get closed, classes are dry

Lessons not learnt for kids to try

How can there be progress if all we do is cry

For a better tomorrow, but are shy

To take a stand, to sacrifice and try?


Don’t tell me when to sleep

My share in nature is all I need.
