The Mahatma is Back again!

Mahatma Gandhi is back again!
There is hope.
There is a future! 

He came

like a messenger
for peace, patience and posterity.
The withering skin,
weak bones
only an illusion, a disguise
for human perception.
The real man resides
within,
the knight in shining armour
willing to sacrifice all
for country,
for fight against callous corruption.
The spontaneous presence
of surging crowds –
men, women of all ages,
generation, communities
only confirmed the piety
of his precious cause.
The messenger for liberation
lived long ago
in the frail body of the strong Mahatma,
Today, he walks again-
the aam aadmi,
the man of the masses
Anna Hazare…..
Jai Hind!

    Dear Indra,

    Thanks. I hope this revolution brings about some real change and does not remain just a march, a procession….

  7. Great Shail. Anna achieved something dramatic. An issue which was being deferred for the last 40 yrs got a break through with his effort. If only we have more ‘Annas’ …….

    I know Hari. I do hope like you do that we have more Annas. But I sincerely hope that he gets to achieve what he has set out to and that is the welfare of the nation.

    Very true, Shail..never even imagined that this would happen in our life time.
    Nicely coined words..

  12. A good composition!

  13. Well, I mean, I’m with the movement but I wouldn’t go this far! 🙂

    By the way, if you ever need to debate some skeptics on the movement, have a look at my rebuttals to critics here: http://punditcommentator.blogspot.com/search/label/AnnaHazare (in particular, the articles on April 8 and April 11).

  14. Well compared… One of the few men who actually shook an entire nation…

    Hi Pundit.
    Its all about the emotion. Sometimes, just the intentions matter.
