A Tree & a Bonsai

I, a Bonsai? 
O’ dear sweet li’l kid Am told you’re the one god lives in Or is it godliness?  Whatever,  Everyone says you are god’s gift  The believers & followers of god  should then be respecting you for what you are For the joys you bring For the liberty you symbolize  And for the purity that you embody With no biases No preconceptions No prejudices  And no ill wills 
Born in a free society So you are told How then did i become a conformist You wonder when as you grow old
The truth, my child Is that your freedom is limited to  The narrow boundaries drawn around  You are at liberty to run as much, But within this compound Stray even a little beyond  And we have labels in our pocket  We call you names  ‘coz we dunno what to do with you It’s our own limitation  But we’ll blame it on you

Open letter to Arnab `Go-Swamy'

Hey Arnab,

Hope this letter finds you shouting, yelling & sermonizing in the name of `fearless’ journalism and scolding your panelists and poodles (`independent', `reputed' journalists who must agree with you & help you get out of a tricky & sticky situation where you can't admonish your subjects in your typical style, if they have to get their pay-cheques released).

There is one thing that THE NATION CAME TO KNOW yesterday- That Arnab Goswami is an empty vessel that only makes LOUD, IRRITATING NOISES all the time. Yeah, I am talking about your cowardly act of making noise on ‪#‎RILGasScam‬ or ‪#‎AstonMartinCrash‬ and a total black-out of this most newsy development of our times! You find #‎USWoosModi‬ newsworthy and worthy enough to open your NOISEHOUR with this lame topic. Taking pity on you, I have conjured up some better `Noisehour’ `shout & scream’ topics.

Arnab, the nation wants to know (am shouting while writing this)-

1. Why no Indian woman has won …

Will You Ever Win this Race?
