The ongoing tragedies caused
By humans do not get, from most,
A line in the poetry of poets,
A page in the writings of writers,
A focus in the meditation of meditators
A reflection from saints or preachers
A discern from political scientists
A statement from film heroes.
And all the educated professionals
Who are mum,
While human catastrophes pass by
Only with the apathetic
And callous remark
“This is all politics.”
-Promod Puri
