When the ongoing tragedies of human sufferings do not get

A line in the poetry of poets,

A page in the writings of writers,

A stroke of the brush in the paintings of painters,

A focus in the meditation of meditators,

A stay in the minds of yoga practitioners,

A reflection of a sermon of a priest,

A statement from the film world’s bigwigs

And all others mum and mute

while the human catastrophes pass by

With the apathetic and callous remark

“This is all politics.”

-Promod Puri
