In the name of water…

Kindle the fire of hatred

Indians against Indians

Kindle the search for another identity

Still Indians vs Indians…

In the name of water..

Political aspirants, eager to fight for a cause
Fighting within a country that won it’s freedom through peace

A proud heritage…. ignored

In the name of water, in the name of religion, in the name of…

Anything,

Seek, pursue and garner attention

Your only leverage _ disruption and lawlessness.

No tolerance for disagreements, no tolerance for opinion

No patience for non-violence, no patience for peace

The wise ones ideating forms of protest and preaching To mobs that they cannot control

So you hit yellows and khakis

And Lo and behold, we woke up today and have the water that we seek

And the leaders that we don’t..

Yet, I am still thirsty…for sanity

I think.. I am still thirsty

I cannot drink the water from the river that flows red.

In the name of water…
