Death certificate

Air has got fever 

No vaccine

It can’t breathe

No oxygen

Where is the way to hospital?

No vaccancy

Then, what is there in this country?

Sages are there..

Casanova’s are there

There are god’s who listen to them

There is the pomp of Kumbhamela 

Electio’s land mine is there

Country is full of patients

There are piles of corpses

In the sacred Ganges

Votes are there

Positions won by votes are there

Religions, caste,


More than this

Which gives life to man

Which kills in instalments

The only one business

Don’t ask that

Where are the humans?

This is the dying season

Of business conspiracy

Flowing like tides

Don’t worry about


Now the one thing

This country can give is

Death certificate only

Also read: Count it as…!
