Sunder And Sonati

The fascist beast is feral now
One snarl and
All of us sheep
Are cowed

Those who still dare
Dare to oppose
Dare to speak out
Dare to hold a different viewpoint
Are quickly disposed of

Umar Khalid
Varavara Rao
Anand Teltumbde
Young or old or in-between
Age is no barrier
Nor gender:
Sudha Bharadwaj
And these are lucky to be in prison
Gauri Lankesh
Govind Pansare
Narendra Dabholkar
M M Kalburgi
Are dead

Some day all these names
Will figure in
A roll of honour as
India's freedom fighters
