Anna and Netas (Political leaders)


Anna on fast again to free India of corruption,
Netas unperturbed by his unending eruption;
We are supreme, they hoot,
Question not our right to loot,
Voters are so splintered, you can't cause any disruption.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Anna Hazare is an Indian social activist who has led movements to promote rural development, increase government transparency, and investigate and punish official corruption.

A Gandhian who believes in non-violence, he fasted last year to compel the government to bring an effective anti-corruption legislation so that errant politicians and bureaucrats could be punished. Foxy politicians made all the right noises but successfully stalled enactment.

He is on indefinite fast again, but this time, the ruling Congress party has not responded positively at all till now.

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,

Silent, and soft, and slow
