One vote, One value:
In the middle of the night
Tell this to a burning raped corpse of a Dalit girl
Of the people, By the people, For the people:
In the deep pit of Brahmnical gutters
Tell this to the suffocated sanitation worker
Liberty, Equality, Fraternity:
In the casteist citadels of universities
Tell this to the subalterns
To write and gulp it down their throat
Let them dance to their death song
Adult franchise and frequent elections:
Tell this to the people kept part apart
Tell this to all the offences in atrocity act
Huh, What is democracy?
Any of the above?
Baba warned the lovers of democracy
All the definitions of Democracy mean nothing
If first not aimed to
“Dislodge the governing class from its position; to prevent it from remaining as a governing class for ever.”
