Ekalaivan

This note comes as a consolation:

                 You can do a lot of things
                 With your left hand.
                 Besides, fascist Dronacharyas warrant
                 Left-handed treatment.

                 Also,
                 You don’t need your right thumb,
                 To pull a trigger or hurl a bomb.

  1. Truly amazed by your angst.

    Do you somewhere identify yourself with Arundhati Roy?

    I’d love to say you are Arundhati Roy of verse.

    Nice poems.

    The religious/mythological imagery disturbs me. Maybe a healthy, homeopathic type of Marxist doze might do a world of good to broaden your horizons.

    All in good faith.

  3. Well versed one.
