Oh God , I am the one who is wrong
(Based on a pretty write up by my friend Sri vasu Iyengar in tamil.Thanks to him for making me realize , my mistakes)
I said , I was leading a life .
As per God’s will and they ask me,
Have you ever seen God ,
And when did he tell you about his will.
I said that the society has many ills ,
And there is a need to reform them.
Have you carried out all those reforms ,
In your own home and in your family, they asked
I said there is a need to clean the environment,
And I stopped people from throwing rubbish on roads,
And they told me , WE want to keep our home clean,
If you do not want , we will put all this in your home
When I stared at neighbour’s ynmarried daughter,
Going almost dress less along with some gent ,
Who did not appear to me of decent sort , they tell me,
Do not stare with evil eye and please let others enjoy life.
When I stopped a car on the road coming with great speed,
Overtaking on left and that to coming on right instead of left ,
They told me , “granpa , these are all none of your business,
And if you want to be safe , do not follow any of these silly rules.”
When some one whose only job was troubling others ,
Comes with an artificial smile during election , to ask for vote,
If I poing out to the person , all that need to be done in my locality,
My locality people ask me to shut up as the person seeking vote is influential.
When I went to the provision store and pointed out ,
That everything is adulterated , that owner laughed at me,
And told , “You are the only person who does not seem,
To be adulerated and if you insist , none of us would get food.
