हादसा

हादसा Hindi Poem on Emergency 1977

Accident

(from “The Burning”)

Two months ago

The country was admitted

To the Emergency Ward

For a grievous wound,

Some grave danger!

The wound is deep

A head injury

An imminent coma

No one knows

What the recovery will be

Will the patient escape unharmed

Or be transferred to the mental ward?

 

Must have been a frightful accident

That the whole nation

Was admitted

Must barely have escaped death

Or was it the wrath

Of Ma Kali instead?

 

Jai Mata Di!

Jai Kali Di!

Sheran Vali Di!

Jai to her who lives in mansions!

Feasts on Venison!

Jai Hind!
