still not a butterfly.

India's freedom was brought through ahimsa but after sixty years of India's freedom, the foundation of Ahimsa and humanity are no more existent.Violence is very much prevalent in the country. Very thought provoking, nicely written poem.

What a cool form for a poem; and you have certainly done justice here; both to the form and to the poem.
