This land is dying of its own accord;
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Neglected are the people working here;
To live without this pay, most can afford;
Who cares about the welfare of all dear?
When corrupt bosses come so very fast,
The lower-rungs are eaten by white-ants;
Not one is bent on rectifying past;
‘Mahouts are killed by temple elephants! ’
The innocents get tortured in the fray;
If God could send a savior very soon!
Perhaps, the Maker expects us to pray;
The sun gives day-light and for night through moon!
Even the rains won’t come in time these days!
Yet, God will salvage in His time and ways!
