The Great Indian Tamasha

Ironically the venue                                              
of it all
was a Ramleela maidan

the stage was set
the self-proclaimed hero
the demonised villains
and the innocent foot soldiers.

On a sleepy summer night
the adversaries came calling

The hero managed
a partial undercover escape

the footsoldiers
dispersed as autumn leaves
still waited for divine intervention.

the foolish ministers
wrote an epic for
an opponent.

The Great Indian Tamasha is still on.
