Can we resolve, Can we solve...


Running Pillar to Post,
Farm to Fork,
Shimla to Shillong,
defying definite demonstrations
and defining dualism,
reaching out for 
serendipity,
with an expression 
of a jingoist,
can we resolve
can we solve
without a thought of thee or we,
without a thought of 
my beloved university.

Having sybaritic sensibilities
in the times of austerity,
looks like condominium
in legally established frames 
and fabian,
showing 
unity in bio-diversity,
carrying the gravamen 
with an intent of hiatus,
can we resolve
can we solve
without a thought of thee or we,
without a thought of 
my beloved university.

Shuttling the shuttle 
to show power 
on a non-living entity,
poor feathered entity.
Shouting slogans of 
corruption,
unscrupulous, undisciplined,
spineless opportunists,
defining and redefining,
shifting and drifting,
loyalties,
commencing a state of Leviathan  
and behaving like a Philistine,
can we resolve
can we solve
without a thought of thee or we,
without a thought of 
my beloved university.



Ignoring trumped up platitudes, 
demonstrating bewildered behavior
with calculated loyalties and 
miscalculated outcomes.
Polarization in
my beloved association,
my beloved university
flimsy 
and at times
obdurate behavior
shall not take us anywhere. 

It is not mine,
it is ours,
a temple of learning
for me.
Let us all pray
for 
recrudescence, 
revival and restrain,
if we can,
yes we can.

(I am thankful to all those who used many of the words used in the poem in the eConversations in NEHUTA googlegroup in last few days, had it not happened, this poem would not have got its birth....thanx a lot for inspiring me)
