Killing Softly

Posted on: July 30, 2012


You had been searching for me

While I was waiting for you

An iconic moment in Indian Cinema

A megastar is born

Twiddling biris in his mouth

Would the scene linger in your mind?

Had our hero been of a gentler kind

On onscreen smoking

Minister play moral police

Cry hoarse

Blow out that smoke

Ignoring small-time vendors that would go broke

Statutory warning is plastered

Passive smokers fall prey

Active smokers fall prey

To the debilitating addiction

Kicking is difficult

Keeping is injurious…

  • Subhajit Ghosh: Your wish has been granted, and look how! Even NDA possibly didn't dream of this huge victory. Let's hope they deliver, and take the nation forward.
  • mystic wanderer: Third Front would be disaster, and UPA (again) would be a severe step backward. BJP/NDA led by Modi seems the only worthwhile choice.
  • WB: You're very welcome.
