What are these times we see today around us?
The nation heaves and gasps for air
As the regime rushes to whitewash away
Or look the other way.
Strangers come together to help and to hold
Misery colours all that we behold
Where is the national pride now?
As people wail in despair.
Other nations look aghast at our bloodied canvas
Murder holds India in her throes
As loss upon loss piles up of those we know and those we don’t know.
Let us pledge never to forget
Let us vow to help each other find our way out of this mess
The time has come for our Mann ki Baat
The time has come to say no more. No more. No more.
