to the Martyr Son - Jai Hind


The soil is moistened
With the tears of a mother
Whose son lay smeared with his cold-blood
Far-off.
The guns and the bombs went mute
With the reverberations of her heart beats, which wails
Resonating her love
For her martyr son,
Whom she had once wrapped in a woollen blanket
To insulate from the cold;
Now, lay bare and limp
On the bosoms of the Mother Land.

Oh, Mother!
I am a coward, unlike your Son
and, so inept even to console you.



Jai Hind.
