We can never really rest easy
As long as we have this LoC
A flimsy line that divides the valley
Where a moment lost is a big folly Read more
Who needs a Lokpal?
When you have Kejriwal
Probing is his habit
And his hat is full of rabbits Read more
Let’s go hu tu tu! Let’s go hu tu tu!
You’ll blame me and I’ll blame you
Let’s play a new game then, shall we?
We’ll call it then corruption kabaddi Read more
It’s not the CIA, or indeed the Gestapo
The PM is troubled by Time and WaPo
He can handle quite well cocky local journos
But not, dear reader, overseas infernos.
So he must douse the fire, ASAP
The image abroad is critical, you see!
Citizens may scream, protest or tweet
They can petition online, shout on the streets
They are nattering city boys, not rural voters
(and some instigated by the Tribe of the Lotus!)
Middle-class barbs are just for drawing rooms
Tis the village that matters when elections loom!
But the matter of the phoren scribe, is something else
The Cambridge don must find out what that tells
the investor abroad, or Davos-bound elite
the G-20 high table, and UN whatchamacallit
A fire must thus be fought, as fires truly are
Efforts must be made to whiten the tar!
Tragic figure, did he say, this wretched Simple Simon?
Greek Tragedy in Mahabharata? Oh, really? Come on!
He gets his epics mixed up, this ruminating Brit
We must challenge his words, and question his grit
So the PM clarifies, seeks an apology
Breaks his silence a bit, for the sake Sonia-ji!
Our own Hyderabad gal
Was up against the Great Wall
She did try hard, our Saina
To beat the Red Star of China Read more
He may stay in a Hilton, a Sheraton or a Marriott
But Mr. Advani’s favourite vehicle is a chariot
He’s been there, done that, riding it once
And dreams big again for its recurrence Read more
Stop worrying about terrorist, soldier or spy
The courage of a Kasab or the method of a Fai
Celebrate, my dear Indian, the arrival of Ms. Khar
She has truly changed the Indo-Pak game by far Read more
In the abode of the feisty Indian Commie
Power has now visited a humble mommie
Voted and feted in the city of Kolkata
A street-queen is out to make things better. Read more
In living rooms peopled by mums and dads
On TVs buzzing with more and more ads
They watched some featuring Subramonium and aluminium
But none would have expected such Pandey-monium! Read more
Shhh! Don’t get up yet! Sachin may fall!
If the phone rings loud, don’t take that call
For we are Indians who’ll do anything for cricket
Our living room acts might cost us a prize wicket! Read more
