the new india

Vishnu sits at his writing desk

Gada switched for a pen;

Dreams, reality, it’s the same to his editors.

 

Lakshmi works at the bank,

Lotuses in her hair;

Wealth and prosperity to all, as she handles the deposits.

 

Shiva supervises the demolition sites

Far from the Ganges;

“The Destroyer” indeed, he sets off the dynamite.

 

Parvarti labors at the hospital

Delivering babies, comforting new mothers and fathers;

They jokingly call her “Mom”, unknowing of how right they are.

 

In short:

The world moves on

And so must gods.
