FREEDOM IN CHAINS
By Neel Anil Panicker
Please have some faith,
allow me to choose my faith,
or, not to follow any faith.
I have no problem with Hinduism.
After all it is an ism__ a noble way of life indeed.
And I like to be known by my deed.
But I have every problem with Hindutva
For it is a forced way of life.
If push comes to shove
and I am left to prove
To choose one
and let loose the other
I would be left with no choice
But to speak my voice
And choose Humanism
over all other isms .
Would that also be a problem for some?
I doubt the reaction to be quite fearsome.
