Kenchua (Earthworm)

Ek kenchua
bilkul anjaan
duniyaa ke
reeti riwaazon se,
duniyawaalon ki
rozmarra ki
bematlab ki
bhaagdaud se,
reng raha hai
apni hee dhun mein,
naapta hua
kai gaon
kai kasbe
kai sheher.

Arey ye kya?
Kenchue ne
naap liya hai
poora desh!
Media waalon ka
taantaa laga hua hai.
Doorbeen ka focus
chaubees ghante
uske ghar per laga hai.
Aaj kenchua
badi hasti bann-ne waala hai.

Lekin kenchua
bilkul anjaan
duniya mein mili
apni nai pehchaan se,
darr kar
saham kar
dubka hua baitha hai
apne teen foot gehre ghar mein.
Darta hai
kisi ke
jooton ke neeche
na aa jaaye.

  1. Hi Prats

    I write to you on behalf of The Viewspaper (www.theviewspaper.net) which is India's largest youth paper and the 5th largest media company on Facebook.

    We are organizing the World's Largest Tweet-A-Thon! and would like to invite you as a panelist for the same.

    From American political journalists in the 1950s, to The Economist magazine not so long ago; speculation has run rife about India and whether we will survive as a nation.

    Poverty. Corruption. Terrorism. Disease. Currency woes. We’ve got it all, and more. We’ve been written off, doomsdayed, delegitimized – but we keep coming back! What is the root of this appetite for adversity, this solid resilience?

    It is our nation’s optimism. No matter how much you bring her down, India feels up!

    A first of its kind initiative, the #IFeelUp Tweetathon is a 3-day virtual conference, which delights in the irrepressible state of the nation, in spite of its laundry list of issues. Over 72 hours, we’ll be bringing in 400 panelists for non-stop discussion, and that’s where you come in.

    We would like to invite you as a panelist for a 30 minute session wherein you can participate from any part of the world.

    If you're interested, kindly email us your contact information so that we could provide you with more details about the event.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
