THE HOLY HOLI
BY SONIKA SINGH
My head was down in dismay and shame!
When I read semen filled balloon was thrown in Delhi on an innocent dame.
Where has the holiness of Holi disappeared?
Perversion and unethical behavior has enveloped every sphere!
The festival of colours announces the arrival of spring.
Reminds that Pride brought fall even of Hriyankshapu, the king!
Holika, his sister died on the pyre for her evil deed,
Time has come to take action as morality has begun to bleed!
Krishna welcomed Holi with colours of love and piety,
What are we doing? Making our India colored in impropriety!
Are we such a weak land?
That against hatred, in humanity and injustice we can’t take a stand!
Take action. Let us not slack!
It’s time to get the holiness of Holi back.
