Have Faith in the People’s Faith

Monday 16 February 2015, by Suhas Borker

Have Faith in the People’s Faith

The people’s barricades are up in sixty-seven zones
the juggernaut of the Ashvamedha horse has been
bridled and stopped and for once the cries of
the last man and woman
from the rotten and stinking gutters of the
underbelly of Delhi have been heard.
It is a wake-up call to the believers of the Idea of India.
Have faith in the people’s faith in democracy!
Have faith in the people’s faith in the Republic!
