When ? ( 26/8/1981 )

When will man respect man
because he is a man
the mere fact that he is a man ?

When will it not require
the coating and the wrapping
for man to get his due-
to be treated as a man

When will they,the smiles
spread freely-spontaneously
for the very fact that
it is directed at a man

Or is it an idle quest
a longing for uthopia
that is and will always be
beyond mankind?

PS : term 'man'is used to include 'woman'as well 


  1. Lovely poem...I hope it isn't an idle quest and the day comes soon.

  2. Thanks Kiran. I am also an optimist & I am waiting...
