The Ayodhya Imbroglio
Ayodhya is the birth place of Ram g Who is known as God of Hindus.
When Ram was born ages ago
An iconoclast built the Babri Masjid.
It crumbled down by the force of fanatics
Today, Ram sits under a make shift tent
To get a glimpse of the Lord
Devotees throng braving tight security
The sanctum sanctorium is reached
By passing through winding maze.
Confusing rhetorics are issued,
Secularists broadcast stale views,
An impatient nation chants,
Ram Mandir at all costs.
Sophism by a privileged section
Has led to a re-excavation,
To ascertain if a temple existed
Where the mosque was constructed.
Come rain thunder or storm
Ram smiles benignly amidst furore,
it is for the Hindus to decide
Where the Lord must reside.
