It’s Tuesday morning,
The road is crowded,
Full of people going to earn their
Dal and chawal.
I see a man going on a two-wheeler,
i can’t see his face,
But I can see his back,
His bright red T shirt has a line in bold letters
‘Instant loan approval upto 5 Lakhs.’
Who is he?
An advertisement/a product/ a man
I wanted to see his face,
I wanted to talk to him,
But in an instant he and I were separated,
By our separate destinations,
I stopped at my office building,
He moved ahead.
The bright red T shirt became just a dot.
In no time.
In the end, he and I have to earn
our dal and chawal.
And the pot-bellied leaders will talk of development
On prime-time news.
