Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.


A pome for Shaan

The Oberoi has water

But little Shaan does not

The government is helpless

The tankers leak a lot.

They leak to Mrs Verma

They leak to Modern School

They leak to Mr. Bhalla’s air-conditioned swimming pool.

They leak to loyal followers

Who charge you by the mug

And if you try to protest

They’ll crush you like a bug

Little Shaan is thirsty

But Auntie’s mind is clear

She’ll pat you on the head and tell you

“Have a Coke, my dear.”

            Sign Shaan’s Petition                    

The India Update team will publish poems daily, except when he’s on holiday.
