Events baffle but the sure step of Evolution is on
Apparent discord proceeds towards an unseen Harmony
In conflict, people prepare the road.
Rather than the paradigms of the past
Nature would hew new pathways
A destination, eschewing repetition
To the Vedic progressive Perfection.
War, a Vedic device to score over the night
And welcome Evolution, an unavoidable interregnum
A delight for the hero but for choosing sides.
Tagore's ambivalence over Sandeep
And Subhash hobnobbing with Hitler,
Gandhi's fetish for Nonviolence,
Marxists securing Nehru's obedience.
Not easy to decipher the ways of the Evolution
Eminent men have faltered in their sojourn
Not Pune nor Delhi
Light radiated from Puducherry.
