In Metropolis

Which brighter
for the future
we are surviving
of this metropolis
smelly suffocating
in the environment….

Where breathing
there is a risk of T.B.
inherits from the elderly
here asthma also give as….
and under to heavy debt
suppressed to us hollow life

More can be seen in full youth
sunken eyes & cheeks…!
legs like as cigarette…. !!
tint of white hair….. etc.!!!

Greenery—in the name of nature
spread far and wide
wide forest of concrete houses
Bitumen roads

Laughs in infamous rooms H.I.V.
on more thinking
cancer-like disease…
in the gift….!

(Hindi Poem of Mahavir Uttranchali “Mahanagar me”
English translation by Abhishek Bhandari)
