Poem By Sushant Kumar B.K.
O government !
You are visiting Mars?No need,No need,But visit “ Dalits” house To behold the doomed face of humanity
Not due to class Not due to Ski They are Neglected For their Dalit being O government !Now you’re visiting Dalits’ house With some tailoring machines So you can proudly name them “skilled men power”?No need,No need.
Visit them with some educational plans,With some books and pens,And implement fully the privilege they have,Write not just in paper,Speak not merely is words But be an action man.
O government !Adopting social democracy Could utterly be a much better way Than to eulogizing political democracy And incorporate all the marginalized groups of individuals To make better Nepal, New Nepal.
Note: Dalits, the members of the lowest social group in the Hindu caste system who are also known as “untouchables.About poet Sushant Kumar B.K. is a Nepalese poet and freelance writer who resides in Gulariya, Bardiya, Nepal.
