Elegy : Written in Palghar
Certainly death lays its icy hand even on kings.
Certainly death can't be avoided at any costs.
But I lament the death of three passersby
Due to lockdown 3 men going on highway
Had to move through Palghar
Had to move through death river
In Palghar area there are religious and political converts of many hues,
Christians, Muslims , Communists and other political hues.
After around 3 hours mob heckling with the help of Maharashtra police 2 saints and their driver were lynched.
No one definitely knows how three innocents were killed?
What was their fault and what was cause of action?
I want to know
Even all the people of globe want to know
But there is a clue,alien money is pouring in India with different motives and modes
Between them there is sometime cooperation and sometime competition
They have lost their ideals for bringing people in their fold
Blinded by competition and worst leadership 3men were killed.
Mob lynched persons were Kalpvriksh Giri,Sushil Giri and driver Nilesh ,
I can only lament and weep
Can't forget such dastardly deaths , only memory I keep.
