It may suit
Rushdie to receive knighthood,
Tagore to accept Nobel Prize,
Sartre to reject Nobel Prize,
Remi − an unknown entity −
to reject conferred credibility
by feudal (slave) mentality,
within their space-time frame.
Tukaram, who returns the royal gifts
to King Shivaji, is beyond space-time.
Adivasis, rich in art of sustenance,
have no scriptures, no discourses,
until now, since time unknown: timeless.
(Tukaram: Saint-poet of Maharshtra India; Adivasi: the tribal or the aborigines)
