Gandhism (गांधीवाद) Marathi Poem


Gandhiji wore loincloth of Khadi
We patronise marketed Khadi
That’s our limit of Gandhism –
Don’t shed crocodile’s tears.

(Dedicated to Democratic India, where Gandhiji appears only on the currency. His concept of Panchayati Raj - Rule by the Village - has remained only as concept, to be used in the scholarly discourses.)

(Translated from the original by the author)

गांधीजी पंचा नेसत होते.
आम्ही बाजारू खादी नेसतो.
ही आमची गांधीवादाची मर्यादा --
नक्राश्रू ढाळू नकोस.
