India’s Population Uncensored

India's Population Uncensored | Painted Poem by Remigius de Souza

Here population explosion unlimited
Many Family Planning options employed
All Planning remedies get tired
Once an obstacle of Auspicious Time worked
But now through all seasons and times
Marriages happen 24x7 on TV serials

(18 February 2013 | Mumbai)

This is not an intellectual verbal acrobatics, but poetry in real life experienced and encountered by all my senses. Clearly, this is a word-caricature of Indian disparity or absurdity on several fronts, which cannot be caught in a photograph or a movie or in a fat discourse. Call it a poem, or a parody, if you wish, that defies rules of classical or romantic literature.
