Hear the saga of the common man- the aam admi.
He is the ultimate hero, the fictional centre of the universe.
Some claim that their hands are with him.
Some have made name, fame and fortune out of his name.
Every religion champions his cause.
Every atheist has vowed to be by his side come what may.
Each page of newspaper is dedicated to protect him from other looters.
Every body from the king to the millionaire is in competition to be his most humble servant, protector and savior.
The world exists to fulfill his wishes and everyone of some reckoning has been working for him, since time immemorial.
Now this is the miracle:
In spite of so many well-wishers, messiahs and mass leaders,
he continues to remain poor, exploited, helpless, be-fooled, baffled
fighting and killing fellow common man for the just cause.
Every hand is out to rob him.
Every elephant is out to trample him
Every sickle is out to cut his throat
And every hammer is eager to crush his head.
Every lantern burns out of his blood.
He bears the brunt of every broom.
His desperation and despair provides manure for every lotus to bloom.
The list would go on.
But, the saga of common man will continue
to be the same story of struggle and betrayal day after day.
