Munnabhai aur circuit ke muh
humne suni kahani hai ;
eye-for-eye purana hua
ab gandhigiri ki bari hai.
Aaj-kal sare directions me
gandhigiri ka shor hai
'gandgigiri is the in-thing
even if Gandhi bada bore hai'
gandhiwad ka make-over karke
humne gandhigiri karli invent
but how many of us see beyond the hype
to the message that was meant?
Gandhigiri is not just sending flowers to your foe
its about making sure he's no longer your foe
gandhigiri is not getting in the papers by going on a fast
its the willingness to sacrifice yourself for a cause you think is just
Gandhigiri is all about following gandhi's ideals
but do we understand them & do we even care?
everybody around is joining the bandwagon
trying to be part of the wave, just joining in the fun.
The real change will come when
we are willing to bring it
by not just talking about gandhigiri
but accepting and following it.
Till then Gandhigiri will just be
another passing fad,
yet another gimmick to market
a movie or an add.
