HAPPY BIRTHDAY BAPU
`Ban' de Mataram
Bapu on your birthday I write to you about a song they got wrong,
`Ban' de Mataram.....
For my personal security I wanted to buy bullets,
But the shops are shut.
It's your birthday....
Wanted to smoke
But only allowed to smoke fumes from Nano...
I checked into a 10 room hotel and
they said in ten years they will build a 30 room hotel so their poorer guests may smoke.
But bidis are tax-free to help the poor
and a cottage industry like your dream cotton spinning wheel,
every woman, every child makes them and smokes them at home.
Wanted a drink,
and was told it was not available on your birthday but available if I paid more,
Bribery is banned but if you have a crore then you can donate it to a party.
But not on your birthday.
On your birthday just ban everything...even telephones...this day the dial tones of BSNL talk about truth and non-violence
when all I want to do is call 911 to talk to you.
On your birthday they give you a `Nuclear' gift.
`Ban' de Mataram is their freedom song, not mine.
