Oh Sister! (to Irom Sharmila)

Oh Sister!
They dump you in Jawaharlal Nehru hospital
Because when Nehru discovered India
you were not born
and today you give a new meaning of this country
protesting calmly on the hospital bed,
Nose feeding back them 'how democratic India can be'

Oh Sister!
your silence is the marching song
against the marching soldiers

Oh Sister
They will crumble one day like rubbles
into your feet.
They will cry for peace someday before they die.
Let this world drown in your tears
Of ten years.
