Pancholi Nandlal Kanjibhai

A shroud of haze engulfs
the earth as the news of thy death arrives,
And the slums of Calcutta,
from where you lifted the forsaken for care,
look dispossessed.

In thy death the world has
lost an apostle of compassion
who transcended the barriers of
caste and creed in disseminating love

A universal mother thou art,
whose healing touch mattered
much more than even Medicare,
for medicine heals the wounds of body,
but who shall heal the wounds of heart and soul
without thee, O Mother?

While at the kingdom of Heaven a choir of angels
eagerly awaits the return of the humble daughter.
The humans, still aghast and bereaved,
weep over the irrevocable loss.



Pancholi Nandlal Kanjibhai

Scribbled on public urinal walls
Scrawled on latrines of cinema halls
Sexy messages with illustration
Depicting process of procreation
Pithy remarks voicing political conviction
Agitprop's propaganda in cute slogan
Sometimes so obscene that the reader is blushed
Sometimes so confusing that he is nonplussed
Often revealing a pent up feeling
Or divulging clandestine dealing
Is this advanced version of caveman drawings?
Or stark human soul that in darkness sings?
Shall we call it safe dumping of public id?
Or hungry hearts that in loneliness bleed?
Be it as it may,it's something grotesque
And for its advance weeds of taboo bushwhack
It's hazardous to ignore writings on walls
Though it neither bewitches nor enthralls
