Satnam

It is going to be a year
the world has probably forgotten
his name meant the name of truth
and his quest to find it finally
succumbed to unkind reality….
too brutal… too young.. too early
accused by divinity
imprisoned by authority
charged with insanity
he died with an unanswered inquiry
where is our humanity…?
where is our humanity…?
Do you remember him…?
Satnam Singh….
the young law student from Bihar
who died in a mental asylum
in god’s own country…
