away from maddening crowds in cities
away from the hip hop generation,
away from the endless talk of development,
away from india shining and rising

in our villages
in our forests,
in our rivers,
in our heartland

the loot goes on and on
land loot in name of growth,
resources loot in name of development,
farm land loot in name of sez

it does not matter at all
for the loot is all for development.
(farmers protesting the land loot in bidadi , karnataka. in name of sez, widespread land acquisition, most of the times forced is heaped upon rural areas. picture courtesy hindu)
