If Not Now…Then When Shall We !!
Entire sovereign is favouring inaction, indeed party to crime
Everywhere, there is bloodshed, corrupted every mind
There is an impenitent dance of selfishness ‘n’ indifference
Marginalized is the common man, slighted is womankind
If we don’t fight for our rights now, then when shall we!
Powerful afflicting the weak, making them weaker
Wealthy becoming wealthier, one third still below poverty line
Enslaved, living a life of untouchables and maligned
Screaming for justice, do we heed them whine
If we won’t hear them cry, then when shall we!
Every religion ‘n’ caste is brewing hatred ‘n’ crime,
Common man so timid and scared, turns an eye blind
Few raise voice are singled out, pay price of being kind
Deprived of justice, subjected to more barbaric crime
If we still don’t raise our voice, then when shall we!
Media makes a news churning machine, chases TRP rates
The more sensational it is, more it sells in the race
People suffer from social amnesia; issues are dozen a dime,
Fast paced life, refuses to pause, fatigued by daily grind
If we don’t move now, then when shall we!
Honour for women, pride for daughters, is what we’ve been vying
Youth immersing in drug menace, hope of India’s dying,
Children of today, are future of tomorrow, is a forgotten rhyme
Caste still leads, power still rules, superstitions still haze our minds
If we don’t woke up still, then when shall we!
Where are those, whose senses are alive ‘n’ blood is still warm
Those brave hearts, who’re willing to fight ‘n’ await a new dawn
Who claim to be nimble n awake, need to create a storm
Those erudite, who dream and strive for a reform
If it’s not time to wage a revolution, then when shall we!
