Why she didn't get Binayak Sen's autograph - and other shorts

Ideology is detritus
And hard-working governments
Manipulate it better than we ever can

He prefers
Anonymity to self-promotion
They prefer
A Mahatma and a good-looking poster boy

Politics is theatre
And yet, people abhor plays that make them think
Since it can spread brain disease, you know

World social forum or social world forum?
Where media junkies try to persuade the masses
About what's right for them
In their pitiable ghettos

When she strode upto Binayak Sen
For his autograph
He was calculating the body mass index for ordinary people

Alarmed by her own obesity
She turned around and walked off
