Poem on Mahad Satyagraha

Mahad Satyagraha Haat

In the motionless alleys

Outside the village gates

You came and thundered

Everyone started

Brushed of the dust and woke up

You walked forward

Holding flaming urn

All the merchants of darkness were fear struck

You kept on walking

With everyone following

You stopped at the bank of the pond

And gave us life …


‘Haat’ in Marathi means ‘hands’.

Poem is written by Arjun Dangle, one of the founding members of the Dalit Panther Party.
