Mahad Satyagraha Haat
In the motionless alleys
Outside the village gates
You came and thundered
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.
