In the New Year

(Stan Swamy, Trans. by FreeVoice)

With the New Year
Let a resurgence come
To our doorsteps.
Let it burn like a lamp
In our hearts,
Let it dispel darkness,
Let it make us embrace truth,
Truth that can make us bold,
Truth that can speak to power,
Let it make us ready
For a huge sacrifice–
For a flood of our blood.

I write because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, said George Orwell. As a writer, I never kowtow to the whims and dictates of the sacred godmen or godwomen, the political bigots and hypocrites, dealers of laymen, the dishonest and self-serving intellectuals, traders of religions, the betrayers of ‘other’ Indians who eke out a living by their sweat, who are living in fear for being lynched for this and that.
