Sun zooms into sky
Like aspirations of workers of ‘ Maruti Suzuki ‘
Toiling daily with casting and moulding
And turning and fitting
Gears, accelerators and brakes
Or cushioned seats and side glasses
In the sweltering heat
And iron rust

For daily pittance
And a few crumbs
Work on a contract
With worry of dismissal constant
These labourers
Meander their days

One day, they are thrown out
The management worries about profit
Workers unite and demand
Question Management’s intent

They are dragged into prison
Cases slapped with precision
That they killed the officer
Life imprisonment is the only answer

Still they look at the sky
The brave labourers of Maruti Suzuki
And find the rays of sun
Consoling their aspiration

One day, they will be released
Their sincerity answered
One day. The justice
Will come and embrace
Their lives
Their grief stricken families ..

( For the wrongly incarcerated maruti automobile workers)
Sheshu Babu could be from anywhere and everywhere as he wants to foster the whole world )
