Hate Taj Mahal as ‘ Muslim’ mausoleum
After visiting it applauding as India’s ‘ priceless gem’ (1)
A wonder!

Divide people by caste and community
Propose ‘ run for unity’ (2)
A wonder !

Impose beef ban in some states
Be silent in north- east states
Failure to explain contradictions (3)
A wonder!

Make aadhar mandatory
Leaving cabinet ministers ‘ free’ (4)
A wonder!

Declaring date of result first
Disclosing Gujarat election dates last (5)
A wonder!

Stating violence of extremists’ declined
Deploying additional forces trained
With latest equipment on hand (6)
A wonder!

While economy is crumbling
And hunger increasing
Government optimism rising
Harping on ‘ache din’ coming …?
A wonder!
Sheshu Babu is a writer from anywhere and everywhere
