“Mahabali” A Poem by Chandramohan S
// August 25th, 2015 // Cultural Politics
Mahabali returns to his homeland
For a three day sojourn
His feet have the mud from the paradise!
Buddha idols yet to be rinsed clean at a
Dried up vernacular river bed
A lot of symbols exiled;
Abdicated before their times.
Black Indians fast-
Three day commemoration
With women in white talcum powder
Sway in sync- group dance.
A vegetarian feast –
After a cannibalistic harangue.
