We’ll Kill Ourselves for Sushant

Advertisements

Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead under mysterious circumstances at his apartment in Mumbai on June 14 this year. The Indian media have raised some serious questions over the investigation, or rather the lack of it, carried out by the Mumbai police.

Be that as it may, the case is now being handled by the Central Bureau of Investigation, which, if sources are to be believed, will add a murder charge to its report anytime soon. The hullaballoo over the demise of the Bollywood star hasn’t died out though.

With the horrendous rape of a teenager now grabbing the newspaper headlines and with more and more people dying terrible deaths on account of the deadly Coronavirus in India, what justifies the protests being held at Jantar Mantar demanding Justice for SSR? Is the movement a sham, or is there more to it than our eyes can see?

Death of Our Beloved Is What We See

We’ll sloganeer,
play the blame game.
That of name, shame;
Oh! We’ve no fear.
Virus isn’t sure here.
For Sushant we’ll kill ourselves, if need be.
May be we’ll get fame we hanker after.
Nothing shall to us, thus, henceforth matter.
Death of our beloved is what we see.
We’ll juxtapose
truth with damn lies
as his soul lies
covered with rose
for cams we pose.
That’s all we know.

Rape devastates
families? Yes!
But here for press,
we go by dates…
For Sushant we’ll kill ourselves, if need be,
twaddling ’bout the matters that don’t matter;
Listen day in and out to our pratter.
Death of our beloved is what we see.
We will sidetrack,
go out of track.
Men may be tense
with probs intense.
But do we care?

We will misguide
men of our land
lifting our brand,
rules all defied.
For Sushant we’ll kill ourselves, if need be,
peddling lies as truths to world this that’s round;
For by what are we in great land ours bound?
Death of our beloved is what we see.
Shall we dissent
till grave probs dent?
Make men talk ’bout
that Sanjay Raut?
We shall, we shall.
