Darjeeling

A lot of people ask me how Darjeeling is right now.
This is my answer to everyone.

Darjeeling the Queen of hills
Is going through a lot of pain
Everything is so still
I don’t want to picture again
Peace rally, silent protest
Lathy charge and gun firing
Depleting ration, time of test
Unrest and mourning
Different news everyday
We are foreigners is what they say
Speculations and assessments
A new committee to lead our way
Online posts, articles, announcements
Situation here is degrading everyday
From kids to old, man or woman
Suffering in different ways
No schools or colleges
Cannot gather in one place
Forces deployed everywhere
Carrying arms, guess for self defense
Fear of walking in the streets
Can’t sleep properly at night
New morning, new plans
To make Darjeeling Gorkhaland.
