Laloo Prasad Under William Wordsworth's Shade

After hearing Laloo Prasad’s speech at railway budget in February 2009, where he translated his Hindi poetry in English saying

“Everybody is apprresayting, ki I have done a tremeedous wark. Each and every year, I have earned crores and crores every day.

“And they are saying, Laloo Yadav has phlanted a foot tree, and every year, it is dooty of my, to grow foot tree,”

I was quite impressed and I applied for membership to his fan club. The criteria for enrolling were to offer him an invitation for some free lunch and a glass of milk.

I invited him for a read-meet to share his brilliant work with my pals at our Oooty resort.

Surprisingly, he accepted my invitation and even read some of his poems!

This is his poem which I loved it so much……..

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw from train
A host, who was a black buffalo king
Beside the lake, beneath the trees
All ready with a bucket of milk

Continuous as the stars that shine
Couldn’t resist that taste divine
On next station I immediately alight
With 9 girls and 2 sons of mine
The crowd at station saw I at a glance
Ask me of new railways budget, I frown.

They all happy with crores I make
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee
Laloo (that’s me) had never been that gay
The euphoria that I experienced that day
I speak and speak-but little thought
What wealth the new budget brought!

For oft, when on 2-tier sleeper I lay
In vacant or in pensive mood
They don’t appreciate the English I say
in first class language of NRI today
I gulp down last glass of milk
making new plans, will ask them to chill.
