Sanjeev Sethi


To match footsteps with crooks and cozeners
he masters their makings. It isn’t easy to alter
conscience. But avarice is a skilled coach. He
bows to the wizard of wantonness. Machinations
are his meals, doublespeak his thirst quencher.
The strong room masks his malfeasance.

Sanjeev confesses: "Vexed by the system we’re witness to professionals, doctors, lawyers, journalists, joining the political process in order to cleanse it, but with the passage of time one detects their deterioration. The poem illustrates this: with sadness."
