[dropcap]I [/dropcap]wonder why?
The Nagas are price tag than priceless;
Monetary than virtue.

I wonder why?
Political hailstones promises than fulfill;
Gamble away than Serve;
Grab than share.

I wonder why?
Nationalist feared than loved;
Nation to perish than to progress;
History washed by the shore.

I wonder why?
Furnished homes than offices;
Yearns hefty pay than perform duties;
More recruits yet desolate workplaces.

I wonder why?
Police rush after all done and left;
Fire brigade alertwhen the embers are ashes;
Municipal visualize roads as parking lots;
Sellers right than consumers right.

I wonder why?
Religion materialistic than spiritualistic;
Seek donations unbothered of channels;
Mighty, wealthy and learned pulpits than honest souls;
Cleansing surroundings while cobwebs domain.

I wonder why?
Students’ politicsthan knowledge;
Teachers’ knowledge than wisdom;
Hallucinatory Leaders’ than visionary;
Corrupt than account.

I wonder why?
Nagas’ can’t be like the other creations ofGod;
Sun rises in the east and sets in the west dutifully;
Seasons comes in its on course faithfully;
God created them too.

I wonder why?
Nagaland is for Christ than Christ is for Nagaland;

I still wonder!
