Crowd from Goa on British shores
WHERE IS MY CHEESE?
WHERE IS MY LAND?
Who took it away, away../
Or in reality land was never mine.
Is it my fault? Was it my choice?
Am I a perpetrator? or a victim of history.? or seller, broker of my own land?
Or just a a person who happened to be there?
It happened in a tiny place in Estado da India.
Misleading to translate it as State of India.
But so it was historically known.
Once it meant territories after crossing cape of GOOD GOPE
Some even included the sea, besides the land.
A WILD PRESUMPTION –of power that believed the world was theirs
as a resident in the territory called Gaonv? .
My ancestors registered our family in village records.
as GANVKAR and then due to climate and other factors went to sleep.
AND WENT TO SLEEP .
Mean while some others tried the level best to penetrate the system.
From here as well as far as Europe.
A few succeeded .
It was recorded in DOCUMENT CALLED FORAL
WE CALLED IT our MAGNA CARTA.
SURE THAT our Rights HAD ACHIEVED IMORTALITY.
WAS IT SO? OR FAILED JURISPRUDENCE on which our ancestors relied??
TODAY MY IDEENTITY IS QUESTIONED.
Did I really have one?
Was that a dream ?
A Autonomous village system _ ( an ancestral dream?)
These are not verses? nor poetry Nor prose.
Just words for you to imagine., reflect interpret or…?
