Perception vs reality

the ascetic

at peace

looking deceptively innocent and apolitical

seemingly an ardent Nature worshiper

with no  violent disposition apparent

nor greed …

far from the material crowd

so it seems

what we see is not always what is …

what we don’t see is not always absent

the stark reality:

actually is a brilliant exercise in PR

unchecked avarice for power

creating constant state of turmoil in the country:

plays all dirty tricks of the politician to hold on to power

perpetuating the fearful state of chaos

politician to the core

enemy of environment and nature

violence is used to enhance power

loves to wear a $16,000 suits

covets the materialistic Adanis, Tatas, Ambanis


perception versus reality …
