The law is blind and so …


Binayak Sen
a doctor
who helps the poor
a civil rights activist
who fights for the wretched people
a dedicated person
who assists tribal people

is behind the bars
for the rest of his life
crime must be grave?
but what is it?
conspiracy, sedition, unlawful activities against the State

if the laws are introduced
then the legal characters have to show
that the system is functioning

a “witness” was produced
and thus, an investigator
sealed Dr. Sen’s fate in 90 minutes

law is blind
so are the judges
so is the police
so is the investigator
so is the system

from the high alter of power
any judgment can be delivered
you can keep on protesting
the law is also deaf
