.. for Manmohan is an honest man

Friends, Indians, countrymen, lend me your ear (or should I say eye)

I come to bury Democracy, not to cry over it
Not all men have the courage to live and die with conviction
Manmohan Singh rules sitting on the corpse of the Democracy,
So let it be with Democracy ... The noble Dr. Manmohan Singh
Hath told you he has never done anything wrong:
That he did not appoint the tained CVC,
And I wish we had questioned Manmohan Singh years ago ...
Here, under leave of Manmohan and the Congress,
For they are an honorable lot
So are they all; all non-corruptible people

Come I to speak when integrity of head of nation has been questioned...
Multiple times on 2G and CWG:
But Manmohan Singh says that he has done no wrong;
And he is an honest man….

He hath brought many ministers like Raja, Vilasrao, Kamalnath, Pawar,
To gather monies, his party and allies have filled their coffers with
Does this Dr Manmohan Singh look so clean?
When the people needed answers, Manmohan Singh gave helplessness:
A Prime Minister has to be made of sterner stuff
Yet Manmohan Singh says he is no to be blamed;
And Manmohan Singh is an honest man.

You all did see that on the sacred floor of Parliament
Manmohan Singh and his men bought and sold MPs like cattle
They bought votes and subverted media to stay in power
Yet Manmohan Singh says he is not to be blamed;
And, sure, Manmohan Singh is an honest man.

I speak not to disprove of whatever Manmohan Singh had done in past,
But here I am to speak what I do know now.
You all did love him once, not without cause:
But now what makes you mourn that love for him?
O my mother nation! You are held ransom by vested interests,
Manmohan Singh and his men have lost their reason…. Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Democracy,
And I must pause till it come back to me.

Note - For the uninitiated, this is a remake or a rehash of the original "Friends, Romans, Countrymen" speech by Mark Antony from Julius Caesar. Tried to adapt it to the current act of treason from a so-called clean, honest, gentleman PM. Its time nation asks Manmohan Singh "Et Tu, Dr Singh"


  1. Sarcasm with poetic touch. Enjoyed it.Good work.

  2. nicely done sir , initially we were shown his bio data and bunch of degrees and made us proud of such PM, now its time to prepare new one including all this
