I want to shoot Ram

“Let us go to village O Jamni
I want to buy a gun…….
Poor Shambuk was meditating
On the Vedas and Ram killed him.
I want to shoot Ram with the Gun
And next I want to kill Drona
Who demanded from Eklavya
His thumb in gurudakshina.”

Excerpts from a poem written by Maheshchandra Pandya published in ‘The Silver Lining’ a collection of translations of Gujarati Dalit poems. The book contains translations of poems of Harish Mangalam, Dalpat Chauhan, Pravin Gadhvi, Raju Solanki, Neerav Patel, SAhil Parmar, Shyam Sadhu, etc.
