Chitto Jetha Bhaypurno
Where the minds of the people are always in fear of losing their livelihood or not being able to make two ends meet, and the head is stooped low
Where the leaders of the country are shameless gangsters, crooks, looters, deceivers and gundas who have amassed fortunes
Where crony capitalists have cornered most of the country's wealth, while the masses are living in abject misery
Where most people are servile and kowtow, crawl and do shaashtang before the corrupt leaders 
Where cows are worshipped and minorities lynched on false charges of cow slaughter
Where a Ram Mandir is built not only in Ayodhya but also in every town, and even in every mohalla and village, in India
Where Muslims are thrashed if they do not say ' Jai Shri Ram ' and are forced to eat gobar and drink gomutra
Where people raising their voice against oppression, exploitation and corruption are branded as Naxalites and shot like partridges
Where bollywood, cricket, fashion parades and astrology is given to the poor masses instead of food and jobs, the way the Roman Emperors gave circuses to the people
Where people demanding bread are told to eat cake
Where the largely corrupt, sold out and shameless media keeps diverting attention of the people from the real socio-economic issues to trivialities
Where every virtue has decayed and vanished, and honesty regarded as stupidity
Where wealth replaces character and conduct. Might becomes right, might alone determining dharma and justice.
Where trade and fraudulent practice become synonymous.
Where the law favours only the rich, and has no regard for justice. 
Where he that can curse and swear best will be considered the finest scholar.
Where poverty will be sufficient cause to establish guilt in the eyes of the law, while wealth and ostentation will be indices of character.
Where he who maintains his family by the foulest means will be considered most respectable. 
Where dharma is observed only for exhibition.
Where whoever is crooked and daring becomes the political leader, and rules like greedy lustful bandits, with plunder and rapine of the citizens
Where exhausted by cruel taxes, deprived of rains in the land, the people subsist on wild vegetation, roots, and leaves
Where the political leaders, when the people complain they have no food, tell them, like Foulon before the French Revolution, to eat grass `.
Where the rulers are mere robbers, and men, driven by despair, poverty and unemployment will become thieves, murderers or suicides.
Where arrogance, hypocrisy, deception, dishonesty, sloth, somnolence, cruelty of every kind, delusion, terror and wretchedness will rule 
Where the vilest men become the foremost traders, making cheating and thievery the common practice of the marketplace. 
Where seated upon the sacred thrones of great and holy gurus of yore, babas that are masters only of vice will expound dharma to the gullible populace.
Where depleted by dreadful taxes, tormented by drought, starved, owning none of the bare necessities of life---homes, clothes, food and drink, a bed, a bath,etc. --men will seem more like bhutas and pisachas.
Into that hell of slavery, Father, let my country awake
Hari Om
