I am An Unconquered Lam

Kancha Ilaiah Shepherd

I am born as a lamb

In the meadows of caste

All around me were wolves

Educated abroad to be nationalists

My competition on the grass land

Was seen as anti-national.

My knowledge of the land, water, forests

Was seen as meritless madness.

My  awareness of myself

Was seen as Un-Indian absurdity.

They wanted to swallow me

Yet I survived as I am not Eklavya

I advanced as I am not Baliraja

I  declared, I am Not a Hindu, as I am not Kabir

I know the language that they never knew

I rejected the authority of all wolves

I operated outside their ideology

I am Ilaiah Shepherd

Kancha Ilaiah Shepherd
