the unmanned rocket – Chandrayaan.
Scientists claimed what a feat!
sheer waste, declared critic.

for everyone to succeed,

of caste and creed.
not give dole,

the other, for a developing nation
both are important matter.
we have spent billions,
in dollars, pound and cent
but on the poverty front,
we could hardly make a dent.
