In view of the current crusade of Anna Hazare against corruption, this poem about the power of masses becomes a must read. Dinkar Ji wrote this beautiful poem when India became a Republic on Jan 26, 1950. India’s population was 33 Crores that time. From now on, it would be the meek people of the land who would collectively rule this great country. Look how beautifully the idea has been weaved in the excerpt given below. An exhortation very typical of Ram Dhari Singh Dinkar. Reader DK Chaturvedi informs me that this poem was used by Jai Prakash Narayan to start his peoples stuggle in 1970s. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
