I set off alone towards my goal
But People kept joining me and the caravan was formed
I started with an intention, and it became a motto
I started with a speck and it became an indestructible spirit
I started with a Hope, and it became a determination
I started with a passion, and it became a revolution
Now it’s not a mob walking together
It’s ethos of a community
United with a direction, manifested as an entity
Standing for one vision, one purpose
This uprising and uproar is now
beyond me, unstoppable
Beyond anything or anyone.
This will continue to grow and swell
With vigor and pace
Till it reaches each of the ignited minds
perpetuating through the deep crevices of anonymous layers
Reaching Every Caste, creed, color
And Stimulating nerves alike.
Sparking cracks with awakening
Of a mutiny.
Now this is unrelenting
With me or without me!!
This poem is inspired by the following lines of Shri Majrooh Sultanpuri who was one of Indian cinemas most renowned and celebrated lyricist and sing writer.
“मैं अकेला ही चला था जानिब-ए-मंज़िल मगर
लोग साथ आते गए और कारवाँ बनता गया”
Translation:- I set off alone towards my goal but People kept joining me and the caravan was formed. It echoes with the thought that if you have rage and intention to bring upon a revolution, start walking with grit determination alone. Soon you will have followers who believe in change and have the same fire as you, and a mutiny will shape up.
