introductions

the buzz from the bazaar:

died
jesus in kashmir
and mary in muree

alive
bin laden is the mute saint
of benares and saddam is
a hollywood extra

not disputed
aliens built pyramids for the exiled
brahmins who became pharaohs

the V1 and V2 rockets were designed
by scientists who later worked
with hindustan aeronautics

strangely true
in goa, charles sobhraj and i shared cigarettes
and a plaque that protected horses

in nikko-japan

became more famous as gandhiji’s
three monkey’s: see-hear-speak no evil

Truth and nothing but
my great great grandfather-mehta ram ghor
was a mercenary who fought battles in iran
afghanistan and mongolia; his grandson, a priest

his son, my grandfather, joined the police
and this was much before hindi cinema

reality is what we believe
ha!
