Mahatma Gandhi and the Ganges River

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark


Mahatma, your spirit
is in the Ganges River
for cleansing and purifying
against deception in class
divisions and social traditions.

With your spirit in the Ganges
the Brahmins, the Ksatriyas
the Vaisyas and the Sudras
are one race-
thirsty,holy,filthy-
and in need of one common hope
under the blanket of heaven.

The river is breathing for all
and needed by all.
In you and in the river
the caste system is drowned.
