“Arnab Goswami” – Moloy Bhattacharya

Arnab Goswami

The assassin ravenously
Lurking on the impending prey
Maiming them with his grilling
That is fired like a volley of arrows
From a verbose bow
With a deadly velocity
To inflict the blow
On the ominous prey
Parrying from the other end
To squeeze the facts
From the sieved water
Of probity for a cause
To dispel the corrupted
With fiery eyes, burning tongue
He encroaches into the brain
Operating a skull autopsy
Muzzling the sycophants
With tyrannical puerility
Hail to you for such audacity
The nation salutes your integrity.

The assassin ravenously
Lurking on the impending prey
Maiming them with his grilling
That is fired like a volley of arrows
From a verbose bow
With a deadly velocity
To inflict the blow
On the ominous prey
Parrying from the other end
To squeeze the facts
From the sieved water
Of probity for a cause
To dispel the corrupted
With fiery eyes, burning tongue
He encroaches into the brain
Operating a skull autopsy
Muzzling the sycophants
With tyrannical puerility
Hail to you for such audacity
The nation salutes your integrity.

(Note: Arnab Goswami, one of my immensely admired Indian journalists, is the
Editor-in-Chief of Times Now news channel)

Theme: The poem focuses how Arnab Goswami presents the news with determination and fearlessness and tries to squeeze the truth from the guests invited in his show.
