One Rupee Coin
One rupee coinIs not just currencyBut a historical legacyLongevity·s fancyUndergone visual changeIn need·s exigencyAnd served men·s daily changeEvidenced in urgencyKeeps earning ageAgainst time·s rageSun, heat, snow, wind and rainIt has borne all painFrom Gandhi to AnnaIt has witnessed sea changeIt has an antediluvian charmDoing no harmOne rupee coin is easily givenForsaken and takenDonor to beggarEasy giver to easy takerCrossing turmoil in all agesThe flood, the famine, the riots with ragesCursing the bloody handsMaligning the Ganges landsOne rupee coinIs Restless in one walletIs blessed with many a ownerCan never be a lonerIt seemed so much in Grandma·s handAs she narrated tales from her wonderlandOf age gone by longSeems like an elusive songAt some busy squareOf my town·s satireWalking past a beggar·s bowlI saw him in disgust scowlHolding one rupee coinIn its shining glitterSo little with time

respecting also the small denominations

one person's need is another person's want and we should tend to both - "So One ruppe coin / Buring little in present / shines like historical crescent" - very good, ankur
Storm added this note
Very good piece, reminding us of the history of something that is taken for granted and often overlooked. Something so small has such an impact.
Aniruddha Sastikar added this note
The 'One Rupee' coin tested and traversed through decades - consistently and persistently and still going strong. Good job, Ankur.
