THE AFTERMATH OF PASCHATTAPA

"The throne is vacant and the norm to filling is laid down 
The late king willed the custom be honoured as put down 
An opportunity, so awaits the youth of this Andaman Island 
To display talent and claim kingship of this holy land.

The will enjoins the claimant to produce in a month's time 
A thing of beauty - displaying the play of head, heart and hand 
Should it please the 2Kulaguru, he'll crown him the same time". 
The 3Pradhani read out the will to the youth of the land.

"Here's a ruby-the crystalised blood of a Girijan Gandhi 
Sharing the plight of aborgines, he fought night and day 
Alas! died to the bullet, on liberating, like Indian Gandhi 
I cahght his last drop.'' said a youth on the appointed day.

''Your selection and trial", said Kulaguru, "deserve all praise 
More than conquest, consolidation alone ensures progress 
Martyrdom doesn't create 4Ramarajya, nor tangible progress 
It only creates another post-Independent India, so no Prize."
