Forgotten

Sheela Iyer posted under Poetry



Peer Ali Khan, born to a Muslim family, Left his village at an early age,  For he yearned to obtain knowledge, And the passion to learn lingos, Was something no one dared those days. He later chose bookbinding as his profession,  And disseminated leaflets, To other freedom activists covertly, And criticized the British Government, and opposed rules imposed by them. He is an unsung Indian hero who was, A true freedom fighter and a rebel and, Whose slogan gained popularity,  Among the people of the country. His eyes glowed with the flame of liberation. But, Alas! Khan and his followers, Were soon arrested and put behind bars, And hanged to death for their rebellious act, resulting in the closing of the chapter. Do we remember him or his sacrifices?     Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
