Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


When you sit on the throne, you become an exploiter.

Before sitting on it, you are a good person

but after sitting all your goodness is gone.

The throne itself has got some evil power-

it can convert a good person into an exploiter,

one’s conscience has nothing to do

as the tread of kite is in the hands of throne-

the very thread controls the kite’s motion.

I’m very much afraid of sitting on the throne

as this will convert a noble horse into a hungry wolf,

I may not control my hunger-

it’ll lead to my death due to food poisoning.

I’ve discovered an alternative-

despite of sitting on the throne

if one practices to rule while in standing posture,

one may avoid the evil effect of the throne!

I mean- you never think of power,

it is the another name of mass,

you have no right to claim it.

As long as there is a throne,

you will claim power.

So keep it aside, stand up and rule.

A reminder for you- never sit.
