Tolerance surpassing intolerance

Don’t say my Indian society is intolerant
we tolerate extreme poverty
we tolerate hunger and starvation
we tolerate undernourished children
we tolerate lynching over food choices
we tolerate fake promises of Govt
we tolerate massacres of dalits and minorities and aboriginals
we tolerate radicalization and polarization
we tolerate Hindu terrorists in parliament
we tolerate saffron terror
we tolerate unemployment
we tolerate fatal attacks on writers and rationalists
we tolerate exponential increase in fascism
we tolerate state’s war on people
we tolerate manhandling of veterans
we tolerate war crimes of military
But damn you if you call our country intolerant
Because calling my nation intolerant will not be tolerated
Because it’s giving a bad name to our country sorry “Ruling Party”
Because we are extremely tolerant people
