Thank you the Guest and Dave for your appreciation of the poem.
Actually it was inspired by Clive and I was taken by a gust of poetic frenzy.
Dave, I shall be responding to you very soon about your idea on writing a novel.

Dave and I are dreaming of writing a novel that should make the politicians understand that they are doing no service to humanity by causing and creating conflicts between the nations. That their jugglery of words can deceive the people of their nation for the time being but after sometimes the people are disillusioned and they come to know their real designs based on their material self interest and deceptive hopes. Dave thinks that a novel with powerful characters representing the true faces of the politicians would prove a forceful instrument to change the world into a peaceful place. Some writers, like Tolstoy have already made such an attempt and has been successful to some extent, at least to present the real picture of the life which was going on and being faced by the people, yet the politicians are bent upon paying no heed to reasonable suggestions. They have the art of making their vested interests the problem of their people and nation. Global Reasoning has succeeded only to this extent so far that it has located where lies the real problem and who are its creators. And, Global Reasoning has also some positive suggestions how the world can be made a place worth living. It is of the opinion, that the creators of all the problems being faced by the world are the politician themselves especially those who are in the Security Council. They are in the habit of confusing the matters instead of solving them. To keep the dire matters and problems in the hanging position is the most favorite hobby of the Security Council. Instead of solving the problems, they confuse them in action and in language. The dreamed of a novel on this theme envisages to present all this situation in the most forceful manner. God knows when this dream will be fulfilled but it is there and it is hoped that it would be fulfilled by some dominant writer, if not the common writers like Dave and Ehsan.

We may dream, Eshan, but surely a worthy individual will author such a novel.

Political classics are still read: 1984 by George Orwell, Advise and Consent by Allen Drury, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

The public and Hollywood thirst for well written stories. A story focusing on the Security Council would include intrigue, greed, power, money, evil, hope, the clash of ideologies, economics, etc.

It could be written by a dominant literary writer or by a dominant best-selling author -- or by an unknown writer inspired to devote the time and energy to such a task.

The protagonist/hero could be a political science professor from Name-the-country who takes a sabatical to visit New York to study the workings of the Security Council first hand. Cool

Have all these political novelists ever been successful in changing the attitude of the politicians towards human beings and life?

That is the question, Eshan. In fact, has any story, poem, or essay changed the attitudes of politicians?

A few politicians are changed, but what is more important, I think, the attitudes and knowledge of the masses are changed and they in turn put pressure on the politicians to change the institutions.

In the perfect world we would have Prime Ministers, Kings and Presidents competing on a global scale as to who can provide the best care for the people of their land and the amount they can and do give to those with less. .

But there would be arguments because Madagascar’s medical break through on cancer may be dwarfed by the cure for aids by the Libyans, but this year’s honour goes to the Chinese for solving world hunger – go figure…

Can that become a goal rather then a repair of what exists, that may take more then one mans life…

It is just a terrible shame that we can’t build – we seem to want to destroy rather then improve and add on to. This is 100 % pure unadulterated politics, on all fronts. People are all the same in top positions of power; they get there for that reason.

Now wake me from this dream…

Dave, masses are influenced, no doubt, by the great writers yet they are not so powerful as to influence the politicians. The politicians listen to the masses only before and uptill their election. When they are elected, they do whatever they like claiming that they are the representative of the electoral area. They never ask the people on any urgent matters. Their party policies become more important to them. Moreover, there is a drawback in the democatic system itslef, inpite of the fact that this is considered the best of the systems in the world. The drawback is that a politician who wins with the lead of only one vote, becomes and claims to be the representative of the whole electoral, where as he is opposed by those people who have not elected him. What ever the conditions, I think Clive has made the best analysis of how a perfect state is supposed to be, and what it is in fact in the world and I think that is the quaitessence of the conditions prevailing in world since long time. I quot Clive hereunder and you will agree that that is the best analysis he has made. Clive wrote:
