There is a Comrade made of steel,
that was born in the land of the soviets
in the people's war in Vietnam he was along with the people
in fight for Palestine liberation he fought for the people of Palestine
in Latin American people's war he was with the people
in people’s war in China he has fought for people of China
nowadays in several states of India it is fighting hand in hand with Adivasis and Dalits
Salute (and long live) the comrade of the people who is made of Steel!

Long live comrade Klashnikov!

Lieutenant-General Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov
(10 November 1919 – 23 December 2013)
I don't like guns
I hate violence
but people's war
is not really an offense
it is a only cry
it is a cry of a suffocating source
from depth of a well
from a sinking entity
the innocent, the exploited,
the one who was stamped on his forehead as a lower caste
the one who was stamped on her forehead as a lower sex
screaming it is my right to breath
don't push your boots on my head
to die under mud and quicksand of
feudal/capitalist/caste world that rules
when you don't know it is simply not knowing
but when you know and you don't care or act
you are a criminal
to be indifferent
join me to fight for justice and wipe out caste
join me to fight for mother India with a red star on its forehead,
join me for equality sooner the better or
sorry, destiny and time may not have mercy.
It is not right to talk about vengeance ..................
