To Nehru

I am struggling, you are active

You are in Jail, I am in prison

Ten thousand miles apart, we have not met

We communicate without words

 

Shared ideas link you and me

What we lack is personal encounter

I am jailed by a neighbouring friend

You are chained and fettered by the enemy.

(Source: Ho Chi Minh: Vietnamese Hero of National Liberation and Great Man of Culture, Publish by the Embassy of Socialist Republic of Vietnam to India, 1989, p.69)
