Varun wrote a Hindi poem titled “Hum Kaagaz Nahi Dikhayenge” (We will not show the papers)
Amid the ongoing protest in India, Varun Grover - a prominent comedian and screenwriter from the country - extended his support to the demonstrators with a poem.
The entire country erupted into protests against the widely controversial citizenship law and National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Varun wrote a Hindi poem titled "Hum Kaagaz Nahi Dikhayenge" (We will not show the papers). He also uploaded a video of himself reciting the poem on his Twitter account on Saturday.
Some verses from the poem roughly translated into English are,
"Dictators will come and go.
The NRC papers, we won't show.
You blind us with tear gas, you poison our waters.
That our love will sweeten
And we'll drink it all in a go."
The video, that already received at least 4 lakh views, has won praise from many including prominent personalities such as Shashi Tharoor and Sitaram Yechury.
Thirty-nine years old Varun is the lead writer of famous Netflix show Sacred Games. He won the award for Best Lyricist at the 63rd Indian National Film Awards 2015.
