I was quite moved by Satish Chander's poem.

I had a rather detailed rebuttal of Sree Dokka's arguments in the works.  But 
after reading Sree Veluri's re-post of Sree Bapa Rao's comments, it is clear to 
me that one could hardly improve on what Sree Bapa Rao has already said so 
elegantly.

I am sure that just as every elder who repeated the mahaabhaarata story pointed 
to Ekalavya as the ideal of studentship, every, I repeat every youngster, who 
heard it felt a great sense of injustice and cried out "unfair!"  Why is this 
innate sense of idealism lost as one "matures?"
