A Fund was created for donations
To show that those in power care
But if anyone tries to find out more
The reaction is how can you dare?
One of the most progressive laws
Was the Right to Information Act
But it’s been corroded & weakened
By those who prefer fiction over fact!
Every uncomfortable application
Is met with a strategy to stonewall
From department to department
It is passed as if it is a football
The purpose was to disclose it all
But the practice has been to deny
With pendency of appeals piling up
We are seeing very bad days for RTI
Activists are called blackmailers
Some have lost lives in the past
With even the judges unresponsive
How long can this movement last?
Strangely no one thinks it fit to ask
Without taking anyone’s side
If the Fund is meant to care for us
What are they so anxious to hide?
