    Heard The Viral Song; Hotel JNU? Someone Gave An Amazing Twist To Hotel California Lyrics

    This poem is written by Shefali Vaidya, and has been viral since yesterday morning. Because of it’s accurate satirical take, we were encouraged to construct a picture story around it.

    On a dark Delhi highway, cool wind in my hair
    Warm smell of beef pakoras, rising up in the air

     DCIM101GOPRO

    Up ahead in the distance, I saw a candle march
    My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
    I had to stop for the night

    There he stood on the campus
    The bearded comrade yelled
    And I was thinking to myself,
    “This must be JNU, Commie academic Hell”

    Then he scratched his beard and showed me the way
    There were voices down the corridor,
    I thought I heard them say…

    Welcome to the Hotel JNU
    Such a leftist place (Such a leftist place)
    Such a leftist face
    Plenty of sedition at the Hotel JNU
    Any time of year (Any time of year)
    You can find it here

    Their thoughts are totally Marxist, but they want a Mercedes Benz
    They got a lot of ugly, hirsute comrades they call friends
    How they shout in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
    Some shout for azaadi, some for India’s death.

    So I called up the krantikaari comrade,
    And said, “Please show me some national pride”
    He said, “We haven’t had that feeling here since nineteen sixty nine”

    And still those voices are calling from far away,
    Wake you up in the middle of the night
    Just to hear them say…

    Welcome to the Hotel JNU
    Such a leftist place (Such a leftist place)
    Such a leftist face
    Plenty of sedition at the Hotel JNU
    Any time of year (Any time of year)
    You can find it here

    Kiss of love on the campus,
    Mahishasur worship so nice
    And he said “We are all just freeloaders here, living off the tax device”
    And in the professor’s chambers,
    We gather for the feast
    Free food, cheap rooms
    Oh, how we love this subsidized beast,

    c-fakepath-tour-delhi-food-walk-lead

    Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the door
    I had to find the passage back
    To the India I was before

    “Relax,” said the Comrade,
    “We are programmed to receive.
    You can enrol any time you like,
    But no one ever leaves!”
