Pundit, guru, mantra, karma and now a new one, pariah*.
Words borrowed from that one, distant land**
Loaded with such power and meaning
The Western tongue fails to convey,
Are now being used so widely,
With razor sharp efficacy,
Sends a message to the world at large.
That global interdependence is evident
Even in such communication.
