Circus (Marathi Poem)

Dombari are a caste of acrobats in Indian Society

From South Pole
To North Pole
A tightrope walk
. . .
Dombari are a caste of acrobats in Indian Society. In the democratic India’s changing economy, they are now vanishing: No rehabilitation, No education. Who cares?

They are mentioned in Siddhartha Jataka that date back to 3rd Century B.C. Would they ever reach Olympics, or vanish?
