About a morning walk not far from home, a lush green park the scene of exit , with a few neem leaves in the palms and mouth, a final exhalation no next inhalation, he fell to the ground, I lost my father the mother earth took back it's son.
AMIDST THE LOCKDOWN
Life's apparently on a pause with no air miles to clock within the confines of the four walls we yearn to be set free invisible to the naked eye a virus did this to us what else can we do now than just simply be. On what once was a busy road a bewildered peacock opens up it's wings dancing in it's full glory ignorant to the existence of other creatures we came thus far busy with geo-politics and fighting countless wars. Handshakes - a thing of the past the good 'ol 'NAMASKAR' - the new cool hugs and kisses, expressions of love no more social distancing the new norm. Are the stars shining brighter these days? Are the rivers cleaner now? Polluted with our unconscious actions the veil of ignorance blinded us for long. Exposing the human frailty this Covid-19 pandemic winning on many counts accounting for lives and jolting the economy Yes, this too shall pass let it not break us rather make us nothing stronger than cohesive human resolve amidst the lockdown may the humanity truly evolve.
Yet another Rape incident has shook the entire nation and led to widespread anger and calls for ‘Instant Justice’. The horrific crime where Dr. Priyanka Reddy was brutally raped and charred to death on the outskirts of Hyderabad has brought back the memories of Delhi’s Nirbhaya rape case. When will Enough be Enough and when will this inhumanity end remains to be seen but such cases should not be forgotten and the human life be valued above all instead of just another #Dr.PriyankaReddy.
A heinous crime
abuse of abuses
physical, mental, emotional
leaving an indelible imprint
of the fear within
the horror haunts for a lifetime
The way she dresses
the way she looks
isn't an invitation to rape her
it's the design of convoluted minds
Oh man - look what you've made her go through
if someone had to die
it better be you
Been happening since times immemorial
when will this inhumanity end?
do away with the gag
speak up now
it's a dear life after all
not just another hashtag
