(Part of MID-WEEK BLOGGING #1 by WRIMO INDIA ) He flew in gliding over our desk as we held our meeting. Startled at first, we ducked. 'Who would want to come in touch with this creature, we all mumbled together, the expressions on our faces revealing our dislike for an entity which was a stranger… Continue reading Bat (tling) over the Past!
The spirit, suffering Is finally free. Trapped treacherously By an insensitive act of a cruel carnal desire, Losing luscious longing To a human desire gone wild, The soul slowly let go. The body brutally hurt, badly bruised Tearing through the senses We all take for granted. Four long decades of living a dead life. While… Continue reading Oh Aruna! Oh Humanity!
Just because it is a terror attack in Pakistan, it does not make the pain any lesser. It hurts to see children dying for no fault of theirs. It pains immensely to live in an age when terrorists brutally and insensitively destroy beautiful buds that were yet to bloom. No holy book, no faith calls… Continue reading Terror Knows No Other Name!
Firstly, a very happy New Year to you dear friends. Rather later in the day you might say?

He was in trouble, real trouble. This much I could see. He ran here and there trying to protect himself from something he himself did not know, understand or see. His mind was going haywire, his body in pain, and thoughts, well, the less said the better. The vehicles on the road appeared scary. He ran into a place which seemed desolate. Stairs appeared before him. He climbed them all till he could climb no more. Suddenly, a dog appeared before him from nowhere. Its bark tormented him, scared him and reminded him of what he was and what he had become. In desperation he scratched the dog leaving the dog scamper away howling.

Here we are fuming over rise in prices. Here, we are talking about our irritating next door neighbour who has nothing better to do than gossip about all and sundry. What then, would we have to say about the Bhopal tragedy with over 25 years shoved under the carpet of a dangerous, invisible and silent killer whose repercussions still eerily plague the people of Bhopal? Breathlessness, infertility, cancer, TB, recurrent abortions, psychiatric problems are common occurrences today for the poor helpless people not to leave out damage already caused and still being caused to the lungs, kidneys, livers and brains of people who did not deserve this. What more would one need to complete a terrifying and frustrating tale? How long will this continue?
