Will you ever learn?

Through the lens of the dog…

Oh Man! You are the dumbest species I have seen.

Your insensitive attitude towards your home, your planet continues to baffle me.

You build vast technology driven systems, things work at the press of a button, yet you seem to have lost the connect with your life.

The buildings you construct kiss the sky, but from above, you’ve failed to keep tab on the ground realities that are so vital for survival.

You bulldoze the greens in the name of development, failing to realize that you are axing the supply of air needed for your children tomorrow.

Money, power and expansion seems to be your only mantra, forgetting the core values of humanity.

With medical advancement, sadly the lines at hospitals have also grown longer.

Gadgets seem to control your lives, people hardly matter.

Climate change, covid, growing inequality, water shortage, increasing pollution and plastic choking all seem to attract headlines as breaking news or conclude in conclaves of world dignitaries to meet and discuss. Most times the measures to curb the problems are just on paper.

Man, why do you not learn from the catastrophes that have befallen you? I am indeed appalled at your callousness.

We animals may not be as intelligent as you are, but we are definitely wiser.

You live as if there is no tomorrow.  Hope your children don’t pay the price of your mistakes.

Oh Man, Will you ever learn?

Changing Face of Time!

Life took its first breath eons ago

traversing on its path of evolution since.

A multitude of changes ensued,

with time, the only constant.

This journey witnessed a change in man’s perception of time,

from sceptical approximations to a profound science.

With concrete theories postulated about its origin

measurement of time evolved too.

A day seemed to have a lot more time then,

relaxed carefree moments, now only a memory.

Days and years, a lose connotation of time in history,

is now dissected to milli, micro and nano seconds,

precision being paramount.

Today time’s shadow, has eclipsed man’s life.

 His journey from the cradle to grave

is a constant run against the clock

that oscillates between the hanging dagger of time.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #172 : Components of time

A matter of perspective!


In between the first cry

and the last breath

we live our lives,

dominate the earth.

It appears

long enough to be termed

a life time!

 The wider picture seen

from the infinite cosmic universe

changes perspectives.

Eras shrink to insignificance,

only to realise,

In the end,

we were just a moment!

Godoggocafe’s Tuesday Writing Prompt :Write a piece of prose or poetry that ends with,” in the end, we were just a moment.

Lines & Angles!

In response to Cee’s black & white photo challenge : Lines Angles!

Reading between the lines,

the words connote a distinct meaning,

interprets a story with new angle.

While the essence remains the same,

life presents itself with a different perspective!




बेवफ़ा कौन? Who is Unfaithful?


ज़िन्दगी तो बेवफ़ा है,

जाने कब गले लगा ले

और कब ख़फा हो जाये,

पर मौत अपने वादे से

कभी नहीं मुकरती

बस एक बार जो गले लगती है

सदा के लिए अपना बना लेती है!


Life is two faced

one never knows,

when it embraces

or when it leaves us bitter

but, death never goes

back on its word

once it embraces you

it makes you its own!
