What is the worth of human life?
what is the worth of human life?
Why what would you get by taking it away?
What would you get by not showing another day?
Why would you want to kill?
Why would you want to suppress people?
What will you get if you hurt others?
What will you get if you split lovers?
What will you get if you break a leg?
What will you get if you make others beg?
Why would anyone want to kill?
why would you want people to freeze still?
Is fear the right rule?
why kill others to satisfy your duel?
Why, is it fair to harm others,
is it right to spoil the creators?
What gain is worth so much blood?
what gain is worth, by raining down a hellish flood?
What bad did the people do?
What bad did the people do?
except being innocent and nothing to do with you.
Is fighting worth it?
Does chopping a couple of heads settle it?
whose life are they anyway?
for you to relish and throw away?
Whose life is it anyway?
for to weigh and say?
Why do you want to kill,
and send down panic shrill?
The world has many other ways,
haven’t battles been won with peaceful says?
Please we understand you have been hurt,
please understand that we all are also being hurt,
we are willing to help you,
for it is the same fire in us,which is in you.
We are willing to help you,
We will teach you,
that we humans are capable of love too.
So stop this,let us settle our dues,through
not blood or pain,
for when life is lost it can’t come back again,
so let us understand each other,
let us notice what we did was not for the better.
this is not for me or for you-not for us,
but for your dear future.If you want them to love us,
and see as good predecessors,
let us not call ourselves bombers or killers,
but as lovers.Let us not hurt each other,
let us all call each other as brothers and sisters.
let us learn the language of love,
there is nothing below or above.
Let us all forget hypocrisy
let us relish that we are a part of humanity.
Let us celebrate the worth of life,
let us just for a change be nice.
So we will drop our guards
and you drop your weapons.
No one will kill ever again.
No one will ever kill again,
no this is not a dream,
this is the will of the ever lasting stream,
the stream,which beat down in ancient times,
the stream which stores all the rimes,
so to flow with the flow,
let us let go,
of violence,let us savor,
a new,profound understanding silence.
Live and let live,
but love and let others love.
the light shines the brightest.
This is my reaction to the recent serial bombings in Bangalore and Ahmadabad and also the book “A Thousand Splendid Suns.”
About Democracy,hypocrisy and unity
July 4, 2008 § 10 Comments
I am feeling damn irritated right now.Well might be the fact that my hits are down today,well know i was pissed off even before that,so what is it?Was it the fact that i paid Rs.70 for the 5-6 kms journey from school to home? Or is it because i am seeing a lot of hypocrisy around me?I think that must be it.
So people this is about democracy now.What is democracy?
According to me it is the biggest hypocrisy.Why where do i find people choosing what they want? Why the ‘society’ seems to have its own way.The majority is right,seems to be notion.Democracy is where you can smoke under a no smoking board.democratic nation is one which,people are divided into clusters and galaxies and constellations and lose all sense of nation pride.I have written a few poems on India.Why infact the poem which set me into serious writing was on India.Yet for all i love my country and its heritage,the hypocrisy which i live in between seriously make me wonder is this what we all deserve.Why ,is one religion superior to another? Now when i say religion in India,it means so many things.We have the cine gods,we have the sports idols and we have the political czars.Each one has their own cult.Now that is not a problem,we have influential people right.But the problem is what they do.The word “Secular” in our preamble,comes to my mind.I don’t need to say more.Then we have the problem of corruption.Ha,well now all of us have gone through this isn’t it? Then we have the problem of sharing among states.Then we have the problem of terrorism.then we have the problem of child abuse,then gender inequality,then well if i were to write it would be an endless list but
The problem lies in the fact that,people cannot appreciate their own identity.Now why would i care,about my nation when my window is so small that i only see myself and the cynical world around me? We can write books upon books,article upon article on the pride of our ancient nation,but do the lovely writers of these wonderful books,even know that people who can afford to read these books are very few? Why the masses are a political tool,if you really have faith in what you say,get out and hold the mike and spread the message.You the great economists and artists and writers and what not what else should know that the only way to get people together is by weaving the magic of words.Why you all even go as far to write about Gandhiji ,didn’t he speak ? Didn’t he come out? Why isn’t the pulpit the best place for spreading the message? until you do that,all you have written will be garbage.Your articles/books gets its worth only when you act and when you show.If you all think that we need to spread the message of unity,then get out there and spread the message of unity.The anti-socials have already done it.They infest and harvest young minds faster than our agriculture sector is growing.Soon they might take over us and we will become the anti-social.So get out and get going.
To conclude :
is full of fascination.
Yet it needs a little bit of emancipation.
For this we need life to be elevated,
view to be appreciated.
and freedom harvested,
faster then we get polluted.
For unity to be forged,
we need to adore,
each other and what ever is our abode,
we need to invent our approach.
For understanding to be reached,
things shouldn’t be preached,
but put to everyone’s reach.
For the sake of our nation,
let us be in unison.
unity will be our strength,
we will not depend,
and we will not bend,
India a nation of a billion.
