This is what I genuinely feel and it is not said for effects.
If we can get anyone back from the dead, then we need to get back Humanity.
Incidences ranging from the tortured deaths of mute, stray animals to cases like Nirbhaya’s, underline (in bold) the demise of this basic human characteristic.
(If we can get back someone, then it should be these souls who deserved to live a complete life).
To make sure that such incidences do not repeat, we need to regain humanity – and not just for a day, but forever.

Here are two different sides of the coin called — LIFE!
She glanced around her pretty new nest
all neat and everything in place.
Heavens had all broken loose out there,
but was so warm and cosy in this nest of hers.
Wind crashed on the windowpane
with crazy whirl of lashing rain
she smiled and hummed,
waiting for him to return.
And then came the call, so sharp like that bolt…..
one more life had been claimed by the insane downpour!
…….Once, on a rainy day!
Darkness gathered and the clouds lowered on the earth,
the pain and the raging storm all began at once.
All by itself, their shanty stood on a desolate dot,
no one there to call and no vehicle around the spot.
Waves after waves of that killer pain,
hit her like the thrashing of the rain.
Helpless and trembling old parents,
only could watch in distress…
Cried aloud and she wreathed in torment,
but no help in sight at that moment….
Then above the thunder of the storm,
slowly whimpered a tiny little cry….
Fighting the odds and the elements,
a life had dared to enter the planet!
…….Once, on a rainy day!
Old country-side is fast changing into modern constructions, especially on the outskirts of the metropolitan cities.
In the foreground is the Tulsi Katta or a special place for Holy Basil, which is often found in the courtyards of the old country-side houses. Just across the road are under-construction, tall, high-rise buildings – a sign of modernisation. This is the transition evident in the developing parts of the big cities.
