High Up There, looking down....



This is a posting by my blogger friend Magiceye, as part of the Mumbai daily : Monochrome Mania .  A view of a concrete uprising,  in a northeastern  suburb of Mumbai, Mulund.

(This is amazingly unrepresentative of what comes to mind when one thinks of Mulund; huge highrises, crowds, shops crowding the ground floors, hawkers selling stuff, thriving markets etc etc. But Mulund is also near the Hills, and construction has slowly spread to these areas too.   So enjoy the impression this photo creates, of stately houses, in huge parks, canopies of trees and so on. We will not look below ......)....

Man of the World,
solid and prestigious,
impressive profile,
conservative build,
upper class,
looking down,
and a beacon
for those aspiring
to be a clone....

And
should there be
something to hide,
regardless of how many
fences and compounds
they erect
to hide the low stuff,
at the end of the day,
its the
good old Green
of the Earth,
selflessly
protecting you,
surrounding you,
for free,
a shade for children,
a haven for birds,
all the while,
oxygenating those
established,
high up there.....
