Hurting eyes, worrried minds.....


The sort of stuff happening in the country today, I wouldn't want to be the Sun, traveling by in the sky, and being forced to watch everything.

Maybe this was what blogger friend Magiceye sensed, when he posted this amazing photo of the sky over Mumbai, yesterday evening, when we had some unusual violent altercation between a politician and common man in Delhi. (Man slaps Minister)...

Regardless of the wrongdoer and /or the wronged,  we need to worry when even the Sun tries to cover up ......

He traipses by
in the sky
benevolent
above the birds and trees,
watching
all the going-ons
in Mumbai;
strikes,
accidents,
fights,
slaps,
protests,
shaking his head
in despair,
in and out of the clouds.

Long days journey
into evening,
a rare winter nip
in the polluted air,
and the Sun,
tired,
worried,
and full of prayer,
pulls the dark cloud blanket
up to his neck,
before He sets for the night.
