Politics in the Woods

An intriguing capture , by my friend Deepak Amembal, at the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in the northern parts of Mumbai.  Posted on his Mumbai-Daily blog.

It is as if two special folks, oblivious of each other, and intent on something, have arrived  amidst a splash of color, in a sun splashed  opening of the woods.

The "intent"  intrigues.  And then you see some parallels somewhere.  High fliers, and those that change colors.....

Read on.

So many
camouflaged by the
Green of the public woods,

safely hidden amidst
ordinary types
getting on with their lives,
building nests,
saving for the future
quietly moving around,
changing the color
of their thoughts and doubts,
a few
who move away.

Some ambitious high fliers,
and some who quietly
slither around
changing colors
and parties on demand,
alighting every now and then
on five star flowery places.

These two
ideally suited for
, should one say,
Politics ?
