We are playing cricket in the outskirts of our village...

He is looking at us with apprehension ...

He is hesitating to come near to us...

Obviously, the societal customs are stopping him to join us in the game...

He knows very well about the drastic consequences  ...

Nope, he is not an untouchable ...

But we are ...

Colours of Earth

I don't listen to God...
While empathizing with the grievances of melting mountains
While cleaning the fishes in oiled seas 

While listening to the weighing sagas of monsoon clouds
While removing the chemical
thorns from the river beds

I don't listen to God...
While cleaning my internal organs with the inhaled air 
While tasting the salt of war victim's tears
While recollecting the names of Bhopal  gas disaster victims

I don't listen to God...
While the breeze over dried crops expanding the holes in my banian, like amoebas 
While painting the agony of farmer's suicides  
While reading their unwritten suicide notes
While taking care of young calves whose mothers are sent to slaughter houses

I don't listen to God...
While searching for the lost nests of birds
While picking up insects for the handicapped birds
While admitting those insect’s kids in orphanages
While patting the heads of thousands of wild animals 

While dropping an ant in its homeland, which mistakenly took flight to another country

I don't listen to God...
While filling the breasts of African mothers 
While helping poor farmers in gathering pesticides 
While assisting a child in separating the rice from soil  
While stitching the patches of child labourer's clothes
While searching for humans in concrete jungles

I don't listen to God...
While collecting the black smoke of development
While bearing the poisonous whip lashes of corporate greed 
While watching the last process of photosynthesis

I don't listen to God...
While writing memoirs for every fallen dried leaf and flower
While sculpting the names of cut down trees and cleared forests 
While preserving those yet to be hybridized virgin  plants
While sharpening the teeth of week seeds, struggling to crack the earth’s chemical surface

PS : Saving Earth is not just saving Green, it is about every colour.

Why saving Green Lives ???

I would like to share a discussion between my friend Raghava  and me regarding saving "Green Life" about which I wrote in my post Forest Talks

 Raghava says, ...

Here, most of us are neglecting the fact that it took over 4 billion years for the intelligent life forms like humans to emerge on this planet, and it’s only during the past 200,000 years, through the reign of human existence the planet’s balance is shattered like anything.

And if we think that Earth will be left in chaos, and we are endangering other species, we are sucking out every possible natural resource and slowly but surely making the Earth inhabitable to any kind of life form, we are totally wrong. It is “us” who will perish, Earth has a seen a million catastrophes like these, it has withstood, millions of years of ice ages, billions of asteroid impacts, worst possible conditions that humans can ever imagine, the planet works in a completely different astronomical time-lines, and during those times, we will not survive, if we do not change our attitude towards Mother Earth, we will perish, and this time there will be no remains….

Whatever we’ve done and doing right now is nothing compared to what Earth has endured over these billions of years.

Earth and life recovered, sometimes even benefited, from every other major catastrophe. It's this ability to deal with catastrophe that's a truly special thing about Earth.

Earth can cope with anything we can throw at it. We could clear all the jungles, but a jungle can re-grow over a few thousand years. We could burn all Earth's fossil fuels, flooding the atmosphere with carbon dioxide, but even then it would take the planet only a million years or so for the atmosphere to recover.

Even the animals we're wiping out will eventually be replaced by others equally rich in diversity, as the relentless work of evolution continues. It's only a question of time. The Earth will be just fine. That's not to say that the rapid changes we're forcing on Earth don't matter. That's because humans operate on a different timescale. We've evolved to live in the world as it is now.

So, in changing this world, we're altering the very environment that has allowed the human race to thrive. We could be creating conditions that threaten the long-term survival of our civilization.

So, all this stuff about saving planet Earth, well, that's not the problem.

Planet Earth doesn't need saving.

Earth is a great survivor. It's not the planet we should be worrying about,

it's us.


I say , ...

I agree with him and I dont agree with him....
And also, i agree with myself and i dont agree with myself...

Confused eh?

When the word EVOLUTION creeps in, nothing stands before it ..... nothing seems to be valid. .... neither creation nor destruction, except the universal process of transformation of energy from one state to another where the words like justice, morality, equality, ethics, values, conscience, blah blah are just bull shit words and cease to exist as they are just our convenient subjective and manipulative interpretations. Then you and me are just chemical carbon compounds.  Everything on earth will be restricted to physics, chemistry and few numbers, not even biology.

Anything on earth can be justified in the name of Evolution and anything can be opposed in the name of same evolution .

In this universe only one thing is constant. DOMINATION. There are only two categories of elements. One which dominates and one which gets dominated. It all depends on which side of the coin we are. 

The green exploitation and injustice  can be a tog of war between you and me. The same exploitation and injustice can be the same tug of war between us and the future generations. The question is  which exploitation are we going to oppose/support ?

Ex : I can support using plastic by sticking to the fact that Earth will eventually digest it in some finite years. Though the consequences will be troublesome for future generation i can throw the blame on EVOLUTION. (CAPITALISM)

I can oppose plastic usage by advocating the same fact of earth evolution but by adding an emotional perspective with words like "Our future generations/Mother earth/Our planet/Mother nature"(SOCIALISM).

Both are correct in their own perspective.

The most naked truth is that there will be always a tug of war between the  people who dominate and who gets dominated.

PS : You can share your views and opinions on "Green Living"

Playground - 77 Fiction.

Note:- 77 Fiction infers to fictional writings bounded to a maximum of 77 words.


Though he was 11 years old, he used to play cricket with boys much older to him.

That day, he was fielding at boundary line.

He dropped a catch in the previous over.
Then, he got one more chance to prove his catching skills.

He was running towards the ball in the air which was 20 meters away from him.

Before he could catch it, his hands caught something else.

It was a misfired rocket by the US military.

PS : In Afghanistan , the attacks on thousands of civilians and children has become quite common in the name of "misfired rockets".

When i asked you "How were you doing?"
Your success replied me

When i hugged you in appreciation,
The Pepe and Levi's hugged me in turn 

When i walked with you
Your Nike made strides

When i asked you academic doubts 
Your MNC tag laughed at me  

When i asked you for time
Your TAG Heuer answered me

When you hosted a party in Taj
The luxury received me

When i called you in dire needs
Your iphone replied me to call later

When i received you at airport
Your superiority pushed me aside.

When i proposed for an Irani chai,
The coffee day interrupted me

When i expressed about my passions
Your Achievements made you deaf

When i asked you to listen,
You were listening to social networking

When i shared my weighing problems
Your head weight ignored them

When i was at my low
Your pride was glad for that

When i was in the wrong direction
You had encouraged me
When I was in the right path
You had warned me

When i asked you all these things
You asked me, "Dont you have self respect?"

Where were you my friend?
Hiding in between Brands and Tags
Anyways, were you hiding from yourself too?

Finally , when i fell down in life
Your wicked smile revealed
the hidden enemy in you, My Friend!!!

I am not grudging against you,

When I congratulated you,
My Jealousy did it

When I hugged you
My envy did it

Whenever i called you
My Stomach was burning

Whenever i gave you a pat
My malice did it

When you received me in Skoda
I couldn't digest it

When you missed your promotion
I celebrated it with others

We were friends, in theory.
You thought i was budging
but i was making nimble moves

It wasn't about my failure
It was about your success
It wasn't about my success
It was about your failure

I was not trying to climb up
I was trying to bring you down

Now, i too got success,
Let me unmask myself
It is time for my TAG Heuer
to show my real stuff

Whenever we smiled at each other
We were more hidden than real but
The world  still knows us as best friends

Claude Louis Hector has wisely said, "God, save me from my Friends, I can manage my Enemies".

Sick - 55 Fiction

Note:- 55 Fiction infers to fictional writings bounded to a maximum of fifty-five words.


It is paining him again.

His age of seven could not tolerate it anymore.

Raju has been suffering from one of the widespread diseases for last 3 years.

In his case it is hereditary.

In spite of so much scientific advancement, medical science is yet to invent remedy for it.

It is Chronic.

It is Hunger.

PS : Nearly 212 million people suffer from chronic hunger and undernourishment in India, while others spend their time trying to lose weight.

Vizag and Warangal

This post is a part of Blogadda's Travel Photos contest where we have to display top five travel pictures clicked by us .

This picture is taken at Ramakrishna beach, Vishakapatnam on the Bhogi Day(Sankranthi festival). I had to wait  nearly 30 minutes for the boat to sail through the trail of sun image in the sea . On bhogi day, people will gather here in early mornings to celebrate Bhogi by creating heaps of flames . The Kailasa giri hill near this beach is a major tourist attraction .
 This picture is taken at Laknavaram lake, Warangal. This hanging bridge is a major tourist  attraction over there.  Warangal has got many historical temples like Ramappa temple, Thousand pillars temple etc.

This picture is taken at Laknavaram lake, Warangal. Though it appears to be a natural one, it was built by Kaakathiya kings. Serene, soothing and sublime. What appealed me is the shades of blue gradually diminishing into pale brown. This lake appears like a secret lake amidst the forest.

This picture is taken on the way to Araku valley, near Vishakapatnam. Actually we were suppose to catch the train, but we missed it and took the road way instead. We had to chase the train to click it amidst the winter  morning . This train passes through nearly 50 tunnels and many small bridges across the valley. Araku is also known as Andhra Ooti. As usual, the railway track was laid by the British for easy transportation of iron ore. Borra caves and Katiki water falls are other major tourist spots in Araku valley.

  This picture is taken at Rushikonda beach, Vishakapatnam . I deliberately avoided to show the faces of those kids riding on the horse . One of my best pictures i have clicked till now. What made me impacting is the way the girl holding her little brother.  Rushikonda beach is one of the beautiful beaches in Vishakapatnam and it has got resorts near by.
