A strange sight
P K Routray
Out of fun and curiosity,
I surveyed my house, town and country
from net via a goggle map
I could locate my house and lane
I could distinguish
the thatched cottages and big edifices
colored lights and dark patches
found the earth
with blue and green colored wide coverage.
I could not see any boundary
of colored demarcation
separating the countries
or demarcation based
on cast, creed and religion
but only could vividly see
poor and rich distinction
from dwelling places, dark patches
and flora fauna destruction.
From a space craft
aiming for the Mars and the Moon
the apex of our scientific achievements
the astronauts there on
may be seeing like me
No distinctive boundaries of countries
of localities specially differentiated
based on caste, creed sect, cult or religion
but may be seeing different social conditions.
Perhaps the man is getting the wisdom
from such achievements
and corollary observations,
unlike Hiroshima and Nagasaki
to be united as one,
to dance in harmony, peace and equality,
and to make the earth greener.
It is my derivative conclusion.
