Impious Thoughts

It was on that bright sunny day,

I was supposed to see an inadvertent situation of pillage.

Someone hits a demented old man around the corners of a public road,

Where the whole crowd besides them were pretended to inquire about it.

He hits with a baleful piece of iron rod on that old man’s head,

Kicks him like a hipped fellow of suspended mental thoughts.

It  extends like a melodrama in front of the swiftly walking crowd,

And came to an end as the NATURAL death of that poor old man,

Which was an unarmed news seen on the next day daily newspaper. 

Note: Actually this was a REALITY that had happened in India few months back. The most harsh fact behind this share is that, here the “old man and he”  refers to “father and son” respectively. The reason behind this crooked crime was the inability of a son to take care of his father, who was following his sickly extended old-age days. This would always be an unbearable as well as unbelievable dreadful news that I had ever read. 😦 😦

    • Hmm, yeah! Our present society is passing through such a challenging worst 21st century, where these incidents are just a part of it and which does shows that in a well explained manner. Let’s hope for a new world of love and peace rather than these uncultured issues, Indira. 🙂


  1. What a terrible, terrible, sad story, Rahul. I get the feeling of the contrast between our worlds when I read this…which is not to say that terrible things don’t happen here. They do. All the time. But perhaps less publicly. More hidden. What a world we live in…I too hope for peace.
