Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

Screaming for justice

I wish I could describe in words the pain we both suffered, we were dragged we were hit continuously to finally separate us both and we could never be together again. Some say if your lost love is far away from you, you will slowly try to wash off those memories and start afresh. But look at my ill fate they made us stand right opposite to each other and made sure that we never met again, oh this pain is killing me, why this atrocity only because we looked beautiful together? We dint harm any of them in anyway. We always tried to do good to all of them.

Did they even know how strong we were bonded, we were together since ages. Love is something which has to be felt not told and so we never told each other that how much we needed to be together. Life was not easy for us we were also hit by difficulties. Strong rains of sentiments, fire of jealousy and winds of emotions hit us every now and then, but we hardly cared and all we wanted was to be together. None of these harmed us, we did not wither a bit instead we grew a stronger bond of love 

One monsoon day in the woods as we sat in our usual place enjoying the best of Mother Nature, we were so much in love that we did not notice these people seeing us. They did not take long, soon they returned and captured us, we both were shocked and we were helpless. They dragged us badly on the rough roads which immensely hurt us. There were lot of people seeing this agony of us but none felt like stopping them, none cared to say stop this treachery. All were praising them for finding us.

They tried a lot to separate us, we did not break we did not let go off each other though we both suffered so much pain and torture. I could no longer see him suffer so I finally broke and gave up the bond we had. I had to do it, I couldn’t see him suffer any more. And today we both have been sculpted as Pillars by these humans and are made to stand facing each other in front of this temple.


Oh Yes we were 2 trees bonded together in the woods, we never uttered a word but we were together for so long, we were blindly in love. If you cannot see the purest form of love and divinity in Mother Nature then what would you find in the temples which are built on our corpses? People who come here praise him and me for the scent of sandal which surrounds us but none notice the pain we both are suffering at this very moment. I stand here right in front of my beloved who is been sculpted into a pillar holding the loads of this so called divine place of yours which is for me is just a torture house.

The pain is there to remind me that I'm still alive, I am now standing here screaming for justice, can you hear me? Tell me which is higher my devotional love or your insane devotion? 


Whom do I call for my help now? the God you believe is no more there for me and the God I believe my Mother Nature, seems to be slave of humanity…

Raj said...

One of your finest works for sure. Your words reflect the pain and angst of nature in a searing anger. What are we if we cannot love nature and its creation? What good are we if we exploit nature for our own selfish needs? What is the point of celebrating God if we don’t respect God’s creations and treat them with compassion? Questions that humans need to answer or at least shed a tear of regret! A thought provoking and brilliant post!

Ramya said...

Jenny said...

How beautifully have you penned this down Ramya. Marvellous! I agree with Raj, after those set of poems(because of which I became your fan), this is the next best. I feel for those trees and that question about devotion. Bang on!

I know I have not done your tag. I have blogging for 2-3 months. I will so miss you all, but I will be reading. The time when I start blogging again, I will take this tag up. Sorry again!

Ramya said...

Bikramjit said...

I am so late .. I have jsut gotten very veyr busy this week :) so please do pardon..

Well I beleive that one who help themself get it all.. why ask for help from god or anyone .. because God asked us to help ourselves ..

I guess I have gone on a tangent here

Binu Thomas said...

Awesome way to convey the point Ramya! Mother nature is now unfortunately a slave of Human wrong-doings. However, God is still there and justice will eventually be done - irrespective of whether we witness the justice or not (personal belief).

Ramya said...

@Binu: yeah very true Binu waiting for the god to act on such things!!! he is the only hope. Thanks for the compliments

SO very beautiful Ramya, you captured the essence of the tree and how it feels! It is true that humans do a gazillion things in the name of
beautification/ comfort to hurt nature.
