How about a poem that could stir your soul in these times of despair? A feeling of sadness in these dull and gloomy days, actor Sobhita Dhulipala sums it up the story in a few lines.
“I am afraid.
My heart aches, my television aches.
Our beloveds taken away, like offerings.
In the promise of a painless afterlife.
God sits under a Gulmohar tree,
Watching big men act like small men
His gilded binoculars giggling,
As every mortal is reduced to a merchant.
There is a pyre in my backyard, brother
I fold my fears into flowers every night,
Invent new jokes to tell my frail mother
While an anthem burns under my tongue.”
