Riot 

My visit to my home town after a gap of five years gave me a jolt.

The beautiful building which housed the happy, harmonious and fun-loving, joint family members of a particular community was now a ruin.

It happened when a riot took place over a minor conflict between two communities.

This was an opportunity for the miscreants from both communities to kill, rape and loot property of each other.

Though ours was a peace-loving, compatible, harmonious locality, no one could save them from the fury of a mindless, faceless, frenzied mob.

What heinous crime a mob can do in the name of community and religion!

shackles

happy in their shackles
of caste, creed and community
people never try to break away
as fortune tellers parrot
happy in its captivity
with food shelter and security
never tries to fly away
