Writing 101, day 10-
Let the scene write itself
I’m sitting on a rock on the sea beach watching immersion of Idols of Goddes Durga. Just four days ( some celebrate for 9 days as Navaratri) ago we were worshiping her with full fun and frolics, with flowers and sweets. Now it is time for her to go back to her abode hence the immersion in the sea.
Scene 2 –
After one week I’m sitting at the same place. I observed remnants of the those beautiful idols washed ashore by the waves. Sea never keeps anything. It returns whatever is offered to it.
It makes me think
Why we are arrogant, stubborn and hyper
Why we fight for class, color, cast or creed
Why we have become so intolerant
Why we are not compassionate, compatible and friendly
There are so many whys…
Why for petty things we pull out dagger
When the end is same for the king or beggar
