Poem By RAJ NANDY
Our village roads have no side-walks,
One must lookout for bullock-carts,
cycles and motorbikes!
Cars are few, they make noise and kick-
up dust, -
To warn you generally in advance!
In the city I always use the side-walks,
It is always safer that way;
A habit difficult to break I must say!
Thus all my life I had been away from the
mainstream and on to the side;
Hoping that way I would better survive!
Now I keep plodding through the sunset
into the dusk, -
Hoping this side-walk will forever last!
