The Forbidden Fruit


The world is broken, fraught with lies, murders, assassins and corrupt ruthless humans. Why are they even called humans when so inhumane is their nature?  Humans live on discrimination. To be more powerful than someone pleases them, gives them a sense of security. Such is the human nature that even if we all were to belong to the same caste. colour, creed, worship the same God, live in the same territory, we would find another reason to be prejudiced against.
It is hard not to be tempted to the sinful fruit pulped with wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony. The seven deadly sins. The short-term gains are alluring. It is over-whelming to see two brothers raised by the same mother be filled with so much malice with not even a tear to shed if they killed each other.
What does man not do to satisfy his greed?  The flame of selfishness burns brightly in his eyes. Pride swallows modesty. Chivalry has died. Our life is all about being ostentatious. It is a gamble of the worth of our jewels, clothes and cars, of the number of followers or the number of ‘likes’.
As soon as this bubble of fame and luxury pops and all our valuables go down the drain, that is when we close our eyes  and repent but unfortunately we realise it is just too late to undo what has already been done.

Peace And War

A very small passage but as said earlier I write when I am interested.

Over the endless seas peace and war met.
The environment reverberated,dreading this sacrilegious meet.
A horizon of joys and pains, of victories and losses, 
of agony and happiness, of death and rebirth loomed in the sky.
Peace sang a melodious lullaby while war screeched a cacophony.
The harsh sound of death-feeding war dominated the soothing tune of love.
But gradually the comforting tune of peace swallowed the discordant sound
and with a blazing white flash, war fell on the ground.
