Pongal: A Reminder

Time is tense; past and the present

Not a bright day to celebrate

The night is still on, dark and gloomy

With no sight of dawn..


When bombs fall around our loved ones

With no roof to cover their dignity

Hunger and thirst goes unnoticed

By the wrath of God or someone related to our almighty..


But we can still thank for

What we have until this morning

What we hope for tomorrow, near and the distant future

So, what we gather next become treasures

To cherish, preserve and for many more Happy Pongals to come..
