Travelog: Mumbai- 30th November, 2008

Mumbai, 30th November 2008– the morning after:

Mumbai, 30th November 2008
Mumbai, 30th November 2008

The people yes
The people will live on.
The learning and blundering people will live on.
They will be tricked and sold and again sold
And go back to the nourishing earth for rootholds,
The people so peculiar in renewal and comeback,
You can’t laugh off their capacity to take it.
The mammoth rests between his cyclonic dramas.

The people so often sleepy, weary, enigmatic,
is a vast huddle with many units saying:
“I earn my living.
I make enough to get by
and it takes all my time.
If I had more time
I could do more for myself
and maybe for others.
I could read and study
and talk things over
and find out about things.
It takes time.
I wish I had the time.”

The People, Yes by Carl Sandburg

  1. somehow I have a feeling, somewhere someone is always curious about…. some thing….
    and ‘YES’, find time for the same!!
