SHORT STORY: HUNTING WITH THE LION

Copyright@shravancharitymission

    Once upon a time there happened to be a hot and dry summer. The animals in the forest were troubled because of the heat and were beginning to find it difficult to get food.

    A bear, a wolf and a jackal thought it would be better to join hands with a lion and do the hunting. So, they approached the lion. He agree readily. The four of them went off hunting. 

    After some arduous efforts the hunting party came across a buffalo. The fox and wolf chased the buffalo. The bear intercepted the buffalo. The lion killed him. 

    The fox made shares out of the buffalo. When they were about to take their shares the lion roared and said, “Well friends, the first share is mine for my leadership. The second share is mine for, it is I who killed it. The third share is also mine because I need it for my cubs. Anyone who needs a share can take the fourth. But before that you will have to win me.” 
    All the three left the place without a single word. 
    Moral: Might is right.

POEM: DHAKA TERROR

Copyright@shravancharitymission

 

You adventured to kill, but in the process, you too got killed,

And one wonders, who asked you to kill?

For if it wasn’t your teachers, and friends in college,

Your peers in places, your siblings and folks indoors,

And God in heaven,

Just who was it, who asked you to kill?

*

You shot so many in a bloody,

When someone had to shoot you in a scurry,

You stood for someone unknown,

Trusted him more than the known,

But was it for any holy throne?

*

To you sermons through social media mattered more,

And not the grace of Holy Text,

Nor the lineage of societal touch, that you chose to ignore,

You hallucinated, as if killing was the right path,

And the rest needed to be ignored.

*

And now when you’re gone,

Leaving behind a storm,

God says,

Son I had sent you there,

To conquer the storm, and not to create a storm.

*

Where the world was your oyster,

And so much was still there for you,

As you had hardly arrived,

To create capture and destroy,

*

But isn’t it sad my son,

That you only created the bloody killings,

Destroyed human values,

And, captured the Holy Grail.

*

And remember my son,

If all would start killing who will create,

And for you,

Without seeing the world,

Without feeling the world,

And without admiring the world,

You decided to slaughter the world,

So now remain unwept and unsung,

In your unrealized world,

While my slain sons and daughters shall rest with me in peace.

**

This is a tribute to all those killed in Dhaka terrorist attack. Most of the terrorists who struck here were young and from high families so then how did their values change so much in a short period of time that they created this mayhem?
