Nepal Earthquake Shuffles our Pressing Needs

Huge tremors in Nepal and across India sent another message to the humanity to respect the nature’s decision to reinvent herself as necessary. This episode which killed over 1500 in Nepal and in India close to 100 is neither due to pollution nor waste products. The Himalayan region is constantly under tectonic pressure between its plates deep in the earth. The outer lying causes such as glacier formation, avalanches play much insignificant role like a wave in the whole ocean under a tsunami.

Besides, the loss of human life what else is ignored and always escapes us are the biological changes in the Himalayan region. The future environment that is going to be drastically affected, due to tough terrain the issue of emerging floodplains unaddressed, and no forest and wildlife conservation.

The loss of human life is massive and those still in Nepal due to insufficient care facilities are definitely adding to the toll. It will take a while to settle this down and not to imagine the time for the bigger goals. The government, wherever, does not ever starts an orientation program.

In recent case of Sandalwood killings, it is sad that the native do not understand the legal implications of the process. If the conditions are so prevalent that lead them to fall to the trap laid by the smugglers, then why the state government did not checked the background issues.

In this case it is also necessary that before we come to basic orientation, the people should understand the necessity of its reach. The proper addressable system can start at any point, even today since in addition to Nepal, it is collective responsibility of the world to understand our environment and climate. The funds can pour from anywhere and the work can start.

The blueprint of the ecological changes occurring in the Himalayan region can also prove beneficial in studying other mountainous regions as well as the floodplains leading from them and independent. Every year, we have huge flood and mountain sliding problems occurring in Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttaranchal. The impact was less in Nepal because no breach was noticed, if any, in major rivers or dams/reservoirs. The situation might been more grave, had it occurred at any other place.

Echoes, my new poetry book

Echoes published by Write India is recently released in September.  It has been an amazing experience to through them once again and truly as desired they echo through mind and soul.

Here is blurb at back of book:

Consistency where life frames women in different roles and you feel inhabited.

In such serenity I sit and think saturated with thoughts.  A woman speaking of in her element perennially devises how way further will be for her without the barriers of struggle.  Nature is succour.  One easily connects with primal action born of thought. As innate as vital energy of mind and body, the poems here touch aspects of womanhood subliminally.

It would not be in woods or meadows far reaching only through echoes, it would beat deep inside throbbing and touching through aspects of life.



A Poem from Echoes:

Cold winds with those dark clouds
on my sky are my aspirations
where horizon of blue sublime,
tiny corpuscles of lime,
from where I have sprung and this haste
do I even know the melody…

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Moon and stars

moon again behind
the hills what
myth I build on my story


******

a star out of canvas
I am 
here with truth


*****

few stars in sky
and angles in and out 
can't locate more

******


only one more round
at moon hedge
full of jasmine
