What, according to you, is the virtue that the world stands most in need of today? #NeededVirtue [Indispire Edition 403]
A little more sensitivity will make the world a far better place.
Can the wind kiss the leaves without shaking them so much as to make them fall? Green leaves quivering in the breeze that caresses them fondly fills my heart with romance.
Often they are like lovers in an embrace.
Sometimes like the infant in its mother’s arms.
The cool touch of the misty air on my face as I ride my scooter early in the morning. Sensitivity.
Palpable was the moisture of the moonlight that was asleep on the village road until it got up and walked away as the dawn broke. Sensitivity is ephemeral. Like the rainbow somewhere far, far away.
The sun begins to lash soon.
At the market junction, the loudspeaker blares charming slogans whose hollowness penetrates into the marrow of my bones.
Is it impossible for politics to be sensitive?
Is it impossible for the religious teachers to be sensitive?
Can the politician be a gentle breeze in Shaheen Bagh?
Can flowers replace the barbed wires in Singhu?
Can the gods in the temples on my way smile?
The sun is burning my skin.
I take U-Turn and go back home.
I’ll protect the smiles still left there.
From my leaders.
