Yesterday night I was returning home from a call by 10:00PM. I was coming through Saidapet. I happened to wait at a signal point. What I saw after that is troubling me till now…..
15 – 20 People of varied ages were sleeping in the pavement. They were not bothered by the sound of the horns, busy traffic, breath stopping smoke emanating from HMVs & the bright light that kicked of darkness. A two year old baby with nothing to support under the tiny head, on hard rock pavement, lying close to his/her mother, unmindful of the stinking drainage and mosquitoes was a pathetic scene. Except the solace of lying close to the mother’s love zone, what is it that the baby is experiencing ?
What are they doing with their lives ? Do they have a Profession (is it the right word)? Do they have a dream or is that also sleeping ? I could see with the way they were lying, that they had done hard physical work in the day that passed. No home, No possessions, No comforts ! All these at whose fault ? Is it God’s Plan ? Is it Society’s adventure ? Is it lack of education ? Is it the result of petty politics ? Nothing to talk about their lives but so much to think about !
Shiv Khera in his book “YOU CAN WIN” says – “Live when you are alive, Do not die before you are dead”. Are these people dead already ? I am sure Saidapet is not the only place witnessing there horrible things. Who is the Saviour of these Souls never searching anything in this amazing world?
