Bombay Rains & Nature

Bombay Rains
Moment of nature's fury is all it takes to wipe out all of "it" from the face of earth
Man's fury tries to do that every second, till his death :-(

Nature
Rains that knew no bounds
37 inches in hours
Hundreds of people dead in a single day
That was Bombay

Lands that know no rain
3 inches a year
Thousands of people die every year
That is Tamil Nadu (not just TN)
Does Nature know no communism ? Why this disparity/discrimination ?

P.S : Don't miss the Musical Blast Post below

A very poetic description of two current issues, you took 6 lines to describe the problems of 10 million people.

Arvind:

nice...
Arvind,
nature is driven by DHARMA or cosmic oreder acccoding to sanaathana dharma. according to science weather and associated phenomena are subject to chaotic dynamics. I guess Dharma operates through nonlinear dynamics as well.

Anand,

Good point that :-)

@anonymous,

Yes life/nature is full of such occurences - the parting shot at the post should indicate why i was forced to take a 'view' unlike in other posts :-)

I guess Nature always teaches people a lesson that everything external is impermanent.
