The truth

Grounded realities make for consistent bed fellows The sweetest pleasure though is found on top of the highest cloud This aimless search for meaning has made us more shallow It has made us blind, lost in divinity's shroud Let the dices fall where they may On the table or on the board There's no meaning of the night and day The universe begins and ends by the sword The universe begins and ends by the sword This is the truth and nothing more Vast multitudes of villainous hordes Outnumber the heroes by thousands and more This is the truth and their is no shame The strong bury the weak The wild bury the tame The submission of the shy and meek To those barbaric and depraved This is the truth why don't you understand Victory set in stone of the final defeat Like the water over the land Puddles collect even now around your feet You win until your losing hand

Thanks for posting. But my article is nit about religion politics but about the migrant labor who are working in far away states. Due to covid19, unemployment due to covid 19, panic and poverty they are traveling back to their hometown 1000s of km away.Due to lockdown all the railway station and other public transport are shutdown.

Regarding religion-Don't trust bbc world or media trying to build the gap. INDIA is and always will be secular democratic country with Unity in Diversity.
My article is not about religion based politics but the plight of migrant labor who are stuck in state thousands of Km away. It is about life of poverty. Locals, media are trying as much as possible but strong policy is required to help lakhs of people migrating 1000+km By THEIR Foot. Yes By Walking.
Not every news of India is about religion ❤️
