The vibrant it is…The lactiferous it is
Through millions…Never complaining
Our ravaging ambitions..Our greed than need..
To spoil the blood of Red sand dunes…
How does it feel??
To suck our blood drop by drop
To make it concrete gray…
With a pretext that life if infused us…
Like on a ventilator…
Artificial from surface to the core…
A life stream that is running thru ages
The only thing that we can give
To a not so fearful future generations
What a fate… that we have to ask us
TO SAVE US!!
The dunes witnessing our greed
Silently…helplessly…our foolish deeds
Of creating plastic heaps of material lives
Concrete loads of cadavers’
The land once so rich welcoming all..
With great grief looking at the
Peeling of layer by layer of its
Precious wealth carefully wrapped for future generations
Now…looking with helpless anguish…
Like a woman whose wares are being stripped..
Just to dominate her natural beauty with
Borrowed fashions of bygone eras
Every particle of sand…particularly saying this..
To an unhearing audience…
Warped in their minds..
In multiplexes and maddening malls…
Whispers a noise behind…
To look at the blazing and bleeding
Red sand dunes …
So vibrant they are …so lactiferous they are..
It’s not just danger for them!!
It’s CODE RED to NATURALLY BORN HUMAN
Given by nature… albeit so naturally!!!
ITS CODE RED FOR OUR COLD BLOODED GENERATION!!
[In Visakhapatnam, due to rapid expansion of the city, the red sand dunes paved the way for concrete structures and multi-storeyed buildings between the Naval Coastal battery and Peda Waltair. Yendada and adjoining villages on the outskirts of the city also had abundant red sandhills. But the red hills were gradually flattened in the course of various constructions that came up along the beach…. Its my wail for a treasure we are losing ever and forever!!]
