Urban




my camera winks –
a perfect capture for
the urban crowd

---

morning traffic –
looks like a rally of
protestors

 ---

urban landscape –
tall buildings side by side
a marathon of doodles.

 ---

how they think
they know music –
these urban kids

 ---


urban mystery –
how they manage their meals
in under Rs 12.

(This one is, well, for the imprudent comments boasted and bragged by some of the Indian ministers that one can get a meal with Rs 12(even Rs. 5 and Re. 1) in his pockets. Seems like a mystery, yes.)

  1. Its not a mystery! It just brings forward the extreme disconnect the ministers have with the common people!

  3. Thank you. Appreciated the explanation at the end...and understand that bureaucrats think that money stretches like it was elastic.

    I find your verses creative and unique...very nicely done.

    Peace

  5. its no mystery for someone who is so disconnected with the people, i wouldn’t be surprised if they said food was free and abundant in this country…

    but, to the point, lovely haiku!

    1. I guess, we'll never know what goes on in their minds that makes them come up with such comments.

  13. The last one surely is a mystery ... perhaps the people who stated it have never ventured out of the confines of their luxuries.

  15. Your jibe at the 12 rupee meals says a lot about the fracas that prevails. What was once a baloney on the disconnect has now become a mockery of sorts. Lets hope time enshrines some sense in our rulers. :)
