Away From The Urban Jungle

Away From the Urban Jungle

written by: Dr. Shailja Sharma



Away from the urban jungle
I know a tap is running
And lush green leaves are waving to each other
In a village where life walks slow and still on the tonga
And the narrow streets have only a few foot-steps
Life lives differently there
Unlike how it behaves in an urban jungle
Here rainy days are different
Wish I could enjoy the sound of the rain
The rain noise is diluted here
With something that has no name
Paper boats are not available
To little hands anymore
