#Haiku Neighbours-At war

Neighbours fighting war!

Hills awakened by echoes.

Whistling wind in gorge.

( This was spurred by a weekly prompt “Neighbours” on Eugi’s blog and refers to the unfortunate skirmish between China and India in Galwan valley recently)

Born in the year 1968, my childhood was spent amidst the beautiful scenic landscape of a small town in India, Ranchi. Though an engineer by qualification, reading, writing and cooking are my passions. Another thing that I am passionate about is my country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the whole of India. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.

  1. Well done and I love your line “Hills awakened by echoes.”. The skirmish between China and India is very unfortunate. Here in the U.S., we’re having our problems, as well.

    1. Thank you! Am so happy that you like it! Yes, it’s the most unfortunate thing that could have happened especially in the midst of this pandemic. That beautiful place will never be the same again and damage to nature will again be a great collateral damage that will happen because of this skirmish. Sad!
