Mag: Chennai Rains

PC: Adolphe Valette
In this city, it rained like never before
In this city, where sunshine turns people sore

Flooding is not just the city
But the houses too, Oh What a pity?

Its not just the skies that opened
But, the hearts and doors of houses too

A foe turned friend
Helping hands became the trend

Roads turned into canals
Places where cabs & rickshaws moved, now was replaced by boats

Rescued were people from their houses
They saw their belongings drenched & afloat

When people in this city were out of food
The whole country came together to do some good

After 12 days of ordeal
Chennai, saw the strength of no biggies but just its people

This post is a dedication to the rains that happened in Chennai in December.
Pray to all

  1. Thoughtful piece. It's amazing to see people deal with disasters and makes one think of their own mortality.

  2. Oh my you did have an awful flood. I hope things are a bit better now?

    1. Things are almost back to normal
      But the fear is still there
      Thanks for dropping by Kathe :-)

  3. Isn't it odd that water, so lifesaving, can also be so destructive. Hope things are improving there now.

    1. I so agree with you Susan. Things are improving but it has instilled a small fear in people's hearts.


Hey, Your comments would encourage me to write more.
