“Mama take this badge off me,
I can’t use it anymore”
“A dream was slowly building its nest in my mind,
a dream to fly in high colours,
a wish to learn,
an urge of being taught..
the dream of education that ‘ll help me spread out my wings, so that i can bring everlasting smiles to all around me…”
Blurred up images conjures up in my mind, and then the sudden blow of our poverty and hunger shatters all of them waking me up of my reverie.. the privilege of wearing a school badge has long abandoned him…
Who is he? one of us? if so, why is he like this? if not , why not?
His eyes seemed to say in silence-
“My fancies are fireflies,
Specks of living light,
Twinkling in the dark..”
and what do they call me..’wandering souls of the reckless city’!
