Arun tells us about city life, in this verse, in Different Truths.
The gush of light coming
Through the window,
The chirping of the birds,
The bell of the milkman,
The yell of the newspaper man,
The bustling life outside after the lull,
May not bring the owners
Of those industrious palms
The mellow morning
They so earnestly wait for.
For timely rain and sun;
A healthy harvest eclipsing
The toil and turmoil year-round,
To feed the humanity around,
May herald a morning
Diligent farmers rightfully deserve,
Sans a worry for survival.
Mustn’t we strive together for this,
A paltry requisite for a sublime wish?
