Priyadarshini is pursuing her final year B.Tech in Energy & Environmental Engineering from Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU), Coimbatore. She is presently doing an internship on Youth and Climate Change in South Asia at the Center for Environment Education (CEE), Ahmedabad. The following poem was penned by her after a visit to a slum.
Is it their mistake?
By Priyadarshini. B
I wonder if it is their mistake to be like that?
The day, a single thought that made a spark in my darkened mind.
One should not sit inside large rooms and talk about sustainable development,
Visit a slum and you will know what sustainability really means……
You live in a good room, still aiming for a better one?
Think about them - a house made full of waste you throw away,
and can’t imagine if rain comes? They sustain still…….
The room was not so very big, but it was to them!
Full of their possessions not really what we mean,
Jewels not really their torn clothes
Aside in a corner of theirs, we still want a new fashion…..
The plastic containers which you throw are their vessels for water storage
safely stored in the safest place, outside of their house!
I could see those children playing with their lively stuff
but it was a poor thing the street puppy!
Unable to resist but in one way giving a moment of happiness to them…
