  4. hehehe.........Here, I'd like to praise your sense of humour, sensibility and satiric selection of words. You beautifully used the trio to give an impressive message. A very good lesson could be drawn from it that it is not enough to have all the qualities of greatness but we must have correct combination of it also. 'Hot head with cold heart' is not gonna make us great but vice versa. :)

    1. Satire it is Ravish but a really painful one... no other means is there to vent out one's angst and agony .... kab tak cheekhenge.. its satire only which lets us/me live.... yes the virtue is to have cool minds and warm hearts... Amen
      Thanks Ravish for your insightful words.. you always find something so nice and thought provoking to say :)

    1. Agree Indrani.. they are moving , specially the second one..
      And in the third one - the girl is actually named Khushi ... its such a cruel irony but also shows the hope and love the parents must be feeling for her - causing more pain to me ....almost cruel..

  14. Our leaders are much this way in the US. Hmmm...

    PS:I've been trying on and off for days (again over the months since I got back to the USA) to find a way to get a comment from wordpress to blogger. This capacity seems to be intermittent and vanishing. So I opened an ancient and unused blogger account to use for commenting on blogger accounts. But, alas, it doesn't link to me or my blog.

  16. Very true Kokila... What every common man thinks about the so called leaders, you have penned it effectively. Hardest truth is that whom this Haiku has addressed, will be cold to anything we write about them...

    1. Exactly... they are not cold but Frozen .. Dead ..... as frozen can be melted, dormant can be bloomed but dead can't be made living . In the land of dead feelings exist only as ghosts....
      Thanks dear for stopping by .. you are doing much catching up friend! :)
