Man, Stay Put!
Mountains are there to echo the voice of God
Man, don't climb them and defile their sanctity.
Rivers are there to nurture the fauna and flora of the earth.
Man, don't pollute them and and kill the Nature's bountiful Life.
Flowers are there to provide honey to bees and butterflies
Man, don't pluck them and starve our tiny friends.
Beach sands are there to keep the seas in place
Man, don't take away the sands and cause tsunamis
Man, stay put and let the Nature Be.
(Hyderabad) (26August '09)
