Treasure Island

Manu Dash

(4 July 1956 / Odisha, India)

Photograph at CST


Being unaware
I was asked to take a snapshot
At CST. I was hardly aware that
The travellers slouched
On the neat platform,
The uniformed policemen on duty
Near the metal detectors,
The students, office-goers
And commuters
Walking briskly
Will just turn carcasses
In months' time?
Were they the same living beings
Whose photographs I had taken
On a smoky forenoon?
2
Even today,
After some years,
I possess those photographs
In my personal album
To screw my memory that
People are bundle of
Living cadavers.
