Think Practical - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

All the years
I kept thinking
That problems
Happen naturally
Like floods occur
When it rains heavily
And solve themselves
As floods recede
When rain stops
But now I have
Changed my mind.

Looking back
When it floods
Damages occur
People suffer
Everyone must
Do all that's possible
To prevent floods
Creating drainage
Putting up barriers
And evacuating if needed.

Problems solve
A dictum followed
By politicians
It gets imbedded
In our system
And we seem to be
Dictated by it.

Knowledge gained
And experience obtained
Let us understand
The realities of life
We then discard
Old ways of thinking
And become practical
To serve society.

    Practical thinking for sure we can do much to prevent flooding in certain areas protecting our homes with soak wells etc yet there are times when it is the crying of the sky that really opens up and some damage is caused. Great write (Report) Reply
