**********************

Stone statue: Statues of great humans,
who no longer,
live on this earth, in physical forms;
and idols of gods and goddesses,
engraved in the stones,
with tremendous skill of great sculptors
and these stone works, immortal and superior forms,
are adored, worshipped, with rites,
sacred clothes, thrones,
lighted lamps, crowns,
incense sticks and garlands;
Certainly, humans are great and kind.


Stone wall: Walls, houses, roads, bridges,
buildings, towers and religious sites,
made from stones,
herald allure and greatness,
assure security, importance,
luxury comfort and convenience;
Humans with their skill
and wisdom are, certainly, great and humble.

Big stone on
the river bank: Stones, scattered on,
the sides of a river, exposed to
temperature fluctuations,
harsh beatings of washer men and women,
while cleaning their clothes;
remain calm and mute
with tolerance, patience
and kindness at any cost, to teach them, the same ideals;
But humans, with their selfish motives
and arrogance are wicked causing a chaotic mess.

(Remembering, a somewhat similar story, heard, long time ago.)
