Unthought Of Calamities - Poem by Bashyam Narayanan

Most saddening was
The news of a young enthusiastic boy
Studying a professional course
Meeting with a road accident
And succumbing to the injury thereto

God is kind they say
Is He really
This question comes to mind
As the boy died
Not because of his fault or rash driving
He was an innocent pillion rider
Which he became as some one
With a bike offered him a lift
Again, the bike rider too was not at fault

Do you call it fate or ill luck
If the cause and effect theory holds good
What was the cause for this fatal effect
What wrong did the boy
Or his parents do to end up with this irreparable loss

It is no less harsh than a tsunami for this
Well-knit small cute family

And do any of us have words
To console them
And even if you choose to talk to them on this
What will you be able to tell

One lesson is written on the wall
What is there in store for you
And what shock is awaiting you
No one knows

Let us keep seeking the divine’s grace
For adequate emotional support
Which will harden us
To face such
Unthought of calamities
