Another ‘Torrential Tuesday’???

It’s been more than a decade since Mumbai was faced with the trauma of floods. Is today another 26th July, 2005?

Pouring, like it won’t stop, these rains.

A fear rises in the minds,

Let it not be another flood! Not again, not this time.

The stranded past, flashes;

The cries of the babies,

The sighs and the dread.

Again a high tide, twice in a day,

Again the merciless clouds,

Again the tearing pain.

The walking on the tracks,

The staying back at offices,

The zero communication scenario.

Not again, not this time.

Oh please, not again!
