A beautiful poem by Sri Sudha K – gave me chills, it struck such a chord in me.

I was a river – once flowing freely,
Was a part of the nature lovely…
Through the mountains n plains…

Making them fertile, n set for cities built…
Absorbed all the dumps n drains…
But, I have now become waters still…

All my takings made you sick,
To the nature rules you never stick,
Bound me inside the dams n slains…
But, I have now become waters still…

Respect me and let me follow the trial…
I’m filling myself with rains…
But, I have now become waters still…
