CIVILIZATION-


'Yummy! So many varieties of fruits! Oh!Those sapotas and custard-apples,I just love them! I wish I could have them;how can I? They own them and want money in return. I wish nobody was the owner here; I wish everybody could pluck them...like our ancestors did while in forests?  Probably, but they too fought with those stones  and sticks but still...it was nobodies property. The greed and insecurity grew more and more as time passed and they started  owning the God's land. We call it becoming intelligent and  civilized. I wish greed and insecurity were replaced by  consideration  very  early and  everybody would live happily sharing the God's treasure equally.' The poor lad in rags always felt so, when he saw those trees.


P.S: The photo prompt(fire) reminded about pre-historic man 

and so it is about civilization

  1. I felt for the poor lad wanting that fruit. Good show of his emotions in a short word count. Yes, greed and insecurity are here to stay, unfortunately. Luckily there is still generosity and love if you look hard enough.

  2. Dear Anu, Good story and wish it would be true! Unfortunately, some people are extremely lazy and blame all their misfortunes on someone else and then nothing gets done. Good job and well written! Nan :)
