At my Place
Hum kaale hai tho kya huva, Dilwaale hain..

This poem was nominated for the best poem of 2005 in a national contest. A very touching poem written by an African kid!!

When I born, I Black,
When I grow up, I Black,
When I go in Sun, I Black,
When I scared, I Black,
When I sick, I Black,
And when I die, I still black..

And you White fella,
When you born, you Pink,
When you grow up, you White,
When you go in Sun, you Red,
When you cold, you Blue,
When you scared, you Yellow,
When you sick, you Green,
And when you die, you Gray..
And you calling me Colored?

This only highlights the fact that what we commonly perceive as being true is actually a mirage. We need to look deeper to find the real thing.

Quote of the Day -
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
