STREAM OF THOUGHT

(Saw this heart-wetting sight this morning as I was walking to office)

A sturdy man wearing a thick turban - standing next to
A thin man wearing a sricharanam - standing next to
A white-clad man who just took off his prayer cap
Joyously urinating against the wall of my street
In unison.

It is the same blood that flows in all of us; it is the same ____ that flows out of all of us. Communal harmony is not a distant dream. Jai Hind.

eccentric observations, but a valid view. the future is much more important, and frankly, much more intense that any segregation that plagues today world :)

change will happen.

@orange fronkey: would've made for an award-winning picture! i really missed my camera at that time!

@ghost particle: so you are saying the three men were symbolically looking at the future?

Jadis said...

jesus! i was beginning to wonder whether or not your blog is commentproof.

as for the post, hilarious!!!!!
:D
even the anecdote abt the bengali asking a whitewasher 'why are you bite-bashing the balls?' loses to this.

(no offence to bongs tho, i being one myself.)

Keshi said...

the wierdest thing abt humans is that they neednt 'change' to hv peace...we r all the same already...just that we think we need CHANGE.

very well written!

Keshi.

I think public restrooms should come more in cities, thus some people do the same unless they themselves learn. No way, I feel bad urinating on road side in my long travels!

Vinesh said...

@jadis: bite-bashing the balls. sounds terrible. must hear it in that accent though.

@keshi: what a "point of unification" :D

@jeevan: true, and sometimes when there are public restrooms, they are so badly maintained they're unusable!

Vinesh said...

@anonymous (paavai): so good to see you here after such a long time, paavai :-) how've you been?

@prats: no good can come out of this! only bad smell.. :-)

@meira: i played it after finding it on your blog. couldn't get past 2 screens :"-)

Vinesh said...

@the seeker: would've handed the pic to the environmentalists actually :-)

@santasizing...fantasizing: it would certainly be the wrong place for a communal riot to break out, for sure :-)

@anonymous: ...

@anonymous: inheritance of loss, this?

Vinesh said...

@v. archana: finally, one person who didn't want a picture :-)

@sri: haha, side angle. didn't catch the tip of the iceberg though..

@karthik srinivasan: that's true for many people!

Vinesh said...

@chriz: times i wished i had a camera mobile!

@maha: "points" of unification, as i like to call it :-)

@golmaalgopal: at least for me, it was just that :-)

Vinesh said...

@karthik: aamaa.. missed the piss.

@shruti: wish it had been a good thing, though, not this! :-(

Vinesh said...

@serendipity: i only said they dont hold hands and look at each other lovingly when they're doing loo.. :-)

@nidhi: oh, i'm still on blogger old version, so have to check if i can do that. would you consider subscribing to Orange Juice? top left corner has a Subscribe/Syndicate option.
