THE TORRENTIAL RAIN HIT ONE OF THE MAJOR

THE CITES IN INDIA!

CHENNAI CITY IS UNDER THE WATER FOR ALMOST TWO TO THREE DAYS!
FOLLOWING FEW LINES ARE THE THOUGHTS CAME UPON ONE OF MY FACEBOOK FRIENDS’ MIND!
THE AUTHOR WROTE THIS THOUGHT IN THE MALAYALAM LANGUAGE
AND THIS IS JUST A FREE TRANSLATION OF THAT THOUGHT INTO THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE!
JUST A FREE TRANSLATION WITH FEW LINES ADDED HERE AND THERE!
 
What A Rain Taught Us?
No Churches…
No Temples…
No palatial Buildings…
No huts…
Everything just  a building to sit back…
No High Quality One…
No Low quality One..
All just To Keep warm, Just Wrappers 
No Five Stars…
No Costly One… 
No Cheap One
All Just Hunger
Only The Same Hunger….
No Man 
No Woman…
No Poor Man… 
No Rich Man…
No High Cast…
No Low Cast… 
No Hindu
No Islam
No Christian
No You Or Me  
Only We The Humans…
Just to Keep Away From Swepting off in the Flood Stream…
A Place To Sit, On A Higher Place…
Just To Sit A Place…
A Wrapper to Just Keep Warm
An Old Cloth…
A Piece of Bread To Keep Hunger Away…
A Drop of Water To Keep Thirst Away…
This is Only They Need…
Their Great Need In Life…
They are called Human…
Just Humans…
They Only Demands, A Drop Of Water To Drink…
They Are Called Humans…
Here, The Teacher is Not Quran, Bible Nor Mahabharath
Instead Just A RAIN!!!
Yes, Just A Rain Taught Us A Great Lesson!!
Do We Really Understood The Lesson?
Is the Big Question Still Remains Before Us Humans!!!

A Facebook Note translated from the original Malayalam. 

The Note is written based on the recent calamity happened to Chennai City. 
One of the Major Metropolitan Cities in India.

 The Original Malayalam Version of this Note is given Below:

ഒരു മഴ പഠിപ്പിച്ചതെന്ത്‌?  

പള്ളികളില്ല..
അമ്പലങ്ങളില്ല…
കൊട്ടാരമില്ല…
കുടിലില്ല..
എല്ലാം കയറി ഇരിക്കാവുന്ന
വെറും കെട്ടിടങ്ങൾ…
മുന്തിയതില്ല..
തരം താഴ്‌ന്നതില്ല..
എല്ലാം തണുപ്പാറ്റാനുള്ള
വെറും തുണികൾ…
ഫൈവ്‌ സ്റ്റാറില്ല..
സ്റ്റാറില്ലാത്തതില്ല..
വില കൂടിയതില്ല…
കുറഞ്ഞതില്ല…
എല്ലാം വിശപ്പ്‌…
ഒരേ വിശപ്പ്‌…
ആണില്ല …പെണ്ണില്ല…
പാവപ്പെട്ടവനില്ല.. പണക്കാരനില്ല..
ഉന്നതനില്ല… നീചനില്ല…
ഹിന്ദുവോ.. കൃസ്റ്റ്യനോ ..
ഇസ്ലാമോ ഇല്ല…
നീയോ ഞാനോ ഇല്ല..
നമ്മളാകുന്ന മനുഷ്യർ മാത്രം..
ഒലിച്ചു പോകാതെ ഉയരത്തിൽ
കൂനിയിരിക്കാൻ ഒരിടവും
ചൂടാറ്റാനൊരു പഴന്തുണിയും
വിശപ്പകറ്റാനൊരു റൊട്ടിക്കഷ്ണവും
ഒരിറ്റു വെള്ളവും മാത്രം ആവശ്യപ്പെടുന്നവൻ
മനുഷ്യർ…
വെറും മനുഷ്യർ…
ഖുറാനോ ബൈബിളോ മഹാഭാരതമോ
അല്ല പഠിപ്പിക്കുന്നത്‌..
ഒരു മഴയാണു…
കടപ്പാടോടെ സമര്പ്പിക്കുന്നു,,,,,

MY RESPONSE TO THAT NOTE:

സത്യമാണീ ചൊന്നതെല്ലാം പക്ഷെ
മഴക്കെടുതി മാറി വരുമ്പോൾ
മർത്യർ നമ്മൾ വീണ്ടും ചെന്നു പെട്ടീടും
ആ പഴയ തലത്തിൽ തന്നെ!
പാഠം എത്ര പഠിച്ചാലും
മനസ്സിലാകില്ലോട്ടുമേ!
നന്ദി ചൊല്ലീടുന്നീയോർമ്മപ്പെടുത്തലിനു!

Hi Phil, Those were beautiful lines 🙂 Yes, Chennai has gone through such a lot and it saddens my heart to see the great loss. However, I am glad things are on a recovery curve now. Not to mention the way people have come forward to help each other in this hour of need – this shows the power of humanity, isn’t it? It sure is a great lesson to learn. Prayer and wishes are with those who are still recovering from the loss of life and other things though. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead and I… Read more »

Hi Philip

This is indeed a great lesson and thank you for doing the translation to help us to understand the thoughts of the writer. All lives matter and the one thing that we have in common for sure is the blood that flows through our viens.

I pray that people can come together at a time such as this, put all differences aside and help each other.

Be safe. God bless you.

Hey Phil,

What a great poem with a lesson attached. The rain showing us that we all just humans. For me this reiterated that we are all equal, no one better than the other. We all have the same basic needs for survival. I feel a little light hearted after reading this. Thank you.

Hi Philip

Indeed this is a great lesson and a food for thought. It is sad this would have to happen in Chinnei.

I do hope all is well now. Thanks for sharing

Hi Brother Phil,

Interesting read but I like your reply for that rather than the other thought because people will forget everything once the troubles are over.

Keep sharing

Have a great day.

[…] Chennai had been in shambles later this year following extremely frequent and heavy rains, and in acknowledgement of the suffering his city had gone through, Chennaiyin FC co-owner Abhishek Bachchan dedicated this ISL title to the people of Chennai. In both October and November, nearly half of the month was plagued by rain according to YR.NO.  Also please read this related post:  Rain Taught Us A Lesson.  […]
