Is Life worth living after all?

Hope

It rained heavily all night.

I could hear the pitter patter at the dead of the night when I woke up.

I didn't think I was going to live another day in fateful helpless exasperation.

Yet, as I looked on,

I saw the naked children on the footpath huddling in a tent, their laughter and shrieks piercing the dark silence.

I heard a beggar humming an old hindi song across the streets, a taxi driver speaking to his lover in the shades of the brooding 'sishu' tree.

And I felt hope.

A hope that transcended the realms of life and death.

A hope that made Death bow in utter humility before the cascade of Life.
