A Requiem to Nature's Fury
by G Swaminathan Bookmark and Share
 

According to the Indian mythology, the Kaliyug is a period where only bad elements thrive and the good ones suffer. It is said that the final stage of this anarchical world will end with ‘Pralayam’ (the deluge) to obliterate the bad as well as the benign.

But the recent unimaginable disaster that had struck a country like Japan clearly shows that there are no such things called that good will prevail over bad. Of all the countries in the world Japan is the one which has developed from the scratches after the Second World War through its diligence and dedication. They proved to be one of the few countries which believe in hard work, sincerity and intelligence. But the Mother Nature has chosen to punish them severely with a catastrophe for reasons best known.

One disaster is acceptable; two are surely hideous. Three in succession is nothing but terrible. Japan’s holocaust will go in the history of the world for the unparalleled misery it suffers today. The stoic and disciplined manner the government functions and the public reactions with extraordinary tolerance and commitment put the most unruly and unscrupulous countries like India to shame.

There is no doubt that Japan will emerge like a phoenix once again from the ashes. But this devastation proves one thing very clear. There is nothing called ‘justice’ in this world. The intellectuals and philosophers only try to fool, silence and satisfy the gullible with explanations after such destructions.

I cannot but admire at the calm and composure the Japanese population show amidst these calamities. Now I cannot say ‘God Save Them’; because, it is God who had betrayed them notwithstanding their commendable qualities.

Very well said.

Esp. these lines:

"But the recent unimaginable disaster that had struck a country like Japan clearly shows that there are no such things called that good will prevail over bad. Of all the countries in the world Japan is the one which has developed from the scratches after the Second World War through its diligence and dedication. They proved to be one of the few countries which believe in hard work, sincerity and intelligence. There is no doubt that Japan will emerge like a phoenix once again from the ashes.

I cannot but admire at the calm and composure the Japanese population show amidst these calamities. Now I cannot say ‘God Save Them’; because, it is God who had betrayed them notwithstanding their commendable qualities."

Reminds me of one of my poems I wrote quite sometime back.
