Periphery of Sensitivity
by Kingshuk Chakraborty
Bookmark and Share
  Stay quiet, do not complain.
What are you talking about?
You must know the periphery of sensitivity
Stay within.

Your five year daughter might have been raped.
So what?  
Look at your character, madam.
Keep running from pillar to post.
Who cares, if you cry behind doors?
Life moves on...
 
A child was made to drink her urine.
Stay quiet, do not complain.
It happens sometimes...
It is normal.
The warden did her job.
She would not wet her bed again.

Do not get scared
If you find the sweeper
With knife in hand at operation theater;
It is a helping hand.

Aren’t you too sensitive about life?
What would you do in absence of trained men?
So stay quiet, don’t complain.
Do not try to raise your voice
Even if it hurts...

Price rise is normal during inflation.
You spend much more on ice-cream
It’s just few rupees...
So stay quiet, do not complain.
 
See, how we are becoming thick skinned.
The spine will soon become non-existent.
It is evolution of Indian in independent India.
We learned to stay indifferent.
There is a periphery of sensitivity,
Stay within.
