Two Men Were Lost in a Jungle

Two Men Were Lost in a Jungle

1 min 238 1 min 238

Two men were lost in a jungle.

And no one,

bothered to ask of them

in the village or home

or places elsewhere- where they had

often frequented.


They just disappeared,

with no trace.


There were no rumors

that took place

behind their backs,

like, the oldies saying,

“The Tiger must have eaten them,”

or the aunties, gossiping,

“They must have starved to death.”

or,

“Oh! Poor they, God knows in what state they would be.”


Neither the village Chanakyas,

who were extra vigilant and

sheer detectives

comment anything,

nor did their children ask

“Where were they?”


It seemed, as if,

it was a conspiracy;

which, it wasn’t, though.


Even, their wives were happy

and not bothered,

nor worried

they seemed to be

simply unaware

and relaxed.


For the days they had been missing,

there were no night-fights heard,

no abuses,

no utensils clattering,

nor, children sobbing,

or villagers coming to complain.


Things were somehow in order, and,

in peace,

and everyone’s fingers were crossed!
