Nature Will Knock


By Rishi Raj


When forest becomes fire;

When leachates ingress lakes;

Water hoses come into action

To tame the untameable calamity.


When foundation start shaking;

When ceiling start cracking;

Insurance come to shroud the flaw

To rescue one with shattered home.


When Cirque lake’s mud bank breaks;

When steep slope turns into landslide;

Condolences come pouring from all over

To the buried soul – died untimely death.


When cloud bursts happen unknowingly;

When parched soil is flown away;

Government awakes from its slumber

To douse the rebellion in making.


When, and how, and what, and where;

On and on we can go, until

We learn to maintain the delicate balance;

Nature will knock: furiously, inevitably.


About the Author:

With Harry Potter introducing him to the world of brilliant books, Rishi Raj is one of the most avid readers you will come across. He is the person who looks for the best even in the worst; and, that is perhaps the reason why the books, which will definitely put you to sleep, seem interesting to Rishi! And, his vast reading ability gives him the skill required to pen down his thoughts lucidly.


Sushmita firmly believes in her motto “Write like no one else will ever read you” and encourages the same to everyone.

Aspiring to create something brilliant and a prominent work of literature in the near future, she prioritises moulding style and emotions into words, at the same time, exalting thoughts and feelings above expressions.
