a woman...a being...and everything in between
Your haiku always carry such deep messages ... lovely !!!
It what I see that I write...Thanks Amrit for seeing through mere words.
You have touched upon a deep truth here-there can be no greed where even the basic necessities have not been met.
Agree Mam,We as a society are so much divided that some people can keep on feeding to their greed, whereas some people cannot even cater to the basic needs.Sad but true!
Beautiful words. Little girls shouldn't have to beg. Feel sad. What you see on her face is certainly not greed.
Though this photo I have taken from google, but this face is everywhere mocking at people who worry more about which up-market restaurant to choose for their dinner.Thanks For visiting!
your image selection is superb it aptly signifies theme. nice haiku
Thank you so much, more than my writings I feel great when someone praises my image selection. Weired I am.
Loved the 2nd one!
That's an Indian Idiom our grandma's used to tell us so many times.Thank you so much!
Every haiku of yours holds such significance, a wealth of meaning carried in such few words. They force us to give pause and ponder before moving away.Incredible!
Thanks Meenakshi,Every writing needs readers who read, analyse, criticise and assimilate. Only then the writing is complete. Your comments make my haiku worth the efforts.
As always, very deep thoughts :)
Hats off! These lines have a tremendous power to move.
Thank you so much for your kind words!
so sad but true..very touching haiku
Thanks a lot for reading!
It takes discernment--does it not?--to recognise the difference between greed and what appears to be greed.Greedy Warriors
Sometimes the line is thin and blurred, you never know when greed takes over need.Thanks a lot!
Great Haiku Meenakshi.The girl's expression is very beautifully captured.It is poverty which, leads to greediness.
Thanks for reading and appreciating.
Beautiful offerings Meenakshi! It has been said there're lots of unfairness in this world. Unfortunately it's compounded by acts of greediness that make the situation more serious. Your wise words captured this very well! Nicely!Hank
Thank Hank, I am glad my words could convey that disparity.
The hunger of needis never quite match forThe hunger of greedJzB
