कबीर दोहा

चलती चक्की देखकर दिया कबीरा रोए
दुई पाटन के बीच में साबुत बचा न कोए

Africam …

Seeing or hearing even just to these sounds, makes me regret
how far we have come away from nature …
Man has become so obsessed with himself , that life has
become difficult for most other species on earth .
Even a common bird like a sparrow has become a rarity ,
what a pity …
