Seen her the little girl as a glimpse...

Seen her
The little girl
Not yet adult...
In the crowd
Of the poor souls...
Endangered by the horrific
Rush
Of avalanche and slush
Taking away every thing on its way...
Houses...telegraph posts...
Cardboard box like hotels too
Which housed so many living fine
Even a few moments ago...

Seen her
A little girl
Like a glimmer of Hope
And Faith too...
Not yet adult
But adult the same...
Otherwise
She would not have torn her dupatta to tie
A bandage on an old man's badly bleeding thigh...
Otherwise...
She would not have jumped and risked
Her life
To catch hold of another almost dying...

Perhaps
She was too young
At her heart and mind
And body agile...
Otherwise...
She would not have risked herself that way...
When Nature showed Her horrendous sway
Over everything ...
Barring...
That Love...
And Faith...

(As an appreciation to the works and hardships taken upfront by a little teenaged girl... Nandita Gupta, a student of class x+2, from Indore, who was at Gaurikund at the time of the catastrophe, saving people, by helping them within her limited resources... )
