reflections by a river

peren, nagaland, 2008

"rivers have a right to be free. they have a right not to be violated, converted into a sewage or garbage dump. rivers, rivulets and streams are eco-systems supporting complex life forms. river ain't no commodity, it is part of life-support system of the universe. a river's destruction is an act of self-mutilation. well that is too anthropo-centric. so let me reflect again... destruction of rivers or degrading it, is an act of genocide against complex life-forms and its support systems. profits and accumulation cannot trump over life."
