Urban Jungle

In this sprawling metropolis, there are jungles...natural jungles with trees and the other, which is more predominant, the urban jungle. Masses of houses, clustered against one another with no breathing space, tangles of wires, and the new ‘species’ who’s poached the rooftops, dish antennas. Yet there is order amidst this chaos, not noticeable to the ordinary eye. Life in this jungle goes on smoothly and for the residents in the urban jungle, these elements are not eye sores, rather necessities of life. Beauty is secondary, functionality is paramount. This is a view from outside the Metro Station in Chawri Bazar, near Chandni Chowk area in the old part of Delhi. Masses of small shops, thousands of people, all in a hurry, hand carts, rickshaws, vans, two wheelers & cars vie for the little road space that exisits. Yet, this is a bustling market, with millions of Rupees worth business being transacted every day. Looking up I froze...those tangles of wires....If there is a fire,....only GOD can help!
