Just a piece of paper!



Passing by
A meeting of different ‘papers’…..

Asserting importance,
Heard one say with authority
“I am the most valuable one, I am Rs. Ten thousand”
Second said loudly
“I am the most revered, holy words are printed on me and….”
Third said interrupting,
“I am most needed, I clean. Think what will happen without me!”
Paper of account ledger said
“Don’t you see I am very important? That is why kept so well”
Paper of school textbook was polite
“I just teach and so respected”
And another said charmingly “I beautify walls”
……………………………………..
…………………………………….
I found myself smiling
“How easily they forget they are just a piece of paper


Next day
In a heated debate at workplace
I saw paper, I was making notes on,
……smiling!
Heard telling me
"How easily you forget you are just a human?
why get so heated and take sides?"
