Poem – Humanity, where disappeared thee?

ಎಷ್ಟು ಖಿನ್ನತೆ, ಇತರರ ಅಭಿಪ್ರಾಯಗಳ ಮೇಲೆ ಜೀವಿಸುವುದು ಇಂದಿನ ಸಮಾಜದ, ಅಂಗೀಕಾರದ ಸೃಜನಶೀಲತೆ ಇತರರ ಮೌಲ್ಯಮಾಪನ, ನಮ್ಮ ಬಾಲ್ಯದ ಸಂತೋಷಗಳು ಕಣ್ಮರೆಯಾಗಿವೆ ವಯಸ್ಸು ಮತ್ತು ಶಿಕ್ಷಣದೊಂದಿಗೆ, ಬುದ್ಧಿವಂತರಾಗಿದ್ದೇವೆಂದು ನಂಬುತ್ತೇವೆ ಆದರೆ, ನಾವು ವಾಸ್ತವದಲ್ಲಿ ಏನಾಗಿದ್ದೇವೆ? ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಯೋಚಿಸಿ ತಂತ್ರಜ್ಞಾನ ಸ್ವೀಕರಿಸಲು, ಇಂದು ಮನುಷ್ಯನು ಮಾನವೀಯತೆಯನ್ನು ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದಾನೆ ಇದು ದುರದೃಷ್ಟಕರವಲ್ಲದಿದ್ದರೆ, ಇದು ಏನು ನನಗೆ ತಿಳಿದಿಲ್ಲ? ಬ ನ್ನಿನಾವು, ನಮ್ಮ ಜೀವನದ ಆತ್ಮಾವಲೋಕನ ಮಾಡೋಣ ಪೂರ್ವಜರ ಜೀವನ ವಿಧಾನಗಳಿಗೆ ಕಡೆಗೆ ತಿರುಗೋಣ ಅದು ಅವರಿಗೆ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡಿದೆ, ಅದು […]
