    'BARBED BORDER MY FOOT'- RIVER RAVI

    Prof Mohan Singh once wrote'
    " Who can measure the freedom
    Of waves of ecstatic Chenab
    and the carefree winds of the East?'
    But the Govt of India did attempt to measure it.
    Because it thought when the freedom of rivers could be
    arrested in the big dams of Bhakra etc who bothers
    the currents of the tiny Ravi. But it has proved
    wrong. Ravi has uprooted many a border pillar and
    washed away the barbed fencing that separated the two
    people of India and Pakistan who were once one like
    the waters of Ravi and the winds that bother little
    the borders.
    Yesterday many newspapers of Punjab have carried the
    story how Ravi has washed away Barbed Border and the
    Pillars and the BSF pickets. But no loss to life.
    Govt of India which seldom hears the agonies of people
    rose to the occasion and has immediately sanctioned
    Rs. 1.5 crores for repairs of Border Fence.
    The amount otherwise meant meals for about 30,00000
    hungry mouths of Orissa, Andhra, Jharkhand, Bihar etc
    whose crores of people are living below poverty line.
    These newspapers have also posted photos of barbed
    wire being washed away.
    This has happened near Kartarpur territory. Should I
    take it a positive omen?
