Collapse

By Somali K Chakrabarti Image Source On a pitch dark night From far, a mechanic spots Speeding buses, disappearing lights. The raging river washes away Chunks of an old river bridge On the highway; He raises an alarm- Next day, the accident, lost lives become a part of the news print. A freak  incident  – Or may be an audit lapse; A failure to foretell the imminent collapse of a decrepit bridge in heavy rains! Individual valour saved many a lives where a part of the system took a nosedive!     © Somali K Chakrabarti

Factors to consider while buying a term insurance plan

You don’t buy life insurance because you are going to die, but because those you love are going to live. ~ Unknown author.   A Term Plan is the purest form of life insurance that provides financial protection to your family members. It will help your family meet their financial needs arising due to household expenses and repayment of loans in your absence. When you consider buying a term plan, you need to be fully aware about the benefits provided by a term insurance plan and the required sum assured. The life cover you choose, when deciding on the term insurance plan, should help your family to maintain their current lifestyle, and take care of all your liabilities like repayment of home loan, EMIs, credit card bills etc., while keeping in mind the decrease in value of money due to  inflation.

Set Sail

By Somali K Chakrabarti Image Source A lull after storm in a turbulent sea redolent of a wily conspiracy – Stuck in a land of desolation within a cavernous space, holding their breath they wait for tempest to abate Choppy waters must come to rest – before the vessel takes off and sets the sails   © Somali K Chakrabarti, 2016

Impact of Uttarakhand Forest Fire

By Somali K Chakrabarti Image Source   A few weeks back I had written a poem on Forest Fire.  Here is a following  write up by Reshma Gandhi, elaborating upon the impact of the Forest Fire and the related environmental concerns. A fierce forest fire blazed across the state of Uttarakhand in May. Ruthless and punishing it created havoc and disaster. Several viewpoints emerge to get us thinking. Was it the aridity of the forest that prompted it? Did the combustible chir pine trees attract it? Political greed too seems to be the motive behind this relentless destruction. What triggered the Uttarakhand fire is yet unanswered.
