16 Miles Away – Shriya Datha

16 miles away stands a soldier, giving his last breathe on the battle field, leaving his tribe to suffer with the rest.

16 miles away stands a boy with tears flowing down his cheeks, as he watches his sister being burnt into ashes after facing a severe case of maltreatment.

16 miles away stands a girl at the edge of a rooftop looking at the people below for the last time before leaving the world behind, after being bullied at the cost of her life.

16 miles away stands a group of men firing away at the school premises injuring the lords’ angels.

16 miles away stands mankind,who no more cares about heart and soul. It’s all about pay checks, dynamism and luxury.

16 miles away I live in a society where mankind is divided along racial lines, or based on a stereotypic culture.
