(A Sindhi word meaning ‘mound of the dead)

Feroz Mehdi, 21 March 2006

Another world is possible.

On the mound of the dead

I frantically dig out the city

which lay peacefully

under the quiet banks of the Indus.

I scooped out their bedrooms,

their streets and private baths

with claws of curiosity, lust.

The city lay naked in front of me;

Vulnerable, fragile, helpless;

Proud, majestic, silent.

That was a world

built on the mound of its dead.

I walk away from the five thousand years old immaculately

constructed streets

with fear of getting buried under its weight,

dreaming of a different world.
