Defeat

Defeated, they feel, as I do.
Lost, overpowered, dominated, engulfed...

The buildings...they are coming closer.

I donot agree that it is defeat.The buildings are coming closer,true.Our effort should be to protect the rocks,inspite of everything.There lies our triumph.Is it not a positive thought?

The rocks we were standing on were actually in the backyard of a construction site and would soon be razed to the ground. The Save the Rocks Society recently managed to get a Govt order to protect 15 sites around Hyderabad. But five others were rejected because building activity had already started on those sites. It is very depressing...as bad as cutting down trees.
