Too many news of death, by Ananya S Guha

Too many news of death
no news of birth
only statistics of population growth
India is overcrowded
India is dying with the living they say
Too many news of death
the population is a mere release of birth
but the death is in statistics
in the billions of birth
A story of a nation wanting to sort out births
not deaths
A millions will assault
A thousands will die everyday unreported
Too many news of death
the tears move in eyes of those born.
