Ligo Haibun Challenge ~ Thoughts !

Prompt ~ Treasure   OR   Despair  (your choice)

I have always believed that thoughts travel in obscure ways.

I recently finished reading ‘The Lost Throne’ by Chris Kuzneski. As the characters look for Heinrich Schliemann’s treasure hidden in a cave on Mount Athos, the media broke the news about the Archeological Survey of India starting to dig for 1000 tons of gold revealed to a Hindu god-man Swami Sobhan Sarkar in a dream by Raja Rao Ram Bux Singh who was hanged in 1858.

Elections are just around the corner for many state assemblies and the parliament of India. The ruling alliance has lost the faith of common people and the opposition does not have convincing agenda to solve the many issues that riddle the country.

The government in power is busy legislating doles (at tax payers cost) that many doubt shall reach the intended beneficiaries.  

Despair is overwhelmingly widespread as is the need for a windfall.

Amazingly Ligo chose ‘treasure’ and ‘despair’ for this week’s prompt.

Treasures won harshly

lost despite application

cause desperation

  2. I really like the way you knitted it all together – with what was on your mind after reading ‘The Lost Throne’, also the things happening politically in the country at the moment, everytthing. Very original and current interpretation.

I love arguments
