Stones make a house in the desert
Against sun , the cold and the rain,
Marauding tribes on angry horses.
Stones are not house against time,
Against night when time will leave
A village a heap of stones ,a rubble.
(Kuldhara is a ghost village near Jaisalmer abandoned overnight, in 19th century, by its residents to escape the tyranny of a ruling Minister who threatened to take the Chief’s daughter by force)
