Morality Anyone ?

Party hearties abandon driver to heart attack…
Three men holding key positions in one of India’s biggest private sector companies were on their way to a party at their boss’s swanky Cuffe Parade home, when driver Goverdhan Vaidya, who is in his mid fifties, suffered a cardiac arrest.
The men asked him to stop the car, which was at Cooperage, helped him out and sat him down on the pavement.
Then, they got back in the car and drove off to the party, leaving a breathless Vaidya holding his chest in excruciating pain.
The metropolis is fast decaying
Not just with the litter around
Selfish, boorish and insensitive
Soul-less people the cities abound
Not moved by other man’s pain
Upmost in the mind is today’s gain
A dying man to himself, left on the road
Morality becomes just yet another word
No time to waste on someone who’s dying
For the next million, we got to be flying
Party we must, what if someone’s dead
After all are we not among those well read
Official party, the event is so seminal
Perfect occasion it is, for the party animal
Human life is but another commodity
Time we partied, to bemoan loss of humanity
