V is for Vultures

Vultures: Birds of prey that they say had once disappeared from the Towers of Silence in which the Parsees leave the bodies of their dead. They had all flown towards the newly drawn borders, as India was partitioned, where apparently they had become choosy, gorging on select pieces of the human anatomy.

  1. Events can get buried into the darkness of history I think some events during partition of India are lost to time and many people suffered. Man's inhumanity to man… Why are humans so creative and so destructive
