I was watching a film on my DVD when I got a call from my brother who is in Mumbai.
"..I am perfectly alright, Please don't worry..don't panic...I am leaving for Colaba.." He said in the same hurry that he always is in when he is going to cover a news. (He works with a NEWS Channel)
I was shocked...asked him why is he telling me this.
"Check the News Channels...I am really in a hurry....will talk later"
I was shocked to see the News Alerts everywhere - BOMB BLASTS & FIRING IN MUMBAI!!!
How can this be possible. I mean..I was there last evening, just came back...everything was alright..in fact I stayed in South Mumbai at my best buddy's place.. we spoke about the beauty this part of the city has... its hardly 24 hours...and here we are..looking at one of the most ugliest visuals...
Bullets, Bombs, Grenades...Blood...Injuries...PANIC!!!
It's shamefully disgusting. I don't think I wanna give/gift this world to the coming generation. Full of hatred and madness.
Brother is there covering the news like many others who are there so that people like us can sit back safe at home, see the current news...write blogs...discuss things...blame people...and then again switch the TV on for more breaking news...I am proud of you BHAI!!!and I am really proud of the youngsters who came out of the comfort of their houses and helped the injured to get hospitalized...I am proud of our Police Force who are fighting these cowards...
I wasn't able to sleep...or think...normally in such conditions I try to find solace in the poem -
WHERE THE MIND IS WITHOUT FEAR
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the
dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
-- Rabindranath Tagore
...but last night even that proved to be a futile attempt....I was sleepless...How can we sleep????How???
Am I overreacting???
People are still there... there can be no negotiations with those Crazy Bastards as they don't even have any demands or agenda... to have a demand or agenda needs a sane mind... their poisoned minds and insane motives prove they don't have sound minds...How will we negotiate with these people who themselves don't know what exactly are they fighting for???
It's so shitty that it's scary...
Saluting the Martyrs of Mumbai- Brave Policemen, Officers, Civilians...
Saluting the Spirit of Mumbai... Show the cowards, what we are made of....
Flush'em OUT!!! No Negotiations...
PS. Where is Mr.Raj Thakre & his MNS????
