WHYYYYY??????

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
domestic walls;
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
and action--
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????

Really proud of your chhota sa bhai daring such brave deeds in the mad bylanes of Mumbai. May God always look after him!

On a related note, don't you think terrorists have started making more glamorous attacks AFTER the 24hr news channels started? Earlier we always heard of such high-profile, filmi style wars in US, where 24hr news TV existed. India had usual riots and bomb blasts. I think the terrorists use the media to get attention, scare celebrities and achieve their goal-- that is to create fear and panic.

I only hope we don't go and make any retaliatory attacks to "avenge" this one. That will be one stupid move and we are extremely capable of it.

These guys are so young and look from well bought families... I mean even if they keep their guns and wash their face..they can come out the hotel saying they were the trapped guests in there...no one can recognize...
Its seriously a shameful act...

Kudos 2 ur brother & the others alike.
Its painful 2 c this blow on the country... yes I do feel the inability & that we can do nothing more then sitting glued 2 the TV set.

But 1 thing is 4 sure that we all can feel that pain & loss.
Lets pray for peace.

Swayam said...

i sound hollow and cliched... how much of my words are heartfelt i dont know honestly... bomb blasts seem to have become part of our daily lives... racketeering, rioting, terrorism, mob wiolene, insurgency everything are part of the daily din.. sorry to say

Rafiq Raja said...

My condolences to all the affected families in India. It's time to show that we can remain united at this hour of need.

By the way, Tf, thanks for re-visiting my blog.

I just chanced upon your blog on Myspace. Although you have said we must follow you to blogger for more masti, more mazaa I don't agree. I think you provided a lot more masala tidbits on that blog in the original Toonfactory ishtyle. You have become so silent here, man.

Koi ladki ka chakkar hai kya? Ek wahi achche bhale manush ko amanush bana sakti hai...

Toonfactory said...
