This is what I feel..I Think...

Hey I am extremely sorry for not being active (as Vidooshak and many of you complained) on my blog space for a while. Magar kya karein ye Naukari cheez hi aisi hai ki achhe achhe nikammo se kaam karwa leti hai, phir hum kis khet ki Mooli hain.
It's good to see Mumbai and life finally back to normal (or so they say), its better to see the anger in common public, it was best to see Politicians giving some stupid bayaans and getting caught on camera. Though we all know how they really are but its great to see the real faces of these vultures which are otherwise hidden behind those ever smiling masks.
As far as our foreign policy and diplomacy is concerned, I think its high time now. We have to act fast and fight terror by evoking terror in the minds of those who think they can easily plan and terrorize us.
This reminds me of the poem- शक्ति और क्षमा (Abilities and Mercy) one of my most favorite Poet रामधारी सिंह दिनकर' -(this poem is an excerpt from his Mahakavya - कुरुक्षेत्र).
श्री कृष्ण who went as a Shaanti Doot is insulted in Kuru Sabha, he is back and trying to make Yudhisthir understand that his Humbleness could be percieved as a cowardice by his opponents if he doesn't display his real abilities and bravery on time, I think this poem suits the condition India is in today, we need to understand-

"Tolerance, forgiveness and clemency
Are respcted by the world
Only when the glow of strength
From behind it is unfurled."

(Providing English Translation which I found online for the Hindi Text)

क्षमा, दया, तप, त्याग, मनोबल
सबका लिया सहारा
पर नर व्याघ सुयोधन तुमसे
कहो कहाँ कब हारा?
Mercy, resolve, tact, tolerance
You've tried everything and some
But o my king of men
When did Suyodhan succumb?

क्षमाशील हो ॠपु-सक्षम
तुम हुये विनीत जितना ही
दुष्ट कौरवों ने तुमको
कायर समझा उतना ही
The more forgiving you were
In your humane compassion
The more these rouge Kauravas
Pegged you as cowardly ashen

अत्याचार सहन करने का
कुफल यही होता है
पौरुष का आतंक मनुज
कोमल होकर खोता है
This is the consequence
Of tolerating atrocities
The awe of machismo is lost
When one's gentle n kindly

क्षमा शोभती उस भुजंग को
जिसके पास गरल है
उसका क्या जो दंतहीन
विषरहित विनीत सरल है
Forgiveness is becoming of
The serpent that's got venom
None cares for the toothless,
Poisonless, kind, gentle one

सच पूछो तो शर में ही
बसती है दीप्ति विनय की
संधिवचन सम्पूज्य उसीका
जिसमे शक्ति विजय की
Truth be told, it's in the quiver
That lies the gleam of modesty
Only his peace-talk is reputable
Who is capable of victory

सहनशीलता, क्षमा, दया को
तभी पूजता जग है
बल का दर्प चमकता उसके
पीछे जब जगमग है

Tolerance, forgiveness and clemency
Are respcted by the world
Only when the glow of strength
From behind it is unfurled

Sometimes war is neccessary to bring in peace....Such wars are called Dharmyuddha in our historical myths, and it's time for another Dharmyuddha.
Are we ready to fight or we have become so timid that we'll keep hiding in the same shell and witness many more such events is the question that's still giving me sleepless nights.
I am still finding myself unable to accept what happened in those 60 Hours. Saw some Pakistani Media Videos and I am unable to keep my cool after listening to the explosive language they used against India while we were struggling to fight those coward terrorists trained in Pak.
They are laughing at us and our toothless tigers are playing blame games sitting in Delhi.
We are lighting candles while they are training thousands others to repeat the 26/11 incident.
Till when are we going to boost candle sales and blame the politicians?? It's the time to display our courage!!!

PS. I am sorry for sounding so prejudiced, biased or paranoid but I strongly feel we all should feel the same.
Thanks to everybody who commented on my last post. My brother is safe and so are all of us till those bastards are back. Are we waiting???Are we ready???
