THE BEGINNING OF AN END...??

What a nightmare this has been for all of us since the past 60 hours.....I’m unable to find words because my brain is clogged with various hues of emotions---anger, fear, shame, frustration, sorrow and an unwavering urge to fight back..
Is there no security to our lives...? Are we living in anarchy where we are supposed to anticipate masked men carrying AK-47's all round the city ready to blow the brains out of people's heads at random just because they feel like it....!!?
The iconic and beautiful landmarks of our beloved city has been stained with the gruesome smear of hatred.....the stunning structure built by our patriots...ABLAZE...!!
We will not turn this into anarchy and we solely are to blame for this and not anyone else...
What have we come to....?? MUMBAI...!! Seeing a hostage crisis.....??
We have seen television news channels hurl haphazard figures at us-killed, injured…..and every time we have these fanatic organizations take accountability of their glorious deeds…!!
And what does Mumbai do after all this….???? Get back to work….show the Mumbai spirit….(honestly I feel like throwing up every time I hear this line)….Oh! get real people...we don’t get back to work just because we are resilient…..just because we are courageous……its only because we have to earn our livelihood…..or else we would lose the rat race…..
Our politicians are just a bunch of good for nothing, greedy pigs…..who would go to worlds end when it comes to contesting elections…..but would prove quite powerless when it comes to important matters like this…..
We require politicians who have the guts to stand up to all these atrocities….not just to warm the chairs……we do not need these politicians to fill up the vacancies in parliaments……ministers are appointed not so that they can be ornamented by all of us….
With a lot of respect to the elderly, I think it’s high time we stop electing ministers who are aged…..the speech and promises given by every prime minister is extremely humdrum…….
Do we see these politicians coming forward to clear up this mess…? An INDIAN OBAMA maybe…..but the politicians contesting elections these days….NEVER….!!
Is there anyone who could take charge of these issues…? The army…?
Yes maybe….as they are the only ones worth respecting now….
All those people who suffered for a cause…..to save their precious MUMBAI….!!..... Who never would have had to give up their lives in the first place..!!
I sincerely request the home minister to resign if he has even a little bit of shame left in him……I am ashamed to have a minister like you…….
WE ARE ANGRY……AND WE AWAIT ACTION…..!! lets take this unfortunate incident in a positive manner…..and vow that WE WILL FIGHT FOR JUSTICE…..!!
BECAUSE WE WILL NOT TAKE THIS ANYMORE…!!

Jai hind..!!

You've hit the pot....

Its high time now, and the YOUTHS have to come up, not just think, but its time to ACT now.

Varun said...

you did what i wanted to do for a few days....but couldn't do coz of exams...u published d feelings of a young, patriotic INDIAN..THANKS A LOT FOR THAT!!!!
what must be added ro this is that, we can't just warm the chairs n the CPU by siphoning our feelings into the net....
we, as the youth, have to take up d issue forward by attending elections n 'selecting' our leaders...We can look into potical issues in the news papers for a start.-chk out 'wwww.voteindia.org'

Another thing that came to my mind, which unfortunately didn't come to anybody else's (ppl who spoke on d tv), is that, we as citizens, must take up our own security seriously. Had at least 5 ppl @ CST died successfully trying to overpower the terrorists, the death toll would have been imensely less.....
It wud hav happened had we undergone military training for at least 2 yrs...Yes every citizen must undergo such trainings for the good of the nation.
Only then ppl wud hav understood that you can't run faster than AK 47 bullets in an open space as the CST stn....u can save urself by hiding behind a strong shield such as a pillar or a train...the other way to fight it, is by fighting the beholder. It wouldnt have taken a lot of strength to overpower a 5 ft 5 in man from behind with the help of couple of others. Such common sense, or sense-during-crisis, as u may call, doesn't come to a common man. It has to be taught to him.
This seems a bit far fetched, as Government has to provide such trainings to all of us. But what we can surely do is, stretch our limits of handling extream situations, become faster n stronger, subject ourselves to body pain in such a way that it increses our stamina, streangth, agility and hence 'SELF CONFIDENCE' which can be rightly used in such situations.

P.S. : Chk da first line in my orkut profile.
U made me write my feelings out, thanks again.

True...we do want a war on terror...we sure would want 100 other things that are wrong to be made right. We do want to help the nation and humanity in whatever way we can. We want media to behave sensibly.We want our police force to be equipped with basic amunities like bullet guards with our tax money instead of it going in political campaigns.We want that polititians stop making a game out of this...yes,peace is a big word....and one day hopefully we'll get those things...in the right place...Nice blog
