Reflections on Reality!


Yesterday night I dont know why I was weeping like a baby on my way back home. I just couldnt control. It was a sudden surge of emotions for someone I lost when I was 8! And then the news of attack on Mumbaikers. I was wondering If couldnt till date let go of someone I lost almost 2 decades back how is Mumbai dealing the dangling of their and their loved ones lives!

Every year something comes up and they lose their lives. But still the city rebuilds and goes about life as though nothing has gone wrong. Earlier it meant nothing but today as i see those blood smeared station in the internet I shiver. I had stood there as innocent as those who died yesterday waiting to reach some destination and never knowing they would be quickly taken to the ultimate one.

I found myself ringing up numbers I thought I never would try. My heart skipping its beat before they answer. Im relieved all of them are safe, but my heart goes out to those who have lost their dear ones! I know how the bruise stays for many years. It was highly untimely of my previous post I guess. I was just trying a positive flavour to re-channel energy into upliftment and here comes..the hardest blow!

I hope the toll doesnt go up anymore and the situation is brought under control.
