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.

  1. I felt same verby, and I did not know what to do…in a word, i was like shattered!! Scared, and felt suffocated!!
    Especially, when i am so far off my family 😦 ….though I have never been in Mumbai, I have experienced the terror !!
    How is it in Mumbai now???
    Hope it does not escalate to other places 😦

  4. as ive already emphasized! its not their end actions that I have talked about earlier too..i just meant if all that grit and effort can be channelized into ‘positive upliftment’. I never mentioned i admire them for killing people!!or destructing! I just took an example of how much energy humans have and stressed in channelizing them to something positive than this destructive!

  8. I still think ur prev post made sense..Seeing that 21year old guy who had been trained to kill until he was dead..the fact is he was sent to kill n he did it. Failure was on our part ..

    Also reminds of obama’s words on 9/11 “My powers of empathy, my ability to reach into another’s heart, cannot penetrate the blank stares of those who would murder innocents with such serene satisfaction.”

  9. 😦 how cruel can a man be! how much hatred still exists among human beings! i wish they were taught about love instead. but then when things go out ne control, we need to deal it with a firm hand! I hope better sense prevails

  11. @sahaja – one doesnt need be in a place to understand the pain! Ur right!.. from here we can feel the shudder.

    @ Tarun Goel – true. Thats wat the nationa wants!

    @ Whacky – It isnt that hard to control them! Where was our protectors when they got the warning that there would be an attack via sea route? Why are our policemen still roaming around with incompetent guns?

    @kartz – thanx

    @nautankey – yeah it might make sense but I just cant agree with Obama on that! Indian force is still incompetent to witness the slightest blow! Police could do nthing with their good for nothing guns as their men were handy with grenades and rifles. Why dont we tighten security and better our forces instead of saying ‘i condemn the attack’ who the hell wants to knw whether the PM condemns or approves when lives are lost!

    @whatsinaname – thts exactly what i was thinking.

  12. well i was on train this weekend to kerala..and for security the railway police guy was carrying a me that gun was like the one which we use to shoot baloons in marina beach.By the time he loads it the whole coach wud be gone to an automatic rifle.

    I have seen some religious fanatics[hindus,moslems as well as xtians] and trust me u cant make them reason or think of anything else.They are just programmed and r not ready to listen to rational thoughts.. thats when obama’s statements makes sense.They have a 100 reasons to kill.. I mean even i have a 100 reasons to kill some people but when i think rationally n humanely i dont go ahead..and these guys dont have that thinking its seriously impossible to stop them leave alone changing them.

  13. “trust me that gun was like the one which we use to shoot baloons in marina beach” – theres my whole point! true its hard to stop people who aint rationale! But what makes our govt not rationale! Y cant they just loo around and see that almost everything related to security is outdated. Read tht article on the guy that traveled through CST yestrday with .32 revolver and who was nt asked a question?? This monday aftr all ths attack! CST metal detectors dint beep it seems! Lord knows when the logic inside those heads ruling us would beep!

  15. I have been in limbo for some time, having such bad eyestrain, that I’m posting this comment with sunglasses on. But just to say, that your post made me research the news and I felt so aghast at the extent of hate, scale and audacity in these attacks! Muslim terrorists are simply setting up the stage for increased prejudice and hostility toward all Muslims, not just from Americans and British, but from everyone around the world!

  16. @ karthik – yes we all are..

    @ Johanna – yeah the reports are scary! and its true..they are taking an otherwise interesting religion into a different level..but i guess we need to take off the religion element here..most people become terrorist from the sheer need to leap out of famine and poverty..
