Its Been One Year....

It's been a year since the greatest terror attack on India and we are still reeling! Untold horror stories are still surfacing.CCTV recordings are showing the attacks on TV. A few scruffy men with guns in their hands chacing and killing innocents, breaking open doors...What kind of people are these who hope to attain heaven by perpetrating such acts of violence?? People might try to make us believe anything, but why should one find sense in such an unreasonable arguement? All religions are born out of a sense to love for the human race, out of a desire to make the human life better and fulfilling. When death comes, religions say that one must be prepared for it by living a pious life...no God and no prophet can ever ask their followers to destroy that which he himself has created...life! Yet, God,s name is used to perpetrate such ungodly tasks, and these young disgruntled men are believing that they will attain heaven by these tasks. As we helplessly wring our hands more lives are being lost due to these acts of senseless violence. Leaders of all faiths must come together and form a secular ideology and world view so that the youth is properly channelised. Crubing terror does not merely mean beefing up security and supressing them by force...it also means creation of a system of justice and re-establishing the idea of tolerance and brotherhood so that this path becomes the only one that leads to God...It is also a psychological war we are in against the forces of hatred intolerance and violence. I pray for peace today and hope that there will be an end to terror soon!

Life goes on..... these words have true meaning. Many people lost their near and dear ones, and no one can share their loss. And the whole country is doing lip service even after a year, JUST LIP SERVICE. Don't we know what happened, and still happening with Major Unnikrishnan's family. BHIR BHI MERA BHARAT MAHAN.

I was made sick by the antics of our politicians. LK Advani for raising the topic of compensation and Pranab Mukherji for reacting in a crazy manner! You will notice that no mention of the compensation fiasco will be made henceforward. That shows up the opportunism of media too. Along with recounting their harrowing experience each and every victim also pointed out that the compenstion promised to them was not paid. The governement should have immediately come forward to examine these claims and publicly announced the compensation promised will be given and acted upon it post haste. Instead there was talk of people trying to gain political mileage out of this etc etc. The govt must be transparent in its dealings, Pranab should have calmly said that this matter would be looked into with urgency, and then translated it into action then the political mileage could not have been taken. Politics is surely a dirty game!

Thanks for the encouragement friends! I write this blog as much for myself as for you. It is a record of my very mundane life and all our travels. I hope someday my children will read it and find out little details about their growing up years. There are a few lurkers too, a cousin, a nephew, sometimes a cousin BIL, whom I write for. This is a space where I can rant as much as I want and feel great at the end of it...
