A BEGINNING OR JUST ANOTHER END??














“oberoi trident+staff+mumbai terror attack”-> google search

I don’t know how many of you have done this.. I don’t know how many of you have looked for your loved ones, frends or family members on the net…to know about their well being.. I don’t know how many of you felt relaxed after knowing they are healthy and sound.. and I don’t know how many of you cried upon knowing that they perished at the hands of terror……

But I know that I am the one.. who typed these words the first thing on the internet every morning… I am the one who switched channels on the remote of his TV with sweating face… I am the one who was scared of seeing one known face among the victims…. I am the one who prayed every morning to not make me hear that familiar name on TV or net…. I am the one who believed that of all the people.. his frend would be healthy and happy……. I am the one… who felt the fear and not just anger like every Indian did……… I had my frend in Trident Oberoi…

I never had guts to call a number on my mobile…. My hands were shaking every time i tried that... I never had any idea of how to dial and say “abe kaisa hai??”.. I never had any idea of how to deal with the feelings that I was going thru at the moment… after all this is the first time.. I found that.. what losing someone could be like….

Those who died in mumbai?? Those ‘stupid common men’… Are they just tiny little rats?? Is life so cheap that it can be measured in terms of green paper that our b@$#@%d politicians offer to those who lost everything…… just everythin!!! nothing will happen this time yet… time will heal everything… time will erase every bit of it………. Some game of politics and for the ‘stupid common man’ these loses will be oblivion in making his ends meet… yet again…… is it just another end??

For the bloody terrorists…. They won on some fronts……… Yes... They were to kill people… they did it… they wanted to disrupt peace… they did it……. They wished to grind life in bits and pieces.. they did it... They wanted India to bleed… they made it bleed…… but for the first time they lost the battle at the end….. they failed to divide India in the name of religion..... Is it really a beginning??

‘Hey how is he? He worked in trident right??’.. that’s me… ‘he is at home. Fortunately his duty was off at 6pm and he left for home that day’…… a common frend… Well my frend at Trident is just fine….. The pain may be is over for me…..but the anger isn’t…………………………….

Life is unpredictable at times. I have come across one such similar incident, when those serial bomb blasts happened in Delhi 2 years back!
