Some mindless people have entered the city. This used to be the title headlines some 10 to 20 years back when elders would meet for a quick discussion over morning walk. This was at the time when a city that slept well suddenly shook up to the news of bomb blasts during the morning news. These creatures then lived on in the same city. Ate our food, spoke our language, mingled with us all but all thru the morning. As dawn neared its glory of shade, these creatures went to another world. Discussing how to kill the elderly man who may have talked to him in the day, harm the same child who may have called him Uncle, torture the same women who may have asked for some help calling him bhaiyya.
We woke up to another one today. This time it was in Benares or so called Banaras as I call it. So many got injured & that too critically but the very first victim who didn't even know why would have that happened. A Child who would have never thought that this is what her gift going to be by the merciless human race. A human race that is fighting either for a region or a religion or some bull shit (Sorry but can't help it). I literally have started hating these two terms completely & not sure if I would ever be able to come to these two terms in my life hereafter. Did I ask my parents to make me Hindu or was it ever that the goons who killed this child ever knew that they would be born as what their parents were. What fight is it for? Do you want me to change my religion? Come & tell me, I would be more than willing to do it provided you are convinced that you won't do this again & that you will stop this nonsense right away, that you will also fight all those friends of yours who are up in arms with you for some farsical reason & cause. what are you doing it for? Be it of any religion, only those headless bodies would know what they want & why?
I don't know whom am I writing this for? They are not going to read it, I know, for they know a different language than what I know. I am sure they would feel honoured moment I write more than this, for they think, this is what their glory is in. They are so glorified today by killing a Child who didn't even know how to defend herself. Won't say go on but must say, the more you do it, more united you find India, Stronger than ever.
