[26/11]~ A Moment of Silence!!

26 Nov

Time alone heals, counting ticks of the clock…
A year gone by, since they entered through the dock…
They came, they surrounded, they fired…
They took away as many lives, as they desired…

I still remember the day, to the idiot box we did glue…
Of when it would end, how many would survive, we had no clue…
I sincerely hope that no such incidents will occur…
No neighbor, no terrorism, henceforth makes us suffer…

I wonder if we can re-wind the time…
To paint a different picture altogether, so sublime…
One with no pain, no terror, no nothing…
One with peace, love, growth and no uprising!!

A moment of silence, we offer to all the lives cost…
And a piece of advice to the offenders, just get lost…
To the ones who sacrificed for others, we offer our humble tributes…
Fellow citizens at Mumbai, for showing us how to move on..heartfelt salutes…


It’s been a year since the 11/26 terror attacks took place at several locations in Mumbai. The guts of the people who conspired against India are worth condemning…they were cowards who attacked and killed innocent people just for some kind of false faith they were made to believe in. No religion or faith in the world preaches voilence and hatred. The young men who came in as terror faces were no doubt brainwashed, so much that common sense failed to prevail in them…
It feels sad to see the state of our judiciary, in which we all (seem to) have immense faith…it’s been a year now and they still seem to argue over the nationality and blood group of the lone terrorist caught…that I sometimes chuckle, at the thought that they are conducting more of a matrimonial enquiry for him rather than a judicial one.
Some people do bakwaas about ‘Mumbai not belonging to India’ and all that but then those very folks were scribbling in the comforts of their homes while the aam junta were making “Saamna” of the situation at hand….anyways, kudos to the spirits of Mumbaikars who once again braved against all odds in successfully facing the idiosyncrasies that life had in offer for them.

    very moving indeed…

    —> It is really unfortunate that time cannot be re-wound.. But, I guess, all learning and awakening happens b’cos time has left an indelible mark in the minds of people and on the soils of the earth.. and every time you tread on it, the pangs of pain and suffering reverberate around, reminding us of the need for a fresh beginning, even though the past cannot be undone…

    Cheers to you for that wonderful piece of writing!

    one of the first posts i saw about 26/11 … it seems many bloggers aren’t even interested in writing about it anymore ( or maybe i’v looked in the wrong places)

    i hope we don’t just remember but also learn.
