A normal day turned bloody!!
The day after a bloody evening turns normal again.13/7 is it going to be just another date like the others???
Mumbai is shocked.Mumbai panics.Mumbai helps.Mumbai mourns.Mumbai cries.Mumbai questions.Mumbai listens to broken promises being made again.Mumbai sleeps it off.Mumbai is back to work the next day.
Everybody salutes the so called "spirit of Mumbai" !!
Its the same routine over and over again.Tragedy strikes,Innocents get hurt and die & Politicians make promises....
Nothing has changed except the form and reach of terror perpetrators.
The media makes the gimmick out of the sensitive issues.Every channel competes to get an exclusive coverage of the happenings.Even at hospitals.The camera goes every where.Hapless victim families, in this moment of crises, have to face the encroachment by the camera.
Media reports.System reacts.both use words.ONLY.No action.Just reaction.
The funny part is that the CM of Maharashtra,who promised after 26/11,that the Mumbaikar is safe and it is the government's responsibility to look after his security,have now become the then CM of Maharshtra.Thanks to a scam.
The questions remain unanswered.The first one being who is to be asked and held responsible!!
Citizens show their anger by holding candle marches,writing newspaper articles,putting up status updates,tweeting or writing blogs like this one.But it comes down to nothing.
The city gets lauded for its "spirit" and is discreetly told to move on.
The "spirit" is nothing but helplessness.People have to get back to work the next day,come what may.It isn't to show anyone that they don't get bogged down.They don't have an option of being bogged down.
Being a Mumbaikar it angers me to no end,to know that lakhs of rupees are spent on the safety of a terrorist whereas a common man has to worry about getting back home.EVERYDAY.
I am just another Mumbaikar.Lost without any direction.
I hope we all live to see a day when it isn't so difficult to trust.When we stop living in fear.
Imagine a place where all people live in peace,You may say I am dreamer but I am not the only one....
