Yesterday’s blasts were a familiar reminder of the tears and horror that Mumbai is systematically put through almost as a sad reminder every 2/ 3 years! We call the city, ‘Ma’ (mother) and ‘Devi’ (Goddess) and yet we allow terror to rape her heartlessly and brutally repeatedly again and again and again!!!!
And sure the ‘ SPIRIT’ of Mumbai will return. people will go back to work, because we still have to earn. Schools will re-open cos children still have to learn and politicians will express outrage because they STILL have to be voted in to power! For how long????!!! Why must we continually hide behind the shield of the ‘ SPIRIT OF MUMBAI?’ How long must we abuse this spirit, must we debase and defile this spirit before WE AS A CITY FINALLY FEEL WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEMAND ANSWERS!!!!!
SOMEONE MUST TAKE THE BLAME!
No other city continuously allows herself to be ravaged over and over again without someone at the top taking charge, taking a stance and making a difference!
1300 registered rape cases in Maharashtra in the last 3 months, 1 broad daylight killing and 3 BOMB BLASTS- what more do we need to show up the ineffectuality of the current government and police system!!!???
THERE IS NO POINT OF CANDLELIGHT MARCHES and VIGILS. Those that have left us- our prayers and outrage cannot help them now.
What we can do is demand justice, demand a change and instead of allowing terrorists to celebrate Ajmal Kasab’s birthday yesterday with bomb blasts- finally lets give the 26/11 victims justice and LET’S DEMAND JUSTICE and ACTION for those lives so brutally shattered on 13/7/2011.
This morning as the rain pours , it’s like the heaven’s themselves are weeping over the innocence lost in a city last night… Let’s wipe our tears and kill corruption and terror with one blow. This is the only time ‘killing’ is justified!
