Q/A

Q:
Citizen- who? me?
NO NO NO
a 'comman man' merely...
A dispensible commodity
reduced to shouting anguishly

India replies:
Anguish tears my heart too
the unfathomable helplessness crying 'what can I do'?
but hope is not lost yet
even in the gore of death...
We ARE resilient, we WILL come through!

Q:
It's all very well to say
that a new day
is not far behind,
But when will WE
understand our own kind?

A:
When YOU talk to yourself face to face
When YOU don't get caught in the mad race
When YOU break your facade
and YOUR entire being is lighted up with solace.

Happiness THEN will not be far behind
and will benefit all mankind!!

Praying for all those who lost their lives in the Mumbai terror attacks and remembering with grateful hearts the martyers who laid down their lives to save the selfsame 'comman man' ...

Hey kiran.. nice portrayal yaar...

Mithe said...

Yes Priyanka, you are absolutely right. However, my question here is simple-why should the situation become so bad that there are wounds to show?

Amen.

When YOU talk to yourself face to face
When YOU don't get caught in the mad race
When YOU break your facade
and YOUR entire being is lighted up with solace

Beautifully put across.

And a fine way of paying tribute to all of them who suffered in Mumbai. This speaks for us too.
God Rest their Souls in Peace.
