And the sun sets – day 9

As the sun sets on the first full week of the year

I reflect on it

Work wise – a very tiring week. I am exhausted, tired …

But world events r playing on my mind. It seems wrong to say something light hearted at such a time.

I feel horrible about the world we are leaving to our children. A world full of fear.

A world where it seems common place to kill to prove the supremacy of your faith.

A world where some will be maligned for their faith coz someone else acted like an idiot.

Or maybe this is the turning point where we as humans will stand by each other and say I will ride with you. Or stand up and say my religion doesn’t preach killing. Maybe we will stand up and say my religion tells me to accept that people have different faiths and that’s ok.

Maybe we will learn to just respect another life.

One day maybe the sky won’t look so ominous and there will be rainbows…we owe it to our innocent children .

Let’ keep our fingers crossed. Tomorrow Mumbai is on high alert for terror.

What have we come to? Day 8

It’s scary right…

That you could be sitting in a cafe

That you could be at work

That your child could be at school

That you could be sitting at a restaurant or shopping or awaiting a train

And someone can just walk around

… And start shooting

We always knew death was inevitable. But early death now does not seems like a one in a million scenario.

My mind runs through the various places my family and dear ones are at – schools, hospitals, offices, malls. I mentally try to convince myself why these are places that won’t be attacked. I wonder how to react or behave if I am caught in this scenario,

I give up – I don’t have an answer.
