Tears of Blood

1947. She was independent, strong, confident and made a difference. A difference the whole world marvelled at. She showed herself to be powerful yet a strong humanitarian. She followed rules that had peace at its very foundation and humanity built up on it. The people who freed her were proud of her. They walked with their heads held high. Then were born the sons. She cared for them and nurtured them well and wanted them to take up the mantle- to rule their brothers.

The sons then grew up and kicked their own mother's womb and cursed her so she gave birth to more and more sons endlessly. Those that were deformed in the brain, insane would grow up so even the deepest and darkest depths of hell would spit them out. Then She was put to sleep by her own sons and cursed to breed cruelty, insanity and wilderness throughout. Her womb became cold and filled with filth. Then came men of lust from other parts of the world who raped her while she cried out loud to her sons to save her while the sons stood beside counting their daily earnings and while their brothers of innocence stood helpless without a voice.

India stands naked infront of her own sons and their betrayal. Unable to protect herself. People appointed to guard the law are beating each other up with the aggression of a mad, raging bull with no regard to what they are guarding. People appointed to rule the country are busy swindling, laughing at its own fate while people of innocence are out there with their blood smeared all over turning the country red. Now she lays helpless and cursed to sleep and never to wake up again crying the tears of blood that flows like a crimson river while her sons still dream of the riches they can salvage and profiteer amidst the crisis with just a casual nod as a sign of sympathy.

" Sometimes I wonder... will God ever forgive us for what we've done to each other? Then I look around and I realize... God left this place a long time ago." *
* A quote from the movie Blood Diamond

Its time we took lessons from Israel and adopted measures such as hot pursuit!

Oh, but then I forgoet, we are Indians and this is India!!!!!
How can we ever become a people that will strengthen a nation! We have after all, remained slaves for centuries and will continue to be so for generations to come!

Its time every Indian felt ashamed of being one!

@Rakesh
Well, i'd just like to blame certain other higher authorities for this and everything else bad that happened.
I salut the army and all the other people involved in this brave operation. Kudos to them.

I have never seen people in such despair.We feel unsecured all the time.Is this the same India that got independence from the foreign rules through ahimsa and stood united to win wars against pakisthan three times!

Sad state of affairs...Watching the whole drama unfold on television I couldn't but experience the same feeling of helplessness and frustration that I do, every time an attack such as this happens. The local police, with all due credit, somehow comes out looking like a bunch of ants swarming about with no idea on what to do. The only measure of pride I felt during the entire episode was when I saw NSG commandos rappel down from helicopters onto the roof of the Chabad centre. As a country, the image that we portrayed was still one of a deer caught in the headlights, not knowing what hit us...an image that certain microphone totting jerks calling themselves journalists, certainly did nothing to improve. They may have as well gone in and interviewed those fine gentlemen from yonder asking them about their views on the whole thing.
