I get up in the morning at 730 on Thursday, to come across yet another blast news on front page in TOI, right in my face saying 91 dead in a powerful car bomb blast. I immediately think back and realize that its been a month that every alternate day I’ve been waking up to a similar news. That's not what I want to see when I get up in the morning. Not once have I smiled looking at my newspaper in the past couple of days. What’s going on man? Where are the peace forces or where are the forces. To a person like me it does not really matter where this happening is, be it Peshawar, Lahore, Assam or Colombo coz for me the world is one big place to live and have fun in. I want to be free !! this is really restricting me, my flight, my thought process. These 91 ppl dying were not Pakis only, they were humans, who while moving out of their homes did not know what lies ahead, just like us who move out for office, lunch or parties.
A war is a different story, but definitely not like this. This is not the life and not the death you and me would agree to. And believe me we can not afford to get ignorant. Like noted Guru Shiv Khera says 'If your neighbor is in trouble and u can sleep well, the next victim is you'. So I can completely see this Taliban thing proliferating. To India and ahead. And hey, why isn’t this being curtailed. Pak claims to have military enough to take on India, why is it letting Taliban take human life for granted. US forces all over the region are not taking a stand either. Peace keeping forces from UN and else where have always been utilized only in floods and quakes so no point expecting anything from them.
Is there a solution. . . Can we do anything about this at all? Because I’m so much not OK with no peace around and I’m sure many of you would second this thought. So I’m leaving this incomplete till I hear something better towards this or till I think of something better about this . . . .
