Terrorism is weapon of weak – a cloak draped by someone who wants to hide the weakness by terrorizing the innocent who are strong enough to survive every passing day with love, compassion and affection. Those innocent souls who are somewhere out busy shopping for the daughter’s wedding, the innocent woman negotiating with the grocery seller, the rickshaw puller ignoring the sweat on the body, the children learning the tunes of ‘Jana Gana Man’, an old man trying to get his old watch repaired! A sudden jolt comes and turns the sweet chaos of city into an eerie silence! A silence so deafening that punches you right in the middle on your heart with such great force that for a second you wish you were killed too! You pray for the trauma to end! But it doesn’t. It comes back and back – sometimes in your city, sometimes in other. You watch the hungry media shoving the 5 inch long microphone into the mouth of survivors for one nice byte. You read the front page of newspapers telling stories about how many died, how many injured- you are never to sure- all papers show different figures. Terrorism is not novel – its been hackneyed upon us deliberately- its a tattoo on our bodies – we take pleasure in showing it through our bleeding shoulders! Hope to see just one day during my life time where I can proudly say – ‘Sanity prevails’. Lighting this candle in my heart for this hope..
Lets pray what we prayed back in school..its powerful! Lets chant the powerful Gayatri Mantra three times
Aum Bhur Bhuvah Swah, Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi, Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat
ॐ भूर्भुव: स्व: तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं । भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि, धीयो यो न: प्रचोदयात् ।।
Oh God, the Protector, the basis of all life, Who is self-existent, Who is free from all pains and Whose contact frees the soul from all troubles, Who pervades the Universe and sustains all, the Creator and Energiser of the whole Universe, the Giver of happiness, Who is worthy of acceptance, the most excellent, Who is Pure and the Purifier of all, let us embrace that very God, so that He may direct our mental faculties in the right direction.
