25 killed and 100 seriously Injured... and there are more yet to be found
5 bombs blasts... 4 defused... and there are more
Three of my favorite places in Delhi ruined... just like that
Shock ... Trauma ...Pools of blood ... humans reduced to a debris of nothing
I call everyone I know and Its scary cuz I cant reach most of them.
I had a strong intuition about something being wrong. I was terrified as I could not reach my bro. My brother and his family just escaped the gaffar market explosion. I am happy he did.
Mom was adamant about going to CP today. I was acting lazy and she threatened me she would go alone. I am glad we didn't go. For the first time in my life, I am happy she gave up on me.
I turn on the TV
She lies there in red kurti and orange salwar, all stained with blood - her face covered with her duppatta.
He sits there, unable to get up, too much pain and blood lost and not enough energy to ask for help. But he manages to raise a hand and call for someone.
A camera zooms in on him capturing his helplessness, and I wonder what kind of a person this cameraman is? How heartless he must be cuz he did'nt seem to think that its important to help the injured first!
I suddenly feel guilty of being relaxed and happy cuz there are so many people who did not escape. Cuz there family will never see them again.
A 10 year balloon seller is being harassed by media and police cuz he mite have seen the terrorists.
I see a woman crying, trying hard to hold her fort. She's a mother to a 25 year old who has lost his leg forever, who is lying on a hospital bed with blood all over him, who is smiling cuz he knows his mother will be shattered to see him in pain.
And to that - Home Minister says, lets not make it a political issue... we cant save "all citizens", we are "justifiably helpless".
But at the same time I see two very brave NSG men trying to diffuse a live bomb, risking their life for the sake of our lives.
They say we don't need a new law or force to stand against this terrorism. They say the existing laws are good enough.
I say, F**k your damn law... cuz it also says oral sex is prohibited and I am sure you must be getting some action like that for sure. If I forget to pay my taxes, would I be spared then cuz "all citizens" cant be tracked? If someone kicked you in your ass and shot you or your relatives, would you be "justifiably helpless" then?
To all those who are responsible for this - the ones who did it and the ones who were responsible for preventing it but could not - may you never have to face such a situation but kindly do not belittle someone else's pain and loss cuz unless you are in their shoes, you will never know how hard they bite and the scars they leave forever. Thank you very much for not being there.
