Black

Black is the mood of the country, black the hearts and minds of those who blew out the lives of the innocent, black is the colour of money that funds the deadly games with human dice that are played by a fanatic few, and black is the future of this country with its black-hearted leadership which seeks to politicize even such colossal human tragedy.

July 13, 2011 was a Black Day in the history of humanity. Unfortunately the dates are piling up –  11/9/2001, 11/7/2006, 26/11/2008, 13/7/11. The number 11 is a recurring one in all these deadly dates. Oh 2011, go away quickly!

  2. Unfortunately, the going away of 2011 is not going to put an end to terrorist attacks. At the risk of sounding pro-BJP, we may start with cleansing our poor nation of outfits like, Congress, Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and the CPI/CPM.

    1. You are right about that. But BJP is tarred with the same brush and has no moral high ground to stand on. We need to throw out all parties — all those that favour castes, religions and vested interests and oh, those that profess to eschew these factors too; read CPI and CPM.

  3. Ever since that day, I have avoided newpaper, TV, internet like the plague. Just couldn’t hear the visuals, but can it be avoided?? The pain of the people cannot be ignored, can it.
    Why the innocents have to be killed, If they had guts they should have killed the politicians

    1. Unfortunately even those who order these killings are part of some political outfit in their own countries. the truth is that we are an apathetic nation, allowing millennia of marauders, conquerors and killers to enter our shores and do what they wanted.

  6. 2011? I dont think it has anything to do with 11.
    I mean, all these attacks are planned on such dates just to make em seem evil. The number is just the visible thing 🙂

    1. There is a strange coincidence in the dates and much as the rational mind tells you it is hogwash, one can’t but feel the spookiness and apprehension.

  9. I am disappointed with Indian Intelligence

    1. Actually it is not the intelligence, but the failure to act on the intelligence reports as in the present case. who cares if a few hundreds lose their lives in the bargain? there are always more empty promises.

    1. It is unfair of the govt. to let its citizens at the mercy of these monsters. When other affected countries have taken stern measures, why can’t we? Is being ‘nice’ that important vis-a-vis innocent human lives?

    I hope that because of all these recurring “11”, there won’t be some new superstition linked with this number. We need government and people to fight the terrorism.
