Hello to Mujahideen or SIMI or LeT or Al Qaeda or whomsoever concerned.
This is a plea from a prospective victim, who might be stuck in any of your future executions. My feelings were hurt most, in the past two days. It was shocking and grieving to witness back-to-back attacks on Bangalore and Ahmadabad. I was completely dejected. The very sight of injured and dead ones over the television, were a pain at my heart.
I have always wondered about life. Nothing in this world is more livelier, than a life – whether it be a human life or an animal life or even a tree life. Nature takes long time in nurturing a life to prosperity. A mother has to wait at least 9 months, to see a life out of her; a gardener has to wait long to see a life out of the seed. This is because, life is precious and nature takes utmost care in its creation. Though man has gotten so far in artificially creating a life, in the form of test tube babies, no one yet has got the minutest idea on the nature’s process of life creation.
In contrary, man has devised numerous ways in putting an end to the life. Bomb culture, deforestation, killing animals for food are only a few to mention. Since it is easier to take a life than to give it, man has perfected this act. Bomb culture has become a serious problem in the recent times – with so many in India during the last couple of years.
Do you ever imagine how painful it is to search for the loved ones, among the heap of dead bodies? Do you ever think how cruel it is to see your loved one, with no limbs and life? I strongly agree that you have ideals and sacrificed your life for the sake it. But does your sacrifice license you to take away innocent lives? I fear, it does not.
India is a country, populated by a majority, who depend on a single family member’s income. Can you imagine the plight of such a family, who lost their bread-winner? Will they cry for the loss of their loved one or loss of their livelihood? How does this help to achieve your ideals? I fear, it does not.
I am proud to belong to the land of Mahatma Gandhi. Though I don’t agree with all his principles and ideas, I am a strong believer in non-violence. You gain nothing by hurting someone. You just gain his hatred. But by giving love, you get the same in return.
There is a saying in Tamil which crudely translates into – “Thievery cannot be stopped, until the thieves choose to”. Same holds good with Terrorism and Bomb culture. It cannot be stopped, until those who plan it, choose to abandon.
There are many ways in which you can broadcast your problems. There are numerous ways through which you can be heard. Terrorism is the least efficient way, in my opinion.
I consider everyone in this world to be a friend of mine. In that aspect, you are friend of mine too. Please take time to consider this plea, from a friend of yours. Don’t burn the flower of life, in the fire of terrorism. Put an end to this, in all possible ways you can. I would love to see my country full of love and life, once again. Please help me in envisioning it. JAI HIND.
A LOVER OF LIFE
