peace for the world,
peace through words.
yet the strength of an illusion depends on the perceiver
And when time comes we break it and adhere .
Let it be chains or bars ,
Nothing can stop the light from penetrating the walls ,
The eye can see through the darkness ,
That which shall glow will show
And where there is fire there is smoke .
Wings of the mind are our thoughts
And in there many wars were fought .
We can now stretch them and fly ,
From the moonless night , rise ;
Our actions are right ,
Our hands never lose their sight .
Freedom of the sky ,
Shadows of a full moon night ,
The balance is so straight ,
Everything is an illusion ,
Yet we do need to live in it ,
So that we can break it .
The light shines the brightest

Enough is Enough! Yes we say this again and again. The inital reaction has now subdued and it is replaced by more sensibile thoughts,by whoever is capable of such.
First before I get into the whole saga and try to put my sagacity to some use,let me first salute,those Men who gave their lives for saving many other.While we can be skeptic and claim that they were just doing their duty,that in it self is something great.I am not so sure,I would have sacrifised my life for the sake of others.Hemanth Karkare, was under pressure and received SMS threats ,but still he went in and fought the terrorists,even while his intergrity was questioned. Sandeep Unnikrishnan and Havaldar Gajendra Singh and the other police and special forces officers and the staff of the hotel who helped save people also died fighting the scoundrels and they are the heroes of today.For a nation,which is so politically and religiously complicated,we all salute these men,without whom terror might have ceased the economy.
And ask me to name these people a week or a month from today,i don’t i will remember.That is always the problem,we all say so much,all of us blame and point fingers,yet we all forget.After all immaterial of whether we are from the mango selling class or the Taj class ,we have our business to do.We will be bothered about terror and the ugly reality of human goodness not being a whole some reality only when our own valued lives are threated.There is nothing wrong with that too.
In a way,this is our defence mechanism.Yet this attack will be remembered by us,for such action is not blase ,this is fresh and it has hit,the rich,the people who make India.The media which usually is more bothered about an actress sneezing or if an actor is wearing a pink shirt or concentrating on cricketers for a change had some real NEWS.At last the NEWS channel had their use,albeit,all of them showing the same thing.Popular NEWS anchors were rushed in and even NISHA(for those ignorant people,it is the name of the cyclone which cycled over Tamil Nadu) was forgotten with the rest of the celebrities as operation Cyclone went on.
We all were agape at the site of the Taj hotel burning.”A thing of beauty is a joy forever” and yet such beauty was smeared with such sinister force that you wonder “is this reailty?”.Even as rain swalloed our streets here in Chennai,we all watched the vice humans and the various forces battle it out.After all Mumbai is the financial capital of India.For a moment all of us forgot the communal divide which someone was trying to enforce upon us.We all watched as an intergrated force,fought the terrorists who had come here to die and blow up an icon of India.As smoke and fire spread through the Taj and the internal structure was vanadalized we were taken by an eerie thought-is this what happens to the Business India?
The battle has ceased to be religious,it is now the developed and modern against the retarded and mideval minds who want to own our world.At the same time,the terrorists who died are not the devil himself.They were mere pawns in the game,who were comanded and sacrifised by a much larger force.
By attacking an icon and entering through the gateway of India,those unscrupulous beings have mocked the nation.And our soveregnity was preserved and shall be.For once,the politicians have not been able to play their games.For once we question them and for once they are answerable to us.
And as more and more clues regarding the affiliation of the terrorists to various international orgainzations are found,what are going to do? Since the media has branded this as India’s 9/11,are we going to go out and blow another nation? Of course that is not going to help,this attack has proven that.Cutting a branch is only going to help the tree grow better.What we need to do,is cut the tree at its base and then make sure we utilize it properly.
What we are facing ,are groups who are ready to die.And fear is their weapon.If an other nation has an hand in this,then it time to end this for once and all,but then at what cost?
First let us see the face of the enemy and not fight something which has no proper form.We need to get the people who are behind these attacks and make them responsible for all this.They should be made to work and manually replace every inch of a building.They should be made to understand how much it takes to build those buildings.These people are no idiots of of course,they know what they are doing.
They should have a cause,so to them let us say ,we want to hear what is their cause.But no cause is so great that you should kill so many people.This is not a question of fighting fire with fire.In the end we shall all be burnt in our own,which these people anyway are willing to do.
We have to respond though, but how?The problem is there is no thrid persons view here.We are all in it.We need to think from outside.
We need to make those cowards come out and fight face to face and take responsbility,that is of course if anything human is left in them.Whatever happens,weeds will always be there in a garden.But among humans,the difference between a weed and a useful plant is how a person’s mind is lead.So let us make sure we do not give space for more terrorists to be born.And to those existing-lantena is a weed,but it is still grow as a ornomental flowers.But if these are not humans but only useless weeds,sorry its time to cull.

As Mumbai faces its first terror attack,Chennai is washed out thanks to torrential rainfall.
Coast to coast the country faces problems,as stock markets and schools are closed.
Chennai:-The state capital and the rest of the state face cyclone “NISHA”.You can see the Satellite picture here.
Image from here.
The city faces such rain after many many years.And my exams are postponed.While I can happy about not having any exams more than 50 have died and many lives have been affected.Food packets have been dropped from helicopters in Cuddalore. Most of the major roads in the city are flooded.
Picture from here.
Terror in Mumbai:-
The whole world watches as two of Mumbai’s most famous hotels have been taken over by terrorists and many people inculding forigners have been held as hostage.You can read more about it, here.
Blogosphere too has had many posts here are a few :-
So as in front of comp,more and more people are suffering thanks to cyclonic fury and terrorists bullets.Now in what why does this affect me? As a human being,I wonder how people can so kill others so frivolously.Who are these people and what do they want,are the questions which everyone is asking.The premeditated,planned and till now executed properly executed attacks has shocked the whole world.Symbolically terror has now entered India,through the Gateway that the British exited.While we cannot do anything about storms and rainfall,we can do a lot about terrorism.
While a lot of people can be held responsible for not spotting the threat and our “intelligence” not being clever enough can be zeroed on,it is time to question who is at the base of all this.Is it because something went wrong with their lives that these people allowed themselves to be brain washed?
Or is their condition so desperate that they need to blow up and destroy to save themselves?
Whatever are the reasons ,we will soon know,but one thing we do need to do is make sure that as a society we stick together and make sure we are heard.This is a complete mockery of whatever little is left of democracy.It is very easy to just write and talk,but we do need to do something about this.Maybe we can snap these terrorists at their roots,if we make sure there is no need for them to take to such activities.
That of course is possible if and only if,there are no religious motives.For if religion is involved,there can be no concrete solution-who can stop the waring Gods? As it is obvious that religion has a hand in all this,we need to reduce this to a level where religion is excused and for once,these people are made responsible for what they did ,where their affiliation to a religion is not a mask for them to hide behind.
Enough is Enough,so let us make it clear.If you do not believe in violence,be ready to say so and if it takes us to do something about all this,let us do-it takes more to be calm than violent.Let us not play their game their way and panic and hurt and destory.Nor at the same time we should cuddle up in fear.And if any terrorist is reading this- Why do you do that?
P.S: you can display the above picture in your blog if you want.

And when the world laughs,
Who is there to cry?
When the world cries,
who is there to laugh?
When violence is the tongue,
and when justice is being hung,
who will ever dare to live life?
For some humbug virtue,
Something which has no value,
the human race,
tares its own face.
With nothing better to do,
a few beasts,of no virtue,
take justice into their hands-
justice being destruction,
creation returning to sands.
Who’s right is this life?
None,but every one alive,
yet,those insecure animals,
in the name of God,
on God,throw Shod.
When did it all begin?
but whenever it did,
humanity became a misfit.
While ants build their hills
and birds their nests,
when the wild has its dens,
and underground holes,
we, another expression,
destroy their and now ours,in unison.
One devil,gave birth,
and one the world is too hurt,
for the progeny,
is the curse to humanity.
Though the curse is all alive,
and distinct,some just abide,
and let it use them without a fight.
When the world,expresses
itself in creation,we preach destruction.
Oh! whatever the God is,
in its name,you have dug graves,
and now in it you throw the world,
just another dead waste.
When life has lost its value,
what is the use,of respect to the dead,
when we destory our brothers
and sisters and their value,you scavenge,
what use is praying for them?
In our right,we were to be thinkers,
but some apple we bit,
that made our mind a misfit.
What is the use of sickle,
when you don’t have seeds?
what is the use money,
when you steal and abduct?
Somewhere,in the universe,
destruction takes place-
to sow a seed of creation.
And on earth,i hope for the same
reason,destruction is taking place-
when we can’t smile at our own face,
then we don’t need this earth,
or an over blown idea of a superior race,
So to the universe,
let your destruction take place!
REST IN PEACE!
Oh! wonderful earth,
let something emerge,
long after we are gone,
that will give joy to you,
who was nature, when born,
but now made wan.
When humans are gone,
lighten up and then form,
a race,that will put a smile on your face.
REST IN PEACE,
a while,let humans dig their grave,
nothing will stop them,for that is their fame.
REST IN PEACE!
P.S:- Wrote this after reading this post.

Just add evil to the end of the word ,God,
God + Evil=godevil or Go devil !
So You know,what is happening now.Everything is done,in the name of God! And the actions which it leads to are called evil.So basically we have let the devil go around,without actually knowing it.So the best thing to do would be,remove the evil from the equation.That way we will have only the “God”.Now that we know,what is happening,lets stop encouraging the Devil.Let us say no to things,which we can see are “evil”.So let us all say a strong no to Terrorism,first.We understand we had encouraged the Devil,now we want to stop it.Let us all together say no to terrorism.We should remember one thing though,it is people like you and me,who make up the terrorist too.So what we should take away is the “evil” and see the reason for their action and try to address it and not go around calling them evil.Behind everything there is a cause.Who knows ,if you and me aren’t able to find justice,won’t we too pick up the gun? We can argue all we want that,one wrong cant’t be corrected by another,but then to the person who commits it,it is not wrong,but justice!
One thing common between whole of humanity is God.Even if you don’t believe in it,you acknowledge the idea’s presence among others.Let us use,what we have in common to remove the “evil”.The world looks black and unknown,if we close our eyes in fear.Let us open it and face what hurts us.The times of “whose god is it?” are gone.We are in an age where ,”Our God ,it is”.We need to stop hurting each other,for the sake of ourselves.What would you get if you destory more than what was done to you? For the twin tower a country? But even if the war is justified,the crimes commited after that can ever be justified.We don’t need wars and weapons,they are used against brothers and sisters,only when we are scared of them and feel threatened.You can always talk it out.No one is superior and no God is greater han the person and his belief.So together let us all say, ” We say no to terrorism.” And let us all make sure,no one is hurt.By no one i mean,the terrorist also,remember they too are people.It is very easy to say,forgive,but it is tougher to practise.Even if we don’t forgive them,at least let us stop them from destorying more of what we have created.they have had their pound of flesh and now they better stop.We should fight them not with guns,but with the thing,which threatens anyone the most,understanding.It should be a fair trade,but not in terms of life.If they want infrastructure,then we can give them,but in return,they need to add to the development,not merely abstain from killing.If they want their own land,we can give them that too.But then,a land in which people support them.It is no more about politicians,it is about us,the people.After all,who said they know better?And we are not blind,we can see what is happening.It is no more about someone,it is about You and me.So let us join together and do this for the most selfish reason ,” to live”.The war got over,a long time back,humanity lost it.So together we need to bring humanity back on track.
