As we remember Mumbai 26/11

Standard

Today is 26/11.

Hearts were torn as a city, a country bled to death.

It’s been six years when the foundation of a city, Mumbai was terribly shaken.

A city, on whose resilience we took pride in, was brought to a halt.

Is the Spirit of Mumbai still intact?

26 11

A grim reminder how life can be so cheap!

Lifeless bodies lying  still in pool of blood, gun shots blasted as merciless killers roamed free in the city.

The ghosts of the past still haunt us,

as we look back, standing powerless at terrorism unfurling itself.

Our city bled to death.

A date that we shall never be able to obliterate from our existence.

Wounds may never heal, perhaps.

The anguish, angst and pain felt at such heinous attack still reverberates in our human mind and soul.

As we remember the innocent victims and soldiers who laid their lives for their city and country,

we shall always ask why Mumbai was insecure and may still be.

Yet, Mumbai and its citizens won the war against the cowards.

Vast sea of human masses-simplest men and women-became one force to conquer war of hatred with love.

We shall never forget.

Remembering 26/11, Mumbai.

  1. You know Mumbai is one of my favourite places I have visited. My heart goes out to everyone who was there at the time, and condolences to relatives of those who died.

    Mumbai and its citizens earned their place in my heart. The police officer who helped me at the airport, the taxi driver who accepted the last of my rupees because that was all I had, and the people we met day to day. Beautiful city, I trust Mumbai to recover.

    • I agree with you. What I love bout the city is how life is lived king size with people working so hard and most of them so selfless. There were plain strangers who helped me a lot in the city during times of distress. I had similar experience at the airport. Mumbai always get up on its feet though the wounds will remain, I feel.

      • we too had similar mishappenings one in Guwahati and another one in a school in Dhemaji (where many schoold kids died) a few years back and these two also are massacres and sadly only people of our region say the silent prayers. I am not comparing these unfortunate events but it feels really sad. :/

      • I agree: Such massacres are always a sad state all over the world and many parts of India where the media choose to downplay it.
        I know you not comparing: Such incidents need to put at the forefront which shows the divide.

  2. Yes,we remember as 26/11 will never be forgotten.Point is….when and how will the culprits be hanged?When will they take action against those media anchors who literally helped Pakis by giving minutest details on TV
