Mumbai’s Spirit and India’s resilience!!

The day was full of messages..messages that seemed to scream at the inaction that we as a nation are facing…following are some of the status messages that i came across on my G Chat

-The undefeatable ‘Mumbai Spirit’ – a mask for our deep fears, very sense of repeated defeats, wretchedness, and incapability to act.

-This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.

-Taj/Oberoi/Nariman… is this end or beginin…FIGHT TERRORISM NOW

-“Death by a thousand cuts”. That’s the strategy being used here against India. Question is: Will Indians respond by adding to the cuts themselves? Or by stopping the hand that aims to cut them?

-Slightly Disturbed…

-scary shit

And some verses of a poem on one of the many Facebook groups created ((Mumbai Terror Attacks : I condemn it) to protest against this inaction

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out
