Mumbai is Saying...


We pronounce life more loudly, 
With every wound they inflict.
No matter how hard they try to break us,
The spirit of 'Mumbai' will always exist.

  15. I fully subscribe to your sentiments. The spirit of Mumbai has stood the test of time. But the spirit has started flagging now as was evident recently when two youngster who accosted an eve teaser gang were brutally killed while the public watched and no one came for the rescue.

  29. How long are we going to praise the Mumbai's spirit ??? The reality is that Mumbai has no option but to stand up & go to work..And what about that cruel guy Kasab ? Will he ever get punished ?

  30. There are no words that can describe the loss of life, the loss of trust, and the peace that those days gifted us with, yet you have been able to write these powerful heartfelt lines. While the answer to violence can never be violence, I wonder if we are too resilient, too spirited, and too accepting. We have become immune to the joke that public life is all around us. We continue to elect corrupt and criminal public representatives, we continue to portray women as objects, and we continue to teach our children with our example that nothing matters other than material success. We accept Manu Sharmas, Ajmal Kasabs, Narendra Modis and Uma Bharatis. All we want after the blood is on the street is that someone appreciates our never-say-die spirit, our resilience, our ability to bounce back and continue accepting the hypocrisy within our selves.

    Incidents like 26/11 should make us look within ourselves to end the discrimination and inequities that we carry within our selves. Got carried away, but my backspace button has other work to do. It needs to backspace on the violence and bias that I carry within me. Thanks for waking me up, Saru.

  55. we lost officers due to faulty equipment is that resolved??are we doing enough for those that are protecting us? Do we forget and carry on with our lives too soon without making things right...U bet We do...LEts come into action with corrupt officials who put our lives at risk to fill their pockets. Accountability for our Tax paying citizens...

  62. Nice Post !

    But I still feel a little different now that Kasab is still alive while the victims and their families got punished for no reasons :

    Its time we answer back !
    And put our point right down their veins
    its time we let make them face,
    the scream of death and the way it pains.
    for how long shall we light candles ?
    for how long shall we pardon the sinners ?
    and how long shall we allow the blunder..
    and bury our sorrow and remorse down under...
    for one day, it will explode..
    and one day , we will say 'no more'
    so why not today , why not now ?
    show them we too punish and show them how !
    Take out the guilty on the Mumbai roads ...
    drop him between those, he hurt the most....
    between the people who lost their own..
    let him face their anger
    coz since that black day,each moment,it has grown !

  63. I beg to differ. The "spirit of Mumbai" is no more than the 'majburi' of Mumbai to keep earning its bread and butter even though there are deadbodies strewn around.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Sadly...The country isn't heading towards a particularly bright future..It pains me to be so skeptic..But the facts and figure are just too demotivating....

    ReplyDelete
  65. A great tribute...
    That day can never be forgotten...

  66. Life goes on..
    all what left is dates and memories.
