Of lipsticks and dogs

There are politicians and then there are more politicians. They all suffer from the foot in the mouth disease. The Mumbai terror attack has just brought forth many of them in the limelight, all for the wrong reasons. First the ex deputy CM of Maharashtra says that “such small incidents do happen in big cities. This is no matter of intelligence failure”. Hallellujah!!!! God save me, I just want to ask what would a big disaster have meant for him?

Then there was the ex-CM of Maharashtra who promoted terror tourism by inviting his filmstar son and a director while going to Taj to check the carnage. Wow!!! Maybe the director would now cast his son as an NSG commando or something in his next movie that may be on the terror strikes. The CM, sorry ex-CM, had the audacity to say that he hadn’t taken any terrorists along. Thanks, Mr Deshmukh for showing this consideration.

Then we have our Kerala CM who went to visit Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s house to offer condolences. He was shown the door by the upset father and the poor CM couldn’t digest it. The CM, Achuttanthan went on record to say that had it not been for Major Unnikraishnan, not even a dog would have glanced at their house. Grow up man, only a dog can comment like this.

The latest is BJP vice President Mukhtar ‘some’ Naqvi saying that women who protest on streets wearing lipstick and powders are influenced by the West. Wow, at least they are the way they are, not hypocrites like you who is a black sheep dressed in white. naqvi, does your wife remove lipstick to seem real when she is upset? Well, we don’t do that for we are not acting.

I just have one question for these politicians. How many of you send your sons and daughters to join the armed forces or join an NGO for social causes? Speak only when you understand what suffering is…………..till then silence should be your best weapon.

Isn’t it ironic?

Yesterday, I attended my nephew’s annual parent’s day function. The day had begun on a somber note and we all went to cheer him for he had a tiny role in a play. The evening began with all of us being asked to observe two minute silence for the Mumbai terror victims.


There was a beautiful play towards the end of the day. It spoke of youth being lured to terrorism. A young man is hunting for a job. The first company rejects him as they only take locals. The second company ahs only reserved seats under the quota system. In the third company nepotism ruled. He is left dejected. A militant outfit lures him into their trap. He is sent on his first mission to plant bombs in the city. There is mayhem everywhere and the young guy realizes what he has lost in the bargain. They showed snippets of Godhra, Bombay train blasts, and other tragic terror attacks. The dance drama ends with an appeal to the youth not to fall prey to easy money and let communal violence be shunned. I was left numb, shivering and sobbing/.


Isn’t it ironic? This was a play that the school prepared a month in advance. It was shown on a day when we were hit by the worst terror attack that we have ever seen since 9/11. A terror attack that saw youngsters taking the city to ransom. What could be more ironic than this?


My eyes are not supporting me any more, for a watery haze had blurred my vision.


I am speechless. No words of comfort can soothe me now….


When will this get over? Has anyone got any answers?
