Blood soaked streets
Bullets replacing crackers
Twinkle in the eyes replaced with an emptiness
Breaking news breaking hearts and spirits

Freedom fighters who don't understand freedom
Taking lives to free their souls
Freedom they long for is forever lost
Their guilt will never set them free

Soldiers ready to die for me
stepping in the line of fire
With a flimsy bullet-proof vest
With pride of the country at heart

Politicians taking their customary rounds
Celebrities outraged at talk shows
Journalists hawking their "sources"
News junkies watching the unfolding story

The final assault started 8 hours ago
Taj is up in flames again
Helpless Indians in front of the tube
Wondering what have you done to my home...what did you do to my home

Its just heart breaking man. And so, so helpless a feeling

They had internal support.
Money. logistics. intelligence.

Makes my blood boil.

Delusion is a symptom of the schizoid.

Anger followed by disappointment and now resting in dispair...can't understand how we let this happen especially after Bangalore, Delhi, Jaipur, Surat...
