Let us Unite and teach

We were on a night out in a pub, and watching the local channel. After attending few, the bar tender switched the news channel. We were shocked to know the news. I could not understand the velocity then.

After coming home sought the internet to know more and was deeply shocked. From this morning I have been sitting in front of the laptop, and trying to know more and more about all the incidents that have happened. Though it is slightly relieved now, after hearing that the commandos have taken control of all the places, my heart goes to the families of those who were killed, the brave officers, police constables, fire brigades, hotel staff, guests, press and the public.

I was almost on tears when I read news about Hermant Karkare, Major Unnikrishnan and many more names whom I do not remember immediately. The videos of Hermant karkare wearing his bullet proof coat and walking with other officers into the hotel is going to remain in my mind for ever. The same way the sight of Major Unnikrishnan relatives receiving his body is heart rendering. This is only to name few whom I saw. My whole family felt very sad on reading the news about many foreigners who were present there for various reasons. It was more disheartening to know that some westerners who loved visiting India were targeted, especially the American who was killed along with his daughter.

After all what did the perpetrators achieve? What was their motive? They are ordinary individuals, who could not think. They were highly motivated and have behaved like a machine. Their purpose was to instil fear among public and civilians. This time they have targeted five star hotels to scare the foreigners and just jeopardise the economy development. If they have had any demands, they could have taken few hostages and started a dialogue. They did not. Their leaders did not have any. What all they wanted to do is to create instability for the fast developing economy, create a disparity among the two neighbours who have started understanding each other recently. It is time now for the Global village, to join together and start thinking strategies globally. Just like the same way as G20 joined together to discuss the credit crunch, global warming and etc., tackling terrorism should be given top priority. Today, it was Mumbai. Tomorrow it could be somewhere else in the world. Let all the countries unite and take measures.

Time has come for all the conflict to end. The aim of terrorism is to instigate the hatred. All these are made by man. So if we need to give them back we should stop pointing fingers at others and work towards a common goal.

Time has come for leaders to change their strategies. Let there be difference in Language, soil, religion, culture, habits. But there should not be any difference in handling these terrorist.
They should be replied in their own language. Let us all unite in teaching them lesson. Life is too wonderful to die in this manner. Even a terrorist who was captured had expressed that he wanted to live.

After all even those gunned men’s mothers would not have wished their kids to destroy simple human beings when they grow. I am sure no mother would have sent her son or wished him good luck for such unscrupulous act.

Every other Government should discuss positively to curb these acts. All parties in each country should give top priority in uniting themselves against these acts, and give their heart and soul in combating terrorism. Let all the nations work together in destroying the roots of such network. Let us preach the world to love than to hate.

If we want to teach those perpetrators a lesson, let every good act continue. Let us not stop the trading, business, sports just for these rowdies. Let us tell them, that, if that is what they wanted, they cannot have it.

If there is a rose there will be a bee who will be attracted to suck the honey. We cannot be afraid of the bees and not have roses. We should have more roses and keep away the bees.
We should have lots of garden of roses for our future generation.

Thanks for the sane suggestion.

It is necessary to spread love, care and affection. Hatred should not be spread anymore. How we wish this will come true soon and our children will have peace.

Hope many bloggers will view your post and spread it everywhere.

Very true, the world must stand in humanity beyond anything separates us. These terrorist are immerse with innocence people whom mostly mortal in target, which stop us advancing them to destruction. They must realize even though they are surviving because of us.

Just in scare there is thorn in rose plant, does we stop from adoring them? We live and enjoy this beautiful life, that few can’t digest want to disturb. Wish are all are united, where unity is strength.

Change in mind set the need of the hour!! Yes, we need to and we do not have a choice if we have to survive.

"If there is a rose there will be a bee who will be attracted to suck the honey. We cannot be afraid of the bees and not have roses. We should have more roses and keep away the bees.
We should have lots of garden of roses for our future generation." Good thought indeed!!
