My annual college fest almost got called off. We had to plead to the princi so much for not losing out on it in our last year. Plus, we organized a peace concert instead of the usual gig; which was just what it should be, peaceful :-)
St. Paul’s cathedral, kolkata, had its usual mass yes, but they distributed black wrist bands to all devotees as a mark of protest against terrorism.
My own city has probably been worst hit, Christmas parties canceled, carols not sung, churches empty :-( city after 8pm empty, suspicion in everyone’s eyes, no Santa on the road, no massive list of Christmas shopping, no eating vodka cake coz Joe uncle called off his party :-(
We canceled our New Year party, coz it didn’t feel like celebrating and dancing all night.
Country mourning, we protesting, attending rallies, skipping parties, all our lives definitely affected.
A software engineer was beaten to death because he refused to financially contribute in Mayawati’s birthday celebrations.
Why do politicians exist in any state?
To introduce, reform, direct, re-direct, to voice ‘our’ opinions in the parliament, to represent us.
Very sad that it has reduced to birthday celebrations and election rallying with some disoriented young volunteers.
May peace be conferred upon this land
Please give sadh-buddhi to my country-men.
Praise the lord!
