Ae Malik Tere Bande Hum...

What is the world coming to? Is nothing sacred anymore? If children can be killed in cold blood, if schools become battlegrounds, if teachers are burnt to death, if parents are left holding bloody bodies and charred remains...then what hope do we have?

What a horrific end to 2014. In this season of hope and good will and good cheer, what inhumanity.

Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore said that the birth of every child proves that God has not given up on the human race. But today can we call ourselves humans?



My heart and prayers go out to all those who have suffered.

  2. It is all truly horrible Neeru. Like you, my thoughts and wishes are going out to those who have lost loved ones. More than ever, we need to work together, to have hope, and to be open to one another. We need to start with ourselves, I think, and treat others kindly. Otherwise this horror takes over....

  3. Neer, well said. Even mystics have no answers to your questions. Every one of us is deeply touched and grieved by the horrendous massacre in Pakistan. Why children? You keep asking.
