Rest In Peace
“The world isn’t split into good people and bad people (Death Eaters). We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are”
– Sirius Black.
I so totally believe it and it felt so poignant to quote this amidst the backdrop of the events that are unfolding in my country.
Some incidents make me think we are worse than animals. Lots of things have happened in my country which I am not proud of but that is not my country’s fault. Moreover, I feel we have always let our country down.
We generally just talk, do nothing. Even as I write this down I feel I am doing the same thing. I have no idea how many are going to read this article.
I just feel our country deserves better human beings. My mother India deserves better from her kids for all the motherhood she has bestowed on them.
My fellow male species, please be in your limits that’s all I can say. It feels like a shell of dark humor with sadness inside.
When I woke up on the 18th of this month and read the news of a gang rape in a moving bus in my country, I was completely shocked. When I read what exactly happened, I cried, felt disgusted. Just couldn’t believe what people could do.
You can see in various papers around the world of what happened after the incident; protests, political games etc. I just want to talk about the girl who fought for thirteen days with death. I salute her courage, bravery and desire to live.
The first thing she wrote (as she couldn’t speak) when she gained consciousness was whether the people who committed the crime were caught? Then she expressed that she wanted to live. Her battle against pain, death, sadness will never be forgotten. She got the whole country united.
She passed away on the 29th due to multiple organ failure. Wherever she is now, hope she is happy. I will remember her and her fight for the rest of my life….
There have been lots of rape cases throughout the world. I feel anger and sadness when I come across such news. Being a guy myself, I feel ashamed to read about these things.
One more sad fact is all these incidents are just a mere game to a few political leaders,
Hope she gets justice, and that is all I can make myself say right now.
I am still proud of my country and of this world because it’s not their fault but ours, our race.
There is so much good in this world which can be shadowed by a single bad thing. A set of lit candles (light) can end up in darkness by a passing wind.
The end to this year cannot come soon enough for me, giving birth to a better, brighter world as we enter into a new year full of hope and expectations.
Take care of yourself, your loved ones and lead a happy life……
Happy New Year!
