Rustic Reflections

I am a common man..

Posted on: November 27, 2008

Terrorists have again invaded our sense of security and tranquil. This is not the first time though.  They have stormed our lives time and again. They think that with a crazy bunch of brainwashed, callously hatred-seduced marauders, they can snatch our peace and harmony. In a way their perception of this kind is true, because we, we the common people, let them believe this way. Passive governance of our country and a meek stance make them believe that they can come at any time and destroy our lives.

I love Mumbai as its a place of intensity, tenacity and an indomitable spirit and I salute its undying spirit. Yesterday these out-of-mind so-called revolutionists, again barged in my city in a ruthless cavalcade of atrocity. They may be doing this as a part of their wayward nonsense jihad, but in a way its a Big Question posed to us, to the people of this country, to our ability to endure barbarity, to our strength of resilience and to our sense of aggression.

These bandits, these plunderers should be just wiped off this earth in a single sweep of head-on blunt attack. And if our governments are feeble to take any strong action, it is our responsibility to give them a strong slap in face and jab them out of our lives.

‘A Wednesday’ movie conveys the same message that if a common man has its way, he can do anything to drive away and to end these filthy beings. Unfortunately or may be intentionally, terrorists took this despicable step on a Wednesday.

Here’s a warning to these terrorists from a common man…

I am a common man
from a common clan
Resilient by action
Not just by force or exaction

I am someone’s son
As strong as a blazing sun
Resolute as a loaded gun
Not easy to make me run

I am someone’s brother
Vigilant as a valiant soldier
Watchful with verve and fervor
Not alone by Rakhi’s tether

I am someone’s husband
Steadfast with a sturdy hand
Commited with a staunch stand
Not just by a black-beaded strand

I am someone’s friend
Trustworthy with no end
Always there to depend
Not just to pretend

I am a common man
from a common clan
Resilient by action
Not just by force or exaction
