Cheers- To peace!!!


It is the one year anniversary of 26/11, a day when the financial capital of India was held hostage to terrorists... not for one, but for almost 4 days.
The ONLY days in the violent history of Mumbai where, the city came to a complete standstill... and when the entire nation was glued to their television sets... seeing a reality unfold in front of their eyes- which was no less than a movie.

There were candle marches then, there are candle marches that are going to mark the memories of those dreadful days on its first anniversary. But, we still refuse, refuse to take action- SOLID action.
Everyday without fail there is one blast... or new terror infiltration.... and not from our unworthy neighbours but also from within our own country.
Its a shame that we have become immune to violence, that it doesn't matter to us anymore.. or does it?
If it does- then we should just stand up and say ENOUGH to blood and guts... ENOUGH to losing of so many innocent lives at the hands of petty politics... and give a chance to live a peaceful life...

I pray, on 26/11, that we all realise the value of peace- and give Peace a chance.

We may be leading a life oblivious to the extent terror that is being unleashed everywhere and the number of innocent lives being lost. I came across a visual on television that said ‘Don’t Forget.Dont’ Forgive’. True, we should not let the violent incidents that kill innocent people go out of our consciousness and instead put pressure on the administration to bring the perpetrators to law.

Times are such we need to be alert and cooperate with the administration in matters of safety & security. Each one of us should get this into our habit.

As for the government, I think they should start taking a tougher stance.

Jai Hind..

Wassup on the block,guys ? Howzz everyone doin'?
At my end,I've finally got some respite from the grueling application season! Done with the application of most of the universities and also done with the interviews of a couple of them. For the last one and half month,I have been busy writing countless essay,and LoRs and filling and editing numerous information fields in applications. So will try to be more active on The Wall Mag.

@ Guys and gal
I'm sorry for being out of touch. It's real hectic out here (maybe till Friday next week- exams and all), then it should get a bit calm before the holidays- so expect something from me then.

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl
