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..

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 was the date on which the last post was posted on this page.

And while contemplating what to really write, the world just change.

The Indian/Modi Government decided that the cash in your pocket is useless, and worthless, and that for the next 50 odd days, there will be major hiccups, and what not while running your households. Minor expenses such as vegetables (from the thela wala vendors), will become a task, as you search for change under the mattresses and the sofas!

While, Shayon disagrees with me, there will be major ripple effects that our maglomaniac PM forgot to take into consideration. Though, I must appluad him for taking this bold step.

And, while, we were reeling under the shock of our worthless money, a bankrupt, misygyonist, racist, tax evader, capitalist maglomaniac won the elections in the most powerful country in the World! He did Trump us all.

And amongst all of this, do you all even remember what were you guys upto on July 11, 2013, when the last post went up.
