Dil Waalon ki Dilli...

Yet another bomb blast, in Delhi this time, innocent lives lost. Children left orphans, families destoyed. Bread-winners left handicapped. No words, no monetary relief can work...
and yet.. everything goes on as usual. aakhir dil waalon ki dilli hai.. the customary speeches of the spirit of the city, of the tragedy, and the survivors and the miracles.
Feeling low right now, just wondering, what kind of environment are we leaving behind for the future generations. Just a weird thought, our children and grand children will be growing up in the scenario where terrorism , jihad, nuclear holocaust will be day to day buzz words. they will be such common part of everyday life that we will be insensitive to death, until someday, we loose our near and dear ones.
Is this the beginning of the end?
PS- I have seen what terrorism can do.. i was in that train, 07/11/2006, Mumbai.

"Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans" - John Lennon.
These days i find asking myself again and again. What is life all about. You spend all your time making it worthwhile, you slog, you worry about innumerable things, work towards a better future.. with a total disregard about the present. There is a constant fear of past catching up.. you wish to believe that you are strong enough to handle it when the time comes..
Rob in "Rock On" says " Life doesnt give anyone a second chance".. so true...  so many times, we wait for that second chance all our lives, but it never comes. Life itself is a One Time only affair. No retakes, no second innings.
Life is a gamut of emotions..
Love life.. Live life..
