The daily post- Scars
Sometimes over silly arguments  riots start between two communities. Goons from both communities form a mob. Mob has no face only frenzy. They kill innocent people, burn them alive, rape women, loot and destroy property of each other. Without thinking that they were the same people with whom till yesterday they were chatting, celebrating. Their suddenly aroused hatred, madness makes them hurt each other mindlessly.
After police intervention when riots subsides, those who have suffered loss of their parents, siblings, friends and neighbors remains to nursing their wounds. They are scarred for life. Won’t they wait for the chance to seek revenge? The vicious circle of revenge never stops.
We have learned nothing from the past decades of riots.
When will all this stop? When will people learn to live in peace and harmony?
Wise man said
forget the past
learn to forgive and forget
hate the crime and not the criminal
time will heal all the wounds
but
what if the wounds from the past still bleed
what if the scars of injustice are etched
permanently on soul
what when they don’t let you
live in peace
what when to even the score
they vehemently plead

 

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  3. When an injustice has been done to another person, to even the score only brings another injustice. Someone has to make the decision to stop trying to get even, someone has to forgive and forget. Show love to your enemy, then he cannot show you injustice, unless he is a wild animal. Wild animals destroy themselves in time. We have to somehow learn to love and to trust one another, only at that time. Will there be anything resembling peace between people.

    • What you are saying is correct and is for any sane person. But Recently there have been so heinous crimes towards women, children weak and poor and when you see criminal get away with light punishment…Can we reason with suicide bombers, terrorists. We are living under daily threat that our dear ones will come back or not. I don’t know whether I’m able to express myself. I agree that we must learn to live in harmony and peace. Thanks for your comment.

  4. Very right…people want to live in peace..but usually some vested interests drive a wedge between communities..instil fear against each other..and people get so desperate they attack each other..its within ourselves to not let these forces win..hatred can only destroy and only love has the power to rebuild ..
