Sometimes over silly arguments riots start between two communities. Goons from both communities form a mob. The mob has no face only frenzy. They kill innocent people, burn them alive, rape women, loot, and destroy the 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 subside, those who have suffered the loss of their parents, siblings, friends, and neighbors remain to nurse their wounds. They have scars engraved on their mind.
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
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
