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
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
