Reach Home Safe

Standard

It is the concern of every mother, father and   brother that their daughter or sister reaches home safely every day from school, college or work. But the Concern remains merely a mental concern, as we are all helpless when we are faced with adverse situations where the concern takes a jump out of our conscience and turns to frustration and anger for being utterly helpless.

Its a truth in light of so many events that have happened so far where crimes of sexual abuse against children and women are on the rise and the bureaucracy , judiciary and the government is unable to do anything to save these vulnerable section of our society form the ghastly crimes perpetrated upon them.

Its a myth to believe in the police or judiciary both are least sensitive and least bothered about these issues and wait for the time these issues will subside so that they can carry on again with access of ease to other concerns of their private benefits rather than the people. The government waits upon the victims to either die or the issue to die out so that they can continue enjoying in the parliament.

 

In view of the above its nonsense to go on blaming and protesting against all these elements of the Constitution rather its need that the people alone should do something to save the women in the society so that they can feel safe and reach safe everyday. Its time we need some serious NGOs or Social Entrepreneurs in this regard who can come up with techniques and tools that can guarantee women s safety and even helps them to defend themselves.

If we are able to sensitize children in school, colleges and work places who can stand up for the women safety, they can help in guarding women if they come across or witness any crimes against them , even a change in the few may lead to remarkable sensitization that will flourish and people will be inspired even more to help the women. And in the meantime we can just protest for getting tough laws to protect women and help those victims to lead better life not as victims but as warriors.

 

Connecticut Kids : We Are Hopelessly Helpless !

Standard

The following poem i have written to dedicate to all the kids who were the most vulnerable victims of crimes across the world.

 

mumma i love you a lot

only you loved me i thought

i opened my eyes to see you

and to see this world all new

 

mumma I am growing up everyday

learning new words from you to say

that you love me and i love you so much

by letting me feel warm with your touch

 

mumma now take me to the school

My friends think of me so cool

i love to dance and eat and play

o i can make this world with my clay

 

mumma a man with a gun came

he was stupid with bad frame

he shot something at all of us

and we had red color upon us

 

mumma you do the best for me

and dont you worry nor miss me

am with my miss who loves me

is just lying beside me

 

mumma i wish you were there with me

or just that the mad man was never free

and that he never had a gun

to play with it or have  fun

 

mumma take care of you and my friends

make changes and some more amends

for i will come again to live life

only in a world of peace with no strife

 

My heart goes out for every kid and their parents who lost their lovely, sweet and innocent kids in the Connecticut school massacre. Again it makes me feel really helpless to see the vulnerability of kids who cannot protect themselves. They are easy victims and most vulnerable, which is why very often they are chosen to be the softest targets for the adults who take out their frustration, anger and hatred upon them.

My heart feels so heavy, when i get to hear,  read and see about such crimes inflicted upon kids. I feel the pain and agony inside me and feel more and more helpless every time on hearing  such painful events. I see, the parents of these kids having all their life in pain and loss, having lost kids at such a tender age where they had to see so much, had to do so much in life. There is nothing left a vacuum , an empty space and an echoing heart that wishes to see those kids alive.

I have taken this topic earlier too in my post (  https://thoughtsummary.wordpress.com/2012/12/10/are-we-really-helpless/ ) where i have discussed about the vulnerability of a child who cannot shield himself /herself from the adult world, and becomes an easy victim where they can barely understand about the events that goes around them.

I feel proud for being a teacher and for the teachers of the Connecticut school who put their lives to save the kids . They were the real responsible teachers as adults and their sacrifice leaves a message that it is the responsibility of the adult world to protect and safeguard the kids of the society, by making more stringent laws that must be enforced to maintain law and order for peace. Had it been for laws that could let only responsible citizens to be custodians of firearms, such incidents may not have happened.

There should be stricter rules for keeping guns under license and allotted to only people who really need to protect themselves on proving their need to the police and showing evidence , and not because they have an interest or hobby for collecting arms and weaponry to add on their walls .  Its not that the government cannot enforce such rules and regulations , it can do everything if it cares for the kids in society and it should do it, it had been high time ever since Columbine high school massacre.

What has happened has happened, but what we can do to protect the ones who are living, is of great concern and the society must involve themselves to think over these issues and come out with concrete solutions that can be implemented through higher authorities and law enforcing bodies.

 

 

I pray and wish heaven forbid such killings never happen and may god give courage and hope to the families to bear the  irreparable loss . God is keeping record of everything and will take care that justice prevails and may the beautiful kids reincarnate again on this earth to lead a prosperous and peaceful lives , in the mean time let’s pledge to make this world more safe for the innocence to bloom and foster.

 

Are We Really Helpless

Standard

You must have come across or encounter events which may cause an upsurge of heavy emotions within. Often i see and hear in the media about certain tragic and painful scenes where there wasn’t a single moment of humanity captured. newspapers, internet, news, etc are filled with such events that are cause for concern where the world is grossly wrong and no one is spared of brutality and pain .

Few months back I saw Wiki leaks Secrets and Lies documentary on History channel, it ensemble’s almost everything that concerns the whole world. Such up scale, top secret and most anonymous details of war and global agenda’s put out at public disposal is something to cherish and fear about at the same time.

Of all what wiki leaks does and shows the world, opens up secret files where the cruelties meted by the one’s in possession of power and dominance upon the ones who lack it . There has been a tremendous recovery among the first world countries to reach for peace and power but all in terms of their own strategy’s and systems, where it overlooks the life of common people being crushed in the third world countries.

 Am concerned and immensely concerned over such massive and gigantic problems and issues that face this world, where every system is the work of the people in power positions and every action stems from the mind of the top bureaucracy. The war in these third world counties have had the most brutal attacks and killings done by the armies, where an order to the army to kill the enemy is one thing that follows the system of such wars, but an order to the army to kill the enemy among innocent civilians is another thing, where it always overlooks the people over the trigger.

 Among the Killings even the civilians are not spared , they have to wash hands off their life without any reason, just because they were present at that time and became part of that war uncalled and untold, its all in the Video that wiki leaks have exposed so far. Its not terrorists we are talking about but the armies who can control all the other variables in their experimental missions. Among all the killings of people as adults is painful to see, but what really pains and sinks my heart is to see the children, small and completely innocent being hit by big bullets and bombs.

 What sin did they do ? How were they involved ? Did anyone had no mercy before killing them ?

All these questions surround me time and again when i witness such events, ranging from ,the fetus abortions and killing ,or  be it the roman times killing of royal lineage children almost mercilessly, or the little girls and boys tortured and abused painfully. some of the incidents like these are plenty in number and range from almost every kind of physical or mental pain afflicted upon an innocent child.

 A child who is helpless, innocent, unaware and mean no harm to anyone can not even retaliate if someone causes harm to them. Isn’t this the responsibility of  the adults who run this world from beginning to the end to create a safe haven for these little ones to bloom and foster. well things cannot change but surely CAN is what i believe and hope for.

And I dont know whether to lament over all this or not as am not Helping it to change anyhow even writing this blog or post. I can rarely help these kids, and these issues are at such big levels and spread out in almost every corner of this world its impossible to reach there to help or intervene in such matters.

To feel helpless about not being able to do anything and moreover to feel sad for the innocents being victimized and their helplessness to overcome, traumatizes me a lot. The major portions in my thoughts is, these kids be it from anyone from anywhere, to help them to reach them and to provide safety for them is what i insist to do for the kids who are at least in my reach.

 Since time immemorial, children had been ruthlessly killed for they are visioned as successors and future enemies that need to be annihilated before they could rise to power.

 Actually Its Not about Power Its about FEAR , the fear of existence, and doom . The fear to save one life by killing thousands .And because today Humanity is just left for namesake so these, fear reins the heart of every grown up who wants to create a space for himself or herself to thrive. In the process to thrive and create their own niche,they overlook humanity, which is the greatest concern of all today.
