Inspired by a report about Ajmal amir kasab, the prisoner of 26/11 Mumbai attacks, on how he cried during the trial of the 10 yr old little girl[ Devika Rotawan ], who was the youngest eyewitness identifying kasab as the person who fired at her making her handicapped for the rest of her life.

The Nation dreads
Dead violence breed’s
Thick blood spreads
Her dream shreds.

Reminiscing In horror
The night of terror
Stood she in the square
Pointing at the prisoner

The court was silent
Her voice was strident
On how he was violent
The pain - so vibrant

The little girl’s accusation
Gave ‘kasab’ suffocation
Deep in minds jurisdiction
He had no justification

His hands that triggered
Lost hold & shivered
His eyes that aimed
Knew, they were blamed
His mind that was blind
Knew, what means kind

The little girl’s fear
Drummed loud in his ears
Filling eyes with tears
The human within- appears.

The tears of the terrorist
Melting the deadly frost
Piercing guilt to his spirits
Creating a repenting crust

Let the tears flow
Keeping all guns low
Spreading peace that follow
Letting our little world glow

Being Pramoda... said...

hey RD..

thats a touching one..realyy..

what i can say more? u said every thing..

i have a point to make.. the people who have sent the person here are still hiding and lacking in guts to accept the fact..and he has been sufferring here..

as the little girl was hadicapped by him, similarly he was mentally handicapped by the persons who trained him and made his mind..


Swapna Raghu Sanand said...

The poem is beautiful just as it is so painful to be reminded about 26/11.

@ Dear Anu,
Your comment is really encouraging and leaves me honoured by those kind words, just a humble approach by me on the incident where the message of peace was already conveyed through kasabs tears, yet those tears that flowed to my heart too needed to be vented out right? Thus this attempt and as u said, let’s Hope for a Peaceful 2010 :)

@ Hi! Anya,

ചേരയെ തിന്നുന്ന നാട്ടില്‍ ചെന്നാല്‍ നടുകഷ്ണം തന്നെ തിന്നണമെന്നറിയാം. പക്ഷെ ഏച്ചുകെട്ടിയാല്‍ മുഴച്ചിരിക്കും എന്നതിനാല്‍ സാഹസത്തിന്‌ മുതിരുന്നില്ല. മനസിലാക്കിയതു വെച്ച് നല്ല വരികളോടുകൂടിയ ഭംഗിയുള്ള കവിതയായി തോന്നി.

Anya said...

Have a very wonderful healthy and happy 2010 :-)

Happy New Year!!!

PurpleHeart said...

Dear Unni, it's so touching to find posts from you that are most of the time, painful slices of real life ! You definitely need to publish a book on your poetries. I love your work ! Keep it up.

dear readers dais

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
that word is love ..
and love brings peace
let people learn to love so that they shot compassion into the air rather than gunshots..
very relevent one
love and regards

anupama said...

Dear Unni,
Good Morning!
Days have passed and turned to months!
But there is no new post in your site!
A talented and brilliant writer should often write,
Expressing the thoughts in the true sense!
Under teh sun,there is no shortage for the theme,
Come out of the hide out,
And today is the best day,
As you are enjoying the holiday!:)
Waiting to see your update,
By the twilight of the day,
You have vast and rich experiences,
After a long holiday!:)
Wishing you a beautiful and creative day,

Dear Unni,
Good Evening!
I came with my third comment to share some latest news.
Final arguments in Kasab's case to begin on March,9th in a special court in Mumbai.The prosecution is expected to focus on countering the stand taken by him that he is not a terrorist and was being framed by police.
You know what Unni,really interesting we have a beach in Kasargod named Kasaba.The fisherfolk women fight against their men taking liqueur.
By the way,did you wish the special woman of your life,Happy Women's Day?
The Proud Woman,
