The revelation!

I was hiding again. Getting up in the morning, doing the house chores, clean, clean, clean n clean again....cook something, then lie on the couch, lie on the bed in guest room, lie on the bed in the bedroom, lie on the carpet in front of the television, climb back on the couch n lie there. Hiding, not facing people. why?

No clue!!!

It was just as if something was going to happen....my heart counting beats to the moment when the glass walls will shatter.....Its better this way I keep telling myself and keep my head buried. Allah Rehem....I see massacres in Burma, I hear screams of Palestinian children, rehem, rehem... mourning voices chase me wherever I go....they become so loud that I lose my words, my senses at times....

I keep on having visions of  blood dripping from Qaddafi's  face..I don't recognize this man, I tell myself.... My television shouts Egypt , Iran all day..shows blood drained faces of people in Syria rehem malik rehem....I hear U.S threatening action against Iran, hear NATO warnings for Syria, U.K sponsoring non -lethal weapons to Syrian opposition, still my glass walls are intact.

I see tanks moving, drones on stand by. The shadow of death is lingering outside my windows, devouring everything with each passing moment....and the mourning voices have started again, someone save me from them...I shout and bury my face harder in the pillows. 

Now I'm afraid everything will fall apart but my glass walls will remain standing.....

  3. I am told by news that they don't belong in Burma, they are intruders.

    The people I know from Assam say that Bengladeshis come across the river and start living on their bordering river banks eventually monopolising fishing industry in those regions which is a major livelihood of people there. Gradually after some political games in which they collectively agree to vote for some party, that party arange for their voter listing and hence citizenship. People there are frustated and small incidents lead to violence.

    I don't know about Palestine much. I still wonder why they hate Iran so much. Perhaps the sour memories of Ottoman rule is still making the west fear any Muslim power.

    I am also scared as much as you are. I am scared of losing my language, nationality, my freedom of faith, my life, security ... I produce a part of those fears and I am affected by what others make up others.

    1. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/did-ahmadinejad-really-say-israel-should-be-wiped-off-the-map/2011/10/04/gIQABJIKML_blog.html

      There seems to be a desire in Iran to "Wipe out Israel" irrespective of which leader voiced it and how... probably that is why US too is pissed at Iran ... I guess Jews are not safe anywhere else than in Israel, even with such threats... given their history of holocaust... Now, funny thing is that Iran is even denying Holocaust.... I will have to say that world is indeed funny... the way some popular leaders are either master liers or schrezophrenic...

      But, the occupation of palestine seems wrong... equally wrong is the pln of Palestinian Arabs to throw the Jews into sea... Will Palestinians really take rest if they get their Palestine back?

      I feel that all the problems are created by those people, who are every where but still seems to be in higher number among some groups, who want to control the world or atleast as much as they can, exclusively and not incusively.
