26/11 Mumbai Attacks- Lest We Forget.

Most of us will start and carry on with our normal routine today.
Breakfast, picking up kids from school, lectures, meetings, and other trivial things. All of us will go through the day like it’s any other usual one. All of us, except those who will have to feel the numbing pain of yet another year that has gone by. Another year since the day they lost their loved ones, since the nights started getting longer and days all the more merciless, since Mumbai wept.
Eight years ago, a small group of terrorists tried to damage us. They came to our country with guns and grenades and decided to end innocent lives. One hundred and sixty six people died, more than hundred were injured and thousands of homes were destroyed. Yes, they succeeded.

We all witnessed the anguish, pain and frustration of the citizens of this nations, and the eerie silence that this incident left behind.
But what we overlooked was how fast we picked ourselves up and moved ahead. Sure, justice took time, but it came to us at last. Amidst the chaos and conflict, we missed out on how beautifully the entire nation came together for the people who were shaken by this attack and how calmly we helped them gather the pieces of their shattered lives and build it up again from scratch. 26/11 not only affected Mumbai, but India, as a whole. We held unknown hands, wiped uncountable tears and helped heal bitter wounds. The terrorists succeeded, but somehow our spirit over powered them.

26/11 gave us something beautiful. Unity. It taught us how to feel another person’s pain as tears flown for the departed souls and candles burned in their memory. They tried to break us down, but we stood up stronger than ever.
Here’s to the undying spirit of Mumbai and it’s people. Because broken cities do not produce broken people. They sustain strength and radiate courage. We feel you, and we are with you. In this time of distress, we all are with you.
Fight harder, love stronger and be better!
