There was chill in the air but as sun was up it seemed alright. So I thought of visiting a famous temple about 2 kms away from our house to stabilize my upset mind. While walking a lot went through my mind. I remembered when my children were born. How much we cared for them in their childhood making sure no harm came their way! How we spent sleepless night if any of them was sick! During their schooling and college days how we made sacrifices to ensure that they did not have any shortage! How happy we had been when they were married! Grandchildren brought new meaning to our lives. I was lost in my past world and did not realize that I was close to the temple. The sun had risen to noon height. Still reliving my past, my mind suddenly posed question why is someone bursting crackers? It is not any festival today. And why are people running helter- skelter tripping over each other? Why have vehicle suddenly started speeding up? Why is someone throwing pebbles on my back so hard? It is hurting. Why am I feeling weak? It is so difficult to take another step. Why is my back feeling so wet? Why am I stumbling? Why can I not see? Why is it becoming so dark at noon time?
PS : This is my attempt to show what could be the last thoughts of a terrorist attack victim who's mind was wholly occupied with his own world.
