The farce behind 'Salaam Bombay'


In some family homes tonight will be the darkest;
taking away someones everything;
footsteps that stepped out of doors, never to return;
small cherished hopes that returned home every evening will now perhaps always remain dream like memories;
"numbers" shall be read out, casualties forgotten;
just like always superficial sympathies will pour in...

In some family homes tonight will be the darkest;
a heartless rainy evening would have changed everything;
And soon one day when we will have new reasons for headlines, somewhere wrapped in the folds of newspapers shall be stories covering this night
of peoples gruesome ends and some painful beginnings...
