SAVIOUR OR DESTROYER ???


This face speaks.....
Of the immense potential the new generation has.A gruesome end to a fairytale,as I put it.
Every girl is a fairy,a princess in her home.Irrespective of all differences,be it personal or socio-economic,every child is special.Be it Aarushi or Asif or next door Chintoo,all are the soul of their parents.What happened with Aarushi is known to everyone..
anyone who watches satellite television is a mute spectator to the great fiasco created by the media and police over the death of a girl,belonging to an upper-middle class family of Noida.The way the "facts" were framed,the police' theories regarding the murder and above all,charging the father made me angry.I did not write about her before because I found it hard to believe that a father(that too in medical profession,where life is a valued possession) could ever kill his daughter in a fit of rage.
The media brought several false notions about Aarushi's family which could severely impair their social life.Even relatives and friends would be ashamed to be associated with the family in any way.
The less said about the police,the better.It acted in an irresponsible way- indulged in character killing of the victim-used "honour killing" theory to defame the family.The actual mystery may never unveil now. What happened that fateful night is still in shrouds.
I'm ashamed to live in a country where police,the supposed saviour of people and media,the fourth pillar of democracy - take shortcuts to gain limelight.

First, thankyou for visiting my blog. I really appreciate it.

WOW....INTENSE....AMAZINGLY DEEP....AND STRONG! I absolutely agree wih every word that you just wrote in there....it is so unfair of the media to blow news so much out of proportion. Aarushi's case was taken really badly....and yes, the worst part was his father being accused of her murder....it is hard to believe that the police can do sumthing like that without proper evidence!

Loved the way you quoted everything.

P.S: Blog Rolled You By the way!!!!

Yah, what media does is give popularity to whatever they think can catch the audience, no matter how vulgar it is

Sometimes the media glamourises the gruelest of crimes, it makes me sad. Aarushi's death was very sad, the fact that the case has been shut without an answer makes it sadder.
(Thanks for the birthday wishes, blogrolling you!)

Happened to stumble across your blog after I saw the comment on my blog.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
I kind of stopped blogging after that post which you read.
Will start composing again in the coming week.

And coming to your topic, I am afraid to tell this, but Indian police is considered to be the second best in world after Swiss Guard in solving cases. I am not sure about this though. It might be because that our police find the real culprits real soon or fake someone as the culprit.

They find ways to tackle a situation. Its always the media. To sustain the pressure from media and stabilize the situation, police come up with different stories

Thanx rocky 4 visiting my blog.and thanx 4 caring to post a comment.I was disgusted to see how blatantly the victim's was treated by state police as well as the media.So I wrote about it when the case was closed.If Indian police in 2nd best,God save the other countries..
Rocky said…
That's very true Anwesa.

Ayushi said…
tnx for visiting the crazy me...but i assure u I'm never permanently that high ;)
What happened to d family is indeed a shame....innocent lives spoilt...another dark spot for the police
kill a daughter so brutally in a fit of 'rage' and rage over what? ...were all the bunch of those pigs(police) mad? i really dont know...with the kind of theory they made up, one would be inclined to feel they were suffering acutely from mental illness!
ANWESA said…
Thanks Ayushi for saying ur mind.I am thinking on the same lines.(I think we share the same vibes on a personal level,especially on issues like this).the Noida police' theory on the murder sounded like a D grade bollywood flick.
Rakesh said…
i guess the arushi case was spoilt by media...
They just for getting their TRP rating high came out with all kinda false ideas....
Media i guess have forgotten why they exist and wat their role is...
Pooja said…
dese dayz media cares abt TRP not d truth...once media was d most reliable source but now it's all abt gossip...

WAITING FOR YOU

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ?

I CANNOT REMEMBER MY MOTHER ~ Rabindranath Tagore

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.


I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.


I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.
