Remembering 26111.jpg
  This day will remain deeply etched
In the minds of the citizens of Mumbai
It is unforgettable for reasons that
Are really best forgotten-
It was the day when terrorism
Like lightening struck the towers
Of some of the city’s prize monuments
Engulfing them in flames while
The sounds of thunder reverberated
From deep within shaking the faith
And the confidence of the city and the nation
People just ran helter skelter as if possessed
No place seemed safe on that fateful day
Red rivulets trailed behind the ambulances
As they made their way to the hospitals
Carrying the remains of the massacred -
Victims of the terrorists’ brutality and bullets
The targeted buildings and areas kept
Billowing thick black smoke and red flames
Into the atmosphere for seventy-two hours
Until the saviors descended sliding down
Ropes suspended in mid air from helicopters
To rescue the hostages from the throes of death
And their ordeal stage managed by their captors
But the pall of gloom remained over the city for days
As it mourned its dead and saluted its heroes
