26/11/08 Never forget this day

I had written this when I was 15, when the Mumbai attacks happened. 26nov2008
khoon hua? kiska?
kyun karein hum kuch?
kya tha woh koi apna?
hum hi kyun iske khilaaf awaaz uthayein?
hum hi kyun apni jaan gawayein?
bhaarat maata hai nyari
par hamaari jaan hai zyaada pyaari
police kar rahi hai apna kaam
aur neta kar rahe hain aaraam hi aaraam
aatankiyon ka kaatilaana chehera
uss par hai maasumiyat ka pehera
ek taraf hain hazaaron laashein
toh doosri taraf hai netaaon ki aishein
khoon ki nadiyan behene lage
aur dukh mein baadal rone lage
khoon ki cheetein hum par nahi pade
kyun hum aatankwaad se lade?
par kisi na kisi ko iske khilaaf bolna hoga
jo nahi khula hai uss raaz ko kholna hoga
aawaaz nahi talwar uthao
aur iss atankwaad ko jad se mitao.
