Photobucket had recently made a very dick move by disabling all third-party embedded pics unless I pay $399. I've been blogging for 13 years and have 2000+ embedded pics across 650+ blog posts, which are now all unviewable. I'm working on moving my images to a new host, so until then, please do bear with me if you cannot view any images on my older blog posts.

Chp 195. Blood is spilled - a voice cries out.

Blood is spilled in the land of Peace.
Four innocent lives,
washed away like paper boat against a tempest.


Tonight four families weep in sorrow.
But pray, be strong,
for the whole of Mizoram weeps with you.


My Mizoram - land of such serene tranquility.
And yet today,
the radicals proclaim "T’is only the beginning"!


I wonder where the wind will blow from here.
Will we revert,
to the days when guns were louder than free will?


No, the power of conscience must not falter!
Kindred we are,
and no ethnic differences can refute that claim.


Memories open floodgates of Isaac L.Hmar.
Brutally murdered,
by the very same people with such bloodied hands.


Oh hatred, how quick is your execution.
With a flash,
you've delivered your judgment with no remorse.


Chaos and unrest you spew out like venom.
Mindless violence,
sounds contradictory to the paradise I call “Home”.


Did those four innocents spill blood in vain?
Hell NO!
for the Mizo kindred bond is now stronger than ever!


----


Rest in peace R.Lalrindika, B.Lalchunglura, Lalremthanga and David Rualthankhuma. God bless.

@ banno: You're most welcome to. Things like this happen occasionally in the North-east, but never in Mizoram. We have earned the reputation of being the most peaceful state in the NE, free of any "militant" activities, but the ghastly incident a few days back may change all that... :-(

@ Rini: Thank you for your visit. And I am extremely honored for your kind words given away so generously. I'm glad I could entertain you and hope you continue to visit my blog.

ku Kim, Nice read as usual.

I'm so glad you chose to immortalise these men here. How vile terrorists are!

One little thing. Instead of "Did those four innocent bloods spill in vain?" you might want to change that to "Did those four innocents spill blood in vain?" Blood being an uncountable noun...

That was real shocking and shattering news from 'most peaceful state in the northeast'. All who care for Mizoram need to pray and work for its peace. Your poem has aptly expressed the sentiment of all of us. Well done.
