I am just becoming more hysterical and sensitive and hence thinking about it. But feel free to condemn me, if the title isn't the truth.
Especially, when you consider what happened in Syria.
Imagine a father, holding his two 9 month old twin babies with foams in their mouth and dead in matter of minutes. Now that I am a father of a 1 year old, I can really feel the anguish that this father would have gone through.
I could not have related to it as much, as I do now and suddenly feel that the shadow of the devil grew longer.
How can any one justify? Everything is fair in love and war?? and infants dying is also fair!!!
I guess then fairness has suddenly taken a darker complexion. Does any one even care.. Ofcourse time is terrible that it lets every one ignore the pain of the casualty.
The picture of the father is depicted all across. The incident happened just a few days ago, when the Syrian Govt. dropped a chemical bomb on the rebel's location. When the bomb fell, the father holding his both twins smelled something bad, and gave them to his wife and asked them to leave. He went and was searching for his other family members, who are all found to be dead with foams coming from the mouth.
When he came back he found his wife and his twin kids lying idle on the floor. He couldn't look at them longer as he also fell ill. What would the mother have been going through the instances just before her death.
She'd have seen her twins dying in her own hands. The agony of the situation is unimaginable. If someone does a postmortem on the mother's cause of death, I bet it can be attributed more to the agony of seeing her kids die than the actual impact of the chemical.
Why am I even deliberating this.. Dunno, I feel more pained, terrible and wanting to feel saddened further... may be that's the only way I can be a part of the sorrow that the couple would have gone through.
I do want to interact once with the pilot who is understood to have dropped this weapon. What would be going through his mind.
I wasn't present when the Hiroshima and Nagasaki landed, may be the pilot then, was dreaming about ending the war or may be he didnt have any clue about the impact that it was gonna create..or may be ..
see, this is why I love & hate time .. we know that the impact of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was far worse than this, but we seem to believe that any event that has happened now carries a far greater impact than something that happened in history ..
hence, I am willing to give some neutral opinion towards the nuclear D day than what happened last week in Syria. We are ruthless as is time.
Will Fairness in war ever receive a genuine fair cream.
