Sides - 77 Fiction

Note:- 77 Fiction infers to fictional writings bounded to a maximum of 77 words.

Sides

As the police caught the real culprit,they released him after seven days of brutal torture for being a suspect.....

He was subjected to harsh and cruel treatment in all the possible ways....

Even his finger couldn't touch his own body....
He could hardly move. It was tough even to utter a word properly....

His pain reflected in the tears of his mother's eyes....
Including his innocence, nothing mattered to the police, except his name ..... Anwar

PS : Inspite of writing and reading many such incidents, i could not stop myself from raking it up again due to the ongoing operations in red alerted Hyderabad since a week .

A sad reality... very well portrayed... even today after the verdict for Kasab, and the 2 indian accused has been delivered... people r saying that the indians were aquitted because the prosecution didnt build a strong case and not because they may actually be innocent...

Cheers!
Tavish

@ Tavish...
Yes, you are correct. The system is entangled in the web of sub systems that it ceased to retain its original character and gradually has lost to numerous external factors in the name of democracy....
Thanks for the feedback buddy :)

Mahesh Kalaal said...

@ Beyond Horizon...
Thanks for the feedback...yes, they have been put on back burner for the interests of few elite people in the society

@ Visbhushan...
Welcome to wisdomism...
Yea, my name is khan is happening all over the world, not just religion but region, culture and race are the major parameters of bias and prejudice ...
Thanks for the pat :)

Reality bites... sad but true :(

P.S. I noticed Tavish has mentioned re: Kasab's case.

Do you think 26/11 was just an act of terror... or do you think it was a part of a larger gameplan... ??? I feel it was the latter. 9/11 has been milked for all it was worth. The 'Big O' has not been traced (if at all he was supposed to be traced, that is). He cannot be declared 'alt+cntrl+del' either... until another 'Big O' has been 'created'. 'They' certainly tried to build up 'Mehsud'... and link him to the 'Big O'... but that did not work out... yet.

So, the 'charade' continues. Another 'Big O' has declared a shift in policy... and coined the term 'Af-Pak'. So, now we have this so-called 'War on Terror' squarely shifted to the subcontinent. Smart move! *sarcastic laugh* Iraq will take a backseat for the time being. To be resurrected after 4-8 years. Just as Afghanistan has been taken out of the 'deep freezer' and brought back into the limelight after some 7-8 years. To borrow a phrase from a certain legendary figure... "Elementary, my dear Watson!"

@ Roshmi...
There you are...comprehensive rational analysis...with all the ammunition the topic needs to dig the hidden worms..... Wisdomism is in waiting for such responses since months. Am glad tat you made these points. Thanks buddy :)

The international, national political and business equations camouflaged by nationalism and sub nationalism with the help of manipulations of corporate media makes this world a huge drama.

These are things i read and reread in all those days of my work on terrorism. I am no more into this. I am done with concrete things and as of now raking few abstractions.

I do agree with every word you analyzed.

I guess you are an apt and adept in dealing such things with the required huge database and references....I would like to read more if you take up these things in your style. What say buddy ?

Roshmi Sinha said...

Hey! What do you think... my last 2 posts were about??? Plain politics or pak politics or some book filled with untruths and half-truths... billed as a 'must read'... ???

No Sir. They were much more than that... I have given some background and some names... some reading between the lines need to be done.

Why do you think this book and its author are given such huge publicity... when she is a mere nobody? Why is she given so much exposure by the western media and press as well as thinktanks? Why is she being introduced to policy makers in the west?

What do you think about the timing of the book? What are your thoughts re: the political and strategic gameplan that gets played out through something as innocuous as books?

Why did the Indian media too fall in line... and ask her soft Qs... designed mainly to reinforce the contents of the book? They never mentioned anything regarding her father's terrorist activities, hijacking planes... or his links to the original Mrs G?

What do you think about this new term 'Af-Pak'? And how do you think the effort to build up a certain Mehsud and link him to Al-Quaida was done?

Whether one agrees with her or not... Benazir is an imp figure in history and one of the foremost characters in Islam. She has paid the price for challenging patriarchy, for having married a man dubbed as "low born" or from the so-called "lower caste" in a deeply feudal, casteist and clanish society. For having made him the leader of the largest party of that country... by virtue of which today he is the first citizen. And much more...

Why is all that and much more being forcibly ignored and 'dynasty' being harped on... when there is no 'dynasty'? Benazir herself is the architect of the Bhutto legacy and the brand. Her party is a matrilineal line. Can you imagine the implications of her actions vis-a-vis Islam and not just Pak society?

Plus much more... Watch out for my subsequent posts... which will be up soon.

Would be keen to hear your views...


P.S. Thanks for the compliment. Very kind of you... and I'm flattered :)

@Roshmi...

Yes ma'm ... we are on the same track. I am referring to your previous posts which said many unsaid things...and yes i did read between the lines as it is one of my favorite topics in subcontinent.

I got exactly what you meant and what has been exactly happening all these years through your posts and hence i am asking you write more. I mean you gave me a feast, i need jumbo pack. .... Yes, rake the worms of corporates, capitalists and pseudo-nationalists at a broader range....international level.... bring out the much fabricated networks that manage the current world. Shake the foundations of Capitalism. In fact unmask all the isms that are using common man as a machinery to reach their ends.

Lets say a big NO to isms.

I said very less than what your posts deserved. You provide a bog canvas to evaluate various aspects of the topic. I could feel the hard work you do behind every post. I always admire the comprehensiveness and rationality in your posts.

I could empathize with your posts as my earlier blog used to be in similar fashion and domains, but due to some reasons i couldn't connect to common man in my posts and hence am into abstraction now.

Anyway, am hungry and am waiting for the coming posts....
Keep analyzing and synthesizing..

@ Mahesh

~ Utmost an apt timming to write such a brewing issue post, something that is being reflected at almost ever corner of this earth...call it India or Abroad!!

~So well written that I could almost feel or see the pain in words! I liked the line.."Even his finger couldn't touch his own body....", Perhaps in such a condition..nor will the loving caring mother wil be able to touch her son's stained, tanned, pained body...!

WellDone buddy!
~Keep the Spark ALive..

sushobhan roy said...

you have driven home the point buddy..:)

Only the name matters.. I agree.. :(

Mahesh Kalaal said...

@ Rachana...
thanks for choosing the second best line of my post, and the succeeding point which reflects the pain in a more magnified way ...
Yes, it is happening every in corner of the world coz of cooked prejudices and vested bias...
Thanks for the pat buddy :)

@ Sushobhan...
Yea...exactly. Identity of a person dominates the person itself most of the times and in the era of globalization its impact is more than what we perceive .
Thanks buddy :)

A sad reality powerfully expressed.
Thumbs Up for the story and Thumbs Down for the reality!!

Mahesh Kalaal said...

@ Shilpa Garg...
Yes, indeed a sad and undeniable happening reality to camouflage the system's failure and inability to deal with the external threats ...
Apt response ...

geeta said...

Such brutality....Leave apart the politics of casteism involved(since I am a dumbo to analyse this situation from the aspect of politics)... my question is --Is there even a pinch of humanity left in human beings or what should I say we relate humanity with animals nowadays....

Just because his name was Anwar...ridiculous
"Naam mein kya rakha hai,Insaan ko pehchaano"

Mahesh Kalaal said...

@ Geeta,
You have aptly said "Naam mein kya rakha hai"...
There are many Anwar bhais and Muujeeb miyas who are easy targets in this prejudices game of politics...
Humanity has been manipulated in the name of many vested and selfish isms since ages and the victim is the common man for generations...
