29th October ' 05
The puja festival was just over;
Happiness was still alive;
Days were going fair-
And bees murmur still charmed the hives.
Four days to go to Diwali-
Time was outruning curiosity;
The lights were about to lightened -
But there was a chill of terror with which everyone was frightened.
Delhi blew up in a bigger light!
That fell like a black curtain upon every sight-
The sky was blackened on 29th Oct of date,
Which caused many to meet their early fate.
Oh! God how this came upon?
That blackened the dews still in the lawn;
Great men say you forgive all !!
Then what was the curse that covered hundreds with death shawl?
