On Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s birth anniversary, who died protecting his fellow commando and countrymen, an ode to the spirit of Mumbai. And Major Unni’s courage.
Thank You Sir, you continue to inspire.
Bullet shells all around
Blood stained walls stifling shouts and screams
Telling stories of unheard prayers and distant dreams.
Every eye bleeds a tear
Every soul houses a fear
Every hope now broken and bereaved
Every heart now incorrigibly aggrieved.
This pain would remain for years to come
Rendering the city temporarily numb
But the spirit of Mumbai refuses to die
It remains sacrosanct after the ordeals gone by.
