Only in India …and (Only in India…)

Only in India you will see these sorts of affinity and unanimity. Irrespective of the ethnic or spiritual proclivities, we can see the whole nation stands together when there is a serious cause.

Two weeks before, the Blasts in Mumbai had affirmed this fact to a glorious extent. The undivided efforts and deportment of the whole inhabitants of Mumbai had zoomed out the awful impact of terrorism. The whole India prayed together.

In the last two days, yet again the whole nation stood awake in prayers and caring for the life of a cute boy namely, Prince. The poor lad of six years had fallen into a 50-feet pit and had remained trapped there for nearly 50 hours.


The whole country gone mad, once the news blown out. For two days they forgot themselves and kept praying for the sudden emergence of the unfortunate boy. They stumbled wherever they came across a shrine, without looking at the visage or name of the God they are praying to, but just praying from the heart of their hearts for the well sake of the boy.

I must tell this in Mumbai Blog because Mumbai was in the bead of tears, almost for the whole two days. And my words take utmost confidence from my personal experience itself. In my home also, my aunty was praying throughout.

In front of the temples I have seen all sorts of people praying wholeheartedly. What a great sight of unity! Even if where lies Kurukshetra and where Mumbai?

And he got saved! Princely.


The breathtaking efforts of the soldiers, fire crew and the natives of Kurukshetra had raised the boy from the clutches of darkness. To a new life.

Once again, only in India, you will see this unity. On the other side, perhaps only in India, you would see these kinds of mishaps too. Irresponsibility and absence of professionalism is the main cause of these adversities.

Otherwise a pit of nearly 30 ft is not covered up for days.. How come?

Even in the might of great unity, we need to brood over these facts!

    As far as my opinion is concerned, all the news channels were trying to cash in on the plight of a poor boy. Their concern was not his wellbeing but TRP. Read my views here
