Dear Terrorist,

Have you ever tried bringing a smile on someone's face? I have and believe me there's nothing in this world that gives more satisfaction than this. Be it giving a rikshawwala an extra 20 bucks because he had asked for little less than others being new to the city, or helping a small girl getting that flower she is trying to reach from past few min, or feeding a small hungry child a parantha that you would have thrown otherwise.

How can you derive satisfaction from harming others, killing others. Nothing can justify the tears of a mother who has lost her small child in front of her eyes, the tears of a new bride who lost her husband, the tears of an old man who lost his only hope.

Just try bringing smile to someone's face once and see if that brings more satisfaction or harming people for some reason unknown.

Also reminds me of a nice poem...

Where The Mind is Without Fear

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls

Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit

Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake

"Dear terrorist" reveals the sad heart of a sensetive person who dreams of living in a world where small charity brings bg smiles for others. A terrorist is supposed to be a machine devoid of all human emotions. As terrorism spreads humanty suffers. The thought to live in an ideal world has been provoked by an act of terrorism. But dehumanisation prevails in some other areas also. The writer raises thoughts about throwing lights on those areas also.
