Just One Wrong Too Many

Rating: 5.0
Many wrongs may go unaccounted for,
But just one other may be one too many.
One bold sacrifice can stop many
Extra judicial killings,
As that of Major Sinha's.
One silent death in a state prison
Can stop many torturous murders
As that of Mushtaq Ahmed's.

Just one spark can ignite
A huge forest fire,
That would devour the woodlands
To ashes.

The dark room's door is now a little ajar,
Letting only some rays in.
The rays represent the Sun
Which indeed seems not afar;
The doors will soon open apart
And allow the light of truth to rush in.

Major Sinha (Retired) was killed by the Police without provocation. It aroused public agitation and as a result, some guilty Police personnel were arrested and prosecuted. They are under trial now. Mushtaq Ahmed was killed in state custody at a high security prison. He was a freelance writer and photographer. His death has sparked off public agitation under which the country is reeling now.

Let the truth be heard without further loss of life. We know it comes out eventually.

Yes i agree with you completely. One bold step is needed to make the blind see sgsin. Similar to the phenomenon, as you do mathematics and commit same mistakes over and over again, one hit on head is enough to detect this gap and bring you back on track.

Part 2: "who will guard the guards " is the moot question. Most pertinent writing, Sir. Please continue to write to air the will of the common man and air his thoughts. Billions share your concern. Five stars.
