Mumbai blasts

this time around
we have had a lot of angels,
a lot of common people,
people coming up from across the city,
poor people,
slum dwellers,
people from everywhere,
who’ve put behind their religious differences
and who’ve come to help
people affected in the blast.
You know,
I mean,
this is very rare,
like people coming from across religions,
expecially there has been a lot of Hindu-Muslim tension.
But despite that,
you had Muslim men coming and helping Hindu men
who were affected in the blast,
putting all kinds of differences behind them.
