It needs special mention…

March 23, 2009

When I was a kid I was so fond of listening to the 21 top’on ki salami and I would always miss it because both on 23rd March and 14th August I’d be sleeping besides the firing sound would be barely audible.

But today while I was peacefully asleep I heard a loud bang. The sort when the rocket or bomb explodes. I woke up thinking that was another bomb or something. But then one blast followed another and I got it what it was. I am wondering about one thing where the hell they did this salami because I have never heard such loud sound ever.

I was half asleep, half awake and I counted 21 fires. Wow, it came at the time when I don’t want to listen to any such boom anymore. Irony! 😛

BMK you are right, might be directed towards Mangal Bagah as well, hehehehehehe 🙂

    LOL … my sis who lives in Peshawar had dreams of evacuating a bus full of children from terrorists right after these 21 bangs 😉

    I will admit I have no idea what Peshawar is like. What friends tell me is a cooked up version that I’m not willing to believe. I hope it has some semblance of normalcy and sanity given the unrest going on around it.

    I think the security issues are the same all across Pakistan. Peshawar is fine… but in today’s time no one can tell what will happen next. Insecurity and uncertainty you know!

    I feel Insecurity and uncertainty in the streets but it is not limited to a particular area. What media paints is a very skewed & devastating picture. And there will always be sanity though numbers may not be encouraging. There’s hope.
