On the eve of coming Independence day, I had planned to write about the
achievements of our country and feel pride in mentioning about it…but the deathtoll of innocent infants & kids who did not even get the opportunity to recognize
their parents who brought them into this world after toiling hard with
pregnancy blues, rising to 70 plus…did not give me courage to scribble about
the goodness of India.

There are valid reasons to be proud of but this setback of
massacre affected me to such an extent that all the best efforts vanished from
my mind and I am left sad and numb.

Loss of one life stirs us so much and subjugates distress to
such level that we are not in a position to think of something else and this
huge loss is indigestible.

When I think of it, I get restless, so well imagine the
blank eyes of more than 70 odd pairs who lost their bundle of joy in seconds.

When a woman becomes a mother, she is reborn and she
conquers all pain just to hold her flesh in her own hands.

All her dreams that she day dreamed throughout nine months
got washed off leaving her in pain…the loss is irreparable…Reason

Even it is the defeat of the State & Central government
who is ignorant of the issues flaring in the hospital running under their nose.

Who cares?

The battle goes on for Ram Mandir and killing of cows. The
people join the protest for these flimsy causes but where is the protest today
for the innocent lives that have been butchered in full public view.

People visit hospital with a faith to be blessed with good
health but this hospital of Gorakhpur turned to be butcher house for the
parents who lost their loved ones.

The literacy rate has flared up, awareness is around but the
greed is at its height to grab more & more killing the throats of humanity.

I am not convinced that the kids have succumbed in unavailability
of oxygen.

Can anyone answer me?

Were all the kids hospitalized on Oxygen?

There is something more in the backdrop.

The reality is trapped.

I feel there might be issues in the supply of medicines
administered to the patients admitted which has caused so many deaths.

Authorities, wake up and search the real cause.

I know the lives that are gone cannot come back but as a
human think how many lives got roped in dark….think about the poor parents.

How they will come to terms and lead a normal life?

Deaths do happen every day, some lose lives naturally, few
in accidents and calamities but this tragedy has instilled fear in the minds of
people and people will lose faith in medical fraternity and hospital

I know investigations won’t bring back the lives that
vanished but at least the culprits will come to light and the reason of

The people who have erred need to be booked under law under
the fast track court.

I would request all my countrymen to join the league of protest
so that this act is not repeated again in our country.

All our shows and achievements went underground in the wake
of this dreaded incident.

My prayers for the departed lovely and innocent souls and
wish that God gives courage to the bereaved parents to bear the loss.

It’s easy to say but in practice…it is the most
difficult task.


Disclaimer:  It is my sole view and I haven’t followed any statistics regarding figures. watching the news and reading the news left me bewildered and I penned down my raw thoughts.


  • It was a shameful day for India, and the bigger shame is the attempt to politicise it by 'leaders' of all stripes. Such a tragedy on the eve of 70 years of Independence.

  • it's a shocking news… I am heartbroken by the loss of all the parents… There are no words to describe this neglect and loss. I hope all the culprits are punished.

  • This was such a bad news! I was aware unless I was tagged by you! Just wanted as having a busy day!
    Really at a loss of words for the families 🙁

  • It was a dark day and truly heart-wrenching.It is high time we start spending more on healthcare and less on MP's salaries

  • 70 children die a pointless death on the eve of 70th year of Indian Independance and our politicians are brazen over the entire issue. From the PM to the CM – all have declined responsibility and even gagged the media on it. Shame of the so called journos who have played down this gross tragedy while they glofify other trivial issues!!

  • A tragedy .Plus you are right the politicians are to blame.They know everything and blame everyone but themselves.Heartbreaking

  • First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos! paypal account login
