Forgive us!

Jai Guru Deva

My deepest condolences to the affected families in possibly the worst attack on humanity. People witnessed 9/11 and moved on, People suffered 26/11 and moved on; But this is something very very difficult to move on. For a long long time to come this will remain as the haunting memory to the collective conscience of humanity. I cant help but beg for the forgiveness of the children who had to face such a wrath of fate for no fault of theirs.
