Amir


The plane landed,
The sleep  was broken,
Thoughts accelerated,
Grip tightened,
Time to meet the,
people most lovable had come…

The smell was familiar,
people looked alike,
Smile one their faces,
Made him smile..

Reached the immigration counter,
The name was asked,
Amir, he said the third time,
Meanwhile, the luggage was finally found clean..

Excited, he rushed to the arrival terminal,
But, nobody was waiting outside,
He called up home,
But, nobody picked up the phone..

Puzzled, he stood there thinking,
Suddenly, somebody handed him a cell phone,
In a while, the phone started ringing,
He got a message to board a taxi..

He hung up, but the luggage was not there,
Oh! it was already loaded in the cab..
Before he could understand,
The taxi moved…

He used to think,
That man is the master of his destiny,
But, unable to control it now,
He became a slave..

He got the message that,
his family was kidnapped,
and if he didn’t follow the directions,
His family would be dead..

Direction followed,
Many fights won,
Somehow, he executed the task,
and then the final call came..

He was shattered to know,
That hundreds would be killed,
and he would be the only one to blame..
But, to save his loved one, he chose to be defamed..

But,  then he was Amir,
The leader, the pioneer,
He embraced the death,
Saved all of the hundred…

We, the people,
Again proved ourselves naive,
by calling martyr Amir,
An agent of terror…

This is my opinion about the movie, Amir. I watched the movie recently and found it very disturbing that how the life of simple and innocent people can be screwed. Perceptions shouldn’t be made; stereotypes should be rejected; Truth must be found. We are Indians first and we cannot let any psycho attack the integrity of out country.

Cheers!!
