I think this is the first time since I started this blog that I have something that I want to write about, but don't know what to write about it. On Friday, when I watched A Wednesday with my team, I didn't find reason enough to write about that movie here because I thought it was only fairly good, nothing too great. The only good thing about it was the unexpected twist. Today Naseeruddin Shah's words are repeatedly resounding in my mind. This evening my parents were right next to Ghaffar Market when the first of a series of explosions terrorised this city. I can hear Naseer's question again and again - should we wait until one of our loved ones becomes a victim of an incident like this before we do something about it? I can still feel a lot of the uneasiness I felt in the few minutes that passed after we heard about the blasts and before we could get through to our parents and make sure they were okay. I'm not sure why I'm still uneasy. I'm not sure what I want to write here. It's all so unnerving. So scary.
