Monologues #12

Another monologue from Greys! Hope you like it 🙂

Season 10.

Sometimes you just need to get out of town, get a new perspective. But you can’t always see that you need a new perspective because well, you need a new perspective to be able to see that. It’s complicated.
Open your eyes. What do you see? More possibilities? Does your new view give you more hope? That’s the goal. Although, it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes a shift in perspective just makes you see what you’ve lost.

#PrayForPeshawar

B4_kk5sCcAAGL-i

Hi. I am a 20 year old Hindu girl from India who would want to talk about the recent attacks on 16th December 2014 in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Firstly, “INNALILAHI WA INNA ILAYHI RAJIOON” to the little bundles of joy those are now deceased. May Allah (swt) take good care of them in Jannah.

16th December will now be considered a black day both in India and Pakistan for the rest of forever.

2 years back on this ill-fated day, the Nirbhaya/Damini rape case occurred in New Delhi and it was an act of shame by few men who wanted mere pleasure. The girl died few days later at a hospital as she succumbed to her fatal wounds cause by those men.

2 years later,

One wanted to become a Doctor, one maybe a Lawyer. But after 10:45AM all those dreams were killed and so were those 131 children.

Yesterday again was an act of revenge by the so called Tehreek-e-Taliban on innocent children in Peshawar which is situated in Pakistan. Approximately 141 people passed away and out of them were 132 children and few teachers including the Headmistress who gave her life trying to save those helpless kids.

WHY STUDENTS? WHY CHILDREN? What have innocent children done to you and your families? Did children come and shoot at you? Did they wish ill upon you? Chanting “Allahu Akbar” right before shooting children does NOT make you human. Forcing children to see their own teachers’ burn in front of them does NOT make you human. This isn’t revenge. This is an understatement.

They were innocent little souls who had no idea they would be killed within minutes at their own school. A place where a child goes to meet his friends, to study, to learn something new, to have fun and enjoy. A school is not a war-zone, but you terrorists have made it one. A set of 2 people come together in unity and give birth to the future generation. That future generation is expected to grow and make their parents proud. Sadly, that hasn’t happened in this Army Public School.

Animals have a reason to kill. It may be for food or to protect themselves. People killing children are beyond words can define. It’s true that humanity is lost the minute people start a protest that says killing children is wrong.

The attack by the Taliban was in retaliation for an ongoing Pakistan Army operation against them and its allies in the North Waziristan tribal area. The TTP (Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan) said many of their family members had been killed in the campaign, and said the attack on the school was in revenge for those deaths.

The time line of the attack goes as follows:

  1. 05:30 GMT – Attack beganwhen a group of seven attackers, reportedly in military uniforms, entered the school.
  2. 07:11 GMT – TTP claims The gunmen were reportedly under orders to shoot older students.
  3. 07:25 GMT – Evacuation of children and teachers begins with a rescue process underway. Nearby schools start closing down.
  4. 10:47 GMT – Reports sayas many as 10 loud explosions heard at the school. Reporters say the operation underway is reaching a climax.
  5. 12:35 GMT – Eleven more teachers rescued from the school.
  6. 13:14 GMT – Another injured child succumbs to his wounds at Leady Reading Hospital in Peshawar, raising the death toll to 131.
  7. 14:12 GMT – Last gunman killed. Operation over.

If anyone from Pakistan would be reading this, I, Shreya Roy would like to send my heartfelt condolences to you people and the parents of the deceased in Pakistan all the way from Hyderabad, India. The beautiful country that have been shamed by people such as these terrorists, I ask you, the general public, to raise your voice. Raise your voice against the Government and demand answers for the souls of those departed. Blood is red for a person who dies on this side of the border or on the other side. A child’s blood is the purest and that has been shed in the most disgusting and inhumane way possible. I only hope for peace in your country and that can be done by the public speaking up for justice.

Do ask your Government to tighten up security, to remove all these terrorists that hide like foxes all around your beautiful country. I would also like to add, Islam is a beautiful religion. I know this being a Hindu and your fellow neighbour. No one can judge Islam just because there are so many Muslim terror groups out there. Not all Muslims are bad and this should be known that by blaming the wrong people does not help at all. This could be me dying someday, it could be my future children, it could be anyone.

Liebster Award!

Okay so I’ve been nominated by http://imjustadreamur.wordpress.com/ for the Liebster Award for the first time though and thank you SO MUCH for that! 🙂 I’m extremely sorry it’s TOO late though.

I’m assuming there are the rules:

  1. Post the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
  3. Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.
  5. Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.

I’ve technically done 1. and 2. but continuing 2. thank you a lot for nominating me and recognizing my work here! It means a lot to me that someone or anyone takes the time to read my stuff. A thing or two to say bout you, would be that your work is impeccable! It’s so good, simple and natural. Whoever reads this should take their time out to read her out. TBH, it’s worth it.

Okay so now we go to point 3. 11 facts about me? Well there are more than 11 but nevertheless haha!

11 FACTS BOUT MOI

1. I’m a phone addict. I absolutely love my phone. It’s a BlackBerry at present but whatever I do, I should have my phone in my hand at all times. When I’m eating, studying, reading, listening to someone else talk or be it whatever.

2. I’m a very curious person, The minute I hear some news or gossip, I long to know it ASAP. I try out new things just cause everyone’s doing it and then I may move on to some other new thing. So yeah ..

3. I hate falling in to trouble for anything. I love doing shitty stuff but I get a lot of tension when I’m about to get caught. The fear of facing someone screaming at me and stuff literally kills me. This is pretty weird but yeah.

4. I over-think to any extent. I can really waste my entire time thinking what would happen tomorrow and can be immediately be sad about it. The thing may never be possible but it’s already occurred in my brain. Yes.

5. I want to travel to lots of places. I want to see the world. It’s my ultimate dream. I LOVE exploring but that’s not something my parents would let me do. I’ve been to two states in my country (India) illegally without them knowing, so you can imagine how daring I can get just to explore different places hahaha!

6. I under-estimate myself a lot. I feel I cant be better at anything and that I have no skills or qualities. I always wished to be any one else before but I’m getting better at loving who I am and at understanding that to be yourself is the best.

7. I LOVE MUSIC. I can listen to music at any time and any place. Even while studying and concentrating. It calms me down. I don’t have specific genres. I can listen to anything that soothes my mood.

8. I get the worst dreams ever. Seriously. Blood, death, rapes, kidnappings. I freak myself out when I wake up. I wish I knew why I got such dreams but well, it’s a dream.

9. I have issues in saying no to people. I’m always the person who’d do anything for anyone. It’s like the biggest struggle for me. I’m a yes person.

10. I cant express love to my parents. It’s weird. I have quite an amount of Ego & it’s also cause I’m an adopted kid. I can’t really hug them or tell them that I love them. It feels weird. Don’t take me the wrong way, I love them a lot, they know it, but I don’t find it necessary to tell them every other day.

11. I wish to get published on Wikipedia or become famous fr at least a day. I really want that feel for like a while that people know my name and know me cause of something or for something.

OKAY! So finally done with my 11 facts. I could rant more cause I Rant. (geddit?) Hopefully few points do make sense?

So here goes point 4. I’d like to nominate these below mentioned 10 (cause I’m not that famous yet :$) people/bloggers for this award because they’re exceptionally AMAZING and all my readers should seriously check them out.

Monologues #11

Long time no see Monologues! Here’s an old one from our very own favourite Grey’s Anatomy.

Season 1, Episode 8: Save Me

You know how when you were a little kid, and you believed in fairy tales? That fantasy of what your life would be. White dress, Prince Charming, who’d carry you away to a castle on a hill. You’d lie in bed at night and close your eyes, and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close, you could taste them. But eventually, you grow up. One day you open your eyes, and the fairy tale disappears. Most people, turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is… it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely. Because almost everyone still has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they’ll open their eyes, and it will all come true.”

“At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like, one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle… well, it may not be a castle. And, it’s not so important that it’s happy ever after. Just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while… people may even take your breath away.”

Monologues #10

Here’s another Grey’s monologue. Hope you like this one! 🙂

Season 6, Episode 16 : Perfect Little Accident

“No matter how many plans we make or steps we follow, we never know how our day is going to end up. We’d prefer to know, of course, what curve balls will be thrown our way. It’s the accidents that always turn out to be the most interesting parts of our day, the people we never expected to show up, a turn of events we never would have chose for ourselves. All of a sudden you find yourself somewhere you never expected to be and its nice, or it takes some getting used to. Still, maybe you’ll find yourself appreciating it somewhere down the line. So you go to sleep each night thinking about tomorrow, going over your plans, preparing for them, and hoping that whatever accidents come your way will be happy ones.”

Monologues #9

Another late monologue (extremely sorry) from the best TV show ever, Grey’s Anatomy. This is from,

Season 9, Episode 1: Going Going Gone

“They say death is hardest on the living. It’s tough to actually say goodbye. Sometimes it’s impossible. You never really stop feeling the loss. It’s what makes things so bittersweet. We leave little bits of ourselves behind, little reminders, a lifetime of memories, photos, trinkets, things to remember us by… even when we’re gone.”

Depression

If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation. Depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness and loneliness there’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest noblest and best things you will ever do.
