I really am in a state of shock now. I called my mom for the routine evening talk and she told me that they were caught in the Shimoga riots yesterday while coming back from Manipal. They had to stay inside for 6 hours and then return to Bhadravati at 10 PM, to avoid the mobs.
Being thousands of miles away, I was shaken hearing this. Its true that it hits you hard when you experience it and when the people you dearly love are part of it!
Will there ever be peace?
