Followed by the Bastille Day tragedy that shook the world, was yet another case of honour killing – that of Pakistani model Qandeel Baloch. Several celebrities have been expressing their concern over the constant increase of crime. Similarly, hinting at the increasing number of such disturbing incidents, Amitabh Bachchan too took to his blog to share his thoughts about the same.
“Many afternoons evenings and nights did one spend on the walks by the inked sea at this Promenade .. today one gets up with a heavy heart to hear and see its destruction and the trauma it undergoes .. No words can even begin their journey to describe such devastation and remorse .. can we not just sit and talk it out and stop .. !!” He further added, “We sit and we talk and contemplate and discuss and ponder ..but nothing comes of it in any concrete conclusion .. one can only sit back and pray that there be happiness and laughter about, instead of the horrific events that unfold each hour almost .. There is a paucity of thought today .. there is a paucity of expressive description and a paucity of understanding .. the how and why come forward with some hope, but fall back destroyed by the inability to find suitable response .. Unexpected endings are a curse .. is this what they that suffered ever imagine ..? I would think not .. endings are a completion of life .. can not the Giver of Life decide that for us in a more civil manner .. We pray ..”
