At lunch, a colleague mentioned that she was scared of visiting places like Masjid or Mahim after the riots. She doesn’t get good vibes from these places anymore.
My friend can avoid these places because she lives and works in other ‘safer’ zones. But I wonder about the people living in Masjid or Mahim. They don’t have a choice. If they have to continue to study, live and work in the city, they must integrate into the other areas – the ones with seemingly ‘better’ vibes. The reserve in their hearts notwithstanding.
Yes, some people here don’t have the luxury to feel uncomfortable about things.
