Alice didn’t really go to Wonderland

Searching for answers… and some questions too

Citizen war diary April 25, 2012 : Flashback

I write this with a slightly stubbed out pencil. Lead is in short supply. In fact there’s a shortage of everything. I tried to get hold of some eggs today – a slightly moulded one which had the look of being preserved for far too long was all I could get. It cost me Ten bullets. The universal currency, is what will save your life – and take another’s.
The war began November 29, 2009.

Actually it had been going on for over 60 years with some bigger fist-fights in the middle. This time everyone had the bomb. So numerical superiority didn’t count for much. The time for a boxing match to be played by the Marquee of Queensbury’s rules was over.

I am not in politics. I am not with the army. I was in fact a businessman working with my Uncle in his business in the field of Medical Diagnostics. We manufactured HIV testing kits – it was the global killer then. Our motto was the preservation of human life and service to humanity, as we earned a comfortable existence for ourselves. Today I try to find life – wherever I can – but only for a conversation -I don’t feel the need to preserve anyone else’s.

Sabre rattling used to be a good sport in the olympics. I think they still have that every 4 years – but I can’t be sure. None of us really came to now the immediate cause of the war. There was no Archduke Ferdinand to assassinate, no Bay of Pigs and no great sociological divide either.

It was about two brothers who had partitioned their property in 1947 and were sworn to destroy each other – Meet Cain and Abel. Their ideologies were different and this was inevitable. Can’t live with each other – can’t live without.

India started the war – this time around, though one may claim that events across the border precipitated it.
We went across on 29-11, into Pakistan and Bangladesh. The Chinese came across on the 1st of December. Events moved very fast as we hit the Pakistani missile nuclear response systems and air force deployment systems. The operation was called “trishakti” – the third arm moving into Bangladesh to stabilize things there and prevent any incursion on that front. I don’t know what the Red Chinese called their attack – but it hit our northern and North Eastern defenses like a tsunami.

No one else came in. The Israelis wanted IN on our side – but their puppet masters held them back. The Americans, Europeans and the Russians watched.Their two biggest adversaries outdid each other in destroying themselves.
