Guwahati, Feb.4 (ANI): The militants while unleashing violence forget to realize how the victims of their acts would suffer long after people would forget the incident. It affects so many lives and gravely destroys hopes and dreams of victims families.
Forty four-year-old Dhiren Kakati died in last months bomb blast in Guwahati city. He worked with the Indian railways in Guwahati. His untimely death has left a vacuum in the lives of the family members.
On the fateful day, Dhiren had just gone to market for shopping for his little daughter. But he returned dead. His little children still do not know that that their father will never return home again.
He is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter.
“I want this state of unrest to end and peace to prevail. Bomb blasts should stop. The amount of pain I am going through by losing my husband, I pray and hope that nobody else goes through this,” said Neili Lakshmi Kakati, Dhirens wife.
Near and dear ones gathered at Dhirens house and participated in the prayers for the departed soul. Everyone asked do these militants think even for once before triggering a blast how it would affect others lives.
“By killing innocent people, I don”t know how they (militants) are feeling but for someone who has lost their brother, son and family members it’’s really difficult to bear the pain. No one can compensate for the loss, neither the militants nor the government,” said Dinesh Kakati, victim’’s brother.
Everyone is afraid to go out of their homes. Thee is no surety of lives for people out here as to what may happen next,” said victim’’s brother.
