GUWAHATI, June 27: The kind of respects a memorial erected at Bhootth in the city begs the question – if the memorial is at all meant to ‘honour’ the departed souls or just to ‘dishonor’ them.
The memorial was erected in memory of Kamal Das (Nitu), Sahil Sheikh and Meher Ali, who had been killed in the January 1, 2009 blast at Bhootth in the city. The memorials can’t spell it out who the departed persons exactly were and where they hailed from. Their identity is obscure, so is the kind of hour for them.
At the beginning the memorial had a barbed wire fence in one side. Now only the vestiges of the fencing are seen. What is glaringly visible now is ‘dishonour’, not ‘honour’ for the blast victims. The spot is full of stinking garbage. It is the spot for heaping garbage that is being produced in tonnes every month from the market situated nearby, as though the souls of the blast victims are paid ‘tones of dishonour’ and not ‘tonnes of honour’.
