Whenever a terrorist attack or explosion happens,
Whenever a plane is hijacked or something similar happens,
People are more than ready to blame cops,
Because they are responsible for preventing such ops….
Well people are not completely wrong in doing so,
Because they have the pain of loosing their loved one’s also,
Since now its frequency has increased,
It has made people more frustrated….
Yesterday when I was waiting for my train to back home,
I saw a cop standing right next to me,
Initially I hesitated in asking him questions,
But then I gathered courage and asked for answers….
He first got surprised but then agreed to give his view,
He said such things are also difficult for them to chew,
He said they try their level best to prevent it,
But there is a physical limit to it….
He said the network set up by them of informers,
Is not given protection by government officers,
Because of this they are not passing on the information,
Which is essential for any kind of police action….
He said they have shortage of everything,
Man,machines, technology everything,
In spite of all this we put our best foot forward,
Still sometimes we are termed as coward….
Our cause is not helped by the ruthless media,
He said they just things because they have no idea,
News channels keep comparing us with FBI,
Without knowing the ground realities I ask WHY????
Then my train came and I said goodbye to him,
He said everything can’t be blamed on him,
Then it struck to me they are not as bad as we have made them,
Because being a Cop is more tough then you thought….
