Goodbye Blue Sky

I leave Mumbai today…it is tough to leave the city you have grown so accustomed to. I am sure I will miss the local trains and the crowded BEST buses.

A year ago I walked through waist-high water …today it is generally sunny with cloudy spells.
This is what I feel …and with the background of the July 11th bombings it fits too.

Goodbye Blue Sky (Waters) 2:48
“Look mummy, there’s an aeroplane up in the sky”

Did you see the frightened ones?
Did you hear the falling bombs?
Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

Did you see the frightened ones?
Did you hear the falling bombs?
The flames are all gone, but the pain lingers on.
Goodbye, blue sky

Goodbye, blue sky.
Goodbye.
Goodbye.
Goodbye.
“The 11:15 from Newcastle is now approaching”

“The 11:18 arrival….”
