ON WAR AND VIOLENCE

When the answer eluded them, their experience hastened then to their grandfather. Placing the queer object at the feet of the relaxing old man, they looked at him with inquisitive looks for enlightenment on the object. He glanced at it rolling his eyes around it and said, it was the skull of an unknown French Warrior who fought against the English in 1704. When the word 'soldier' darted from the lips of Kasper, little Peterkin desired to probe further and asked for full particulars.

Kasper outlined the battle of Balenhiem, fought in 1704, when Duke Marlborough scored a resounding victory over the French. The fury and devastation of the war was such that the French were routed and massacred ruthlessly by the well equipped British army. The British solders blinded by power lust went round and round the country with fire in one hand and sword in the other, annihilating every conceivable object, living or non-living. Each resembled in his grim shape 'SIVA', the God of destruction and brought untold misery to the people. With shapes dreadful and acts ruthless, they struck terror into the minds of the innocent and helpless women to such degree that some 'childing mothers' delivered babies untimely at heir sight. The innocent and infirm, old and young were butchered mercilessly. The land was filled with the dead and blood followed like rivers.
