I got up today morning to read the newspapers only to read about Mumbai EVERWHERE.
I just finished reading Maximum City, one of THE BEST books that I have ever and I was wondering if I could/should do a review on the book and I read in the newspaper today that Vijay Salaskar is dead!! I almost feel like I know him after reading Maximum City.
I wish I were illiterate deaf, dumb and blind. I wish I didn’t have to read the news every day. I wish I didn’t have to hear about the death of the ATS chief and read in the newspapers about this.
Terrorists come to VT/CST, the busiest terminus ever with grenades and AK-47 and there is no security to stop them.
Terrorists come to the Taj hotel. casually ask which room houses foreigners and are readily given the information with no one to question them
We lose our best cops, our ATS chief and 2 other encounter specialists to petty despicable men from a completely new terrorist outfit which calls itself Deccan mujahideen and all we can do is sit and stare at the TV screens in horror
The terrorists demand that all Mujahideen should be released and instead of taking steps to increase security and prevent such terrorist attacks we will meekly hand over the ruthless terrorists. Why struggle so much to capture and kill the terrorists when at a later point of time you are anyway going to release them.
The impotent government sits and offers condolences to all affected and will probably throw in 1 lakh as compensation for each life lost.
It’s a shame that not only can this country not protect its own people but also puts the lives of people from other countries in danger. So much for Athithi Devo Bhava.
I shudder when I think of the world that we handing over to the next generation
I gulp when my 8 year old cousin asks me why people are bombing and shooting other people. I don’t know how to answer his questions.
I am ashamed of myself.
What is this world coming to?
