Mumbai Blasts [Nov, 26 2008 - Nov, 29 2008]

Nov, 26 2008, 23:00 IST, yet again, the city of Mumbai was attacked. Terrorists targeted the Taj Palace, Oberoi hotel, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminal (CST) railway station, Nariman Point, BMC office, Cama hospital, hard to accept as truth, that even the hospital is not spared, Colaba Causeway, Cafe Leopold leaving about 200 dead and more than 300 injured. These are the numbers which are out, but all of us know that the damage to human lives is much more than this.

ATS Chief Hemat Karkare shot, Encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar killed, Havildar Gajendra Singh dead. What are their families punished for?
And then there is a statement form the Kerela Chief minster on Monday, Dec, 01 2008, to the family of NSG Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan , after the father of the officer refused to meet him “if it had not been (Major) Sandeep's house, not even a dog would have glanced that way." How can anyone make such a statement when a nation has lost one of its brave soldiers saving his and mine life? Ridiculous!

Taj Operation called as Operation Cyclone lasted for 3 days. While families in different parts of world were celebrating thanksgiving, in India families were torn apart. And our adored politicians, Member of Parliament, in charge of safe and security nation, didn’t even realize what was happening around. It’s time for a desperate change. No use cribbing and whining because it’s we who have given them these powers.
The distinction between this attack and the pervious ones is that this time they have targeted the influential elite people. This will be a game changer, as i can say that there is no worth of the common man’s life in India. Couple of days later, as seen after every attack, everone will forget the entire thing and until this outlook is changed people will go on dying and families will keep on suffering.

Let me not forget to point out the media. All they call for is is the TRP rating. How can they show the positions of the snipers when they knew that the cell phones were still working in the hotels? What I saw in one of the news channel was awful. Instead of helping a victim who was hit by a bullet, they were focusing his bleeding hand. Grow up guys, you are supposed to be cooperative in such situations and not create the mess.

The next thing in the row is the Blame Game, political parties blaming each other. Common guys, stop making it a political issue. Be united at least in such circumstances. Let’s not keep on blaming our neighbors & other political parties for this massacre. What are we doing about all this? D network key members holds influence in the docks of Mumbai, continue to function with impunity, even after the November 26 terror attacks, his smuggling racket remains unrestricted. Despite strong indications that it provided backing to the attackers, the police claim there was no local support.

My heartfelt condolences to the families of victims. Sincere THANKS to NSG and MACROS and all those who lost there lives saving ours.
And Mr. PM MMS please wakeup................ You have a country to look after.
