Mumbai’s night turned red , the soul of the city shattered and blood and chaos spilled over. The terror struck the city with long hands claiming the lives of more than 80 and injuring more than 250. The attack was brazzen , audacious and challenging the entire country of India. Its a warning to India , Indian public and shows how ridiculous our politicians are who instead of uniting to fight terror play politics with terror for more votes. Its shamefull that we have politicians of such colours cutting across all parties who are unwilling to join ranks to fight terror but being oppurtunisitics to play communal cards for their own voting arithmatics.
The Indian public should question , should be angry , should seek answers from the political power who are insensitive to the dangers that plague India and our life. Do we ? We at the end of the day tend to forget the events after few days when the dust is settled and bloods are wiped off. We are selfish party and we are partly to be blamed too. We make a mumble only when the terrorist strikes and then later watch the politicians play their callous and dangerous antics. The problem can be contained only if the common public arise to hold the collors ( if possible even the collar bones ) of the Indian politician and seek a solution for it without them playing politics with terror. Do we ?
The terror struck the main areas of mumbai – the hyper-busy CST (formerly VT) rail terminus; the landmark Taj Hotel at the Gateway and the luxury Oberoi Trident at Nariman Point; the domestic airport at Santa Cruz; the Cama and GT hospitals near CST; the Metro Adlabs multiplex and Mazgaon Dockyard . The terror cast its shadow in the streets of Mumbai claiming lives of innocents. Even now as i write this post there are visuals of Taj and Oberai under seige and special commandos trying to secure the hostages.
Meanwhile we lost brave policemen including the senior cops high-profile chief of the anti-terror squad Hemant Karkare , celebrated encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar , Mumbai’s additional commissioner of police (east) Ashok Kamte along with faceless common public and policemen. May their soul rest in peace. May Lord Krishna bless their soul and give their families and friends the strength and support at this most tragic hour.
