A tight slap on the face of India, that is Bharat !

Friday, November 28, 2008


In all probabilities, I will be lynched to say this but this is something I must do. Yes, India has been slapped hard on face and we Indians can do nothing except smarting under the insult. When I was looking at the visuals showing the Tajmahal Hotel in flames, this was the exact thought in my mind- "this is the pride of India being gutted." The attack on Mumbai is a taunt to India, that we are helpless. We are paying the price, of being complacent with enemies and acrimonious with our own brethren. They can see through the farce that is Indian security. India is a sitting duck and the "terrorists" have shown yet again that they can hit us anywhere, anytime they wish. We won't retaliate because we are too spineless to do that.

What next ?

The media will create a huge emotional storm making an average Indian choked over the sacrifice of the brave jawans, conveniently letting them forget that this attack on Mumbai is a huge Security scam. What was our intelligence doing,? How did the terrorists reach Mumbai via sea, where were the Coast Guard and the Navy? How did they manage to enter the supposedly high security hotels? Why was ATS and Mumbai Police so ill prepared even during the encounter- that saw Hawaldars crying in terror when fired upon and top officers lost at once? Will the politicians tell us frankly why they are so soft on Terror ?

Coming on politicians, I want to see what the self styled Saviors of Mumbai did to save it. I am waiting for Mr. R. R. Patil to give the "goli ka jawab goli se". The man who was roaring in press and media after Rahul Raj was murdered, must have realized by now what real terrorism is and what real terrorists look like. This time they did not ask to be given a mobile phone to be able to call the Commissioner, they did not come with a "Katta"- they had satellite phones and AK-47s. Hope the Government, Politicians, ATS and people of Mumbai realize now who is their enemy and instead of persecuting fellow Indians, they try to combat terror (provided they can).

This anger has been seeping inside me bit by bit for past few months but now its unbearable., if I don't cry out my heart will burst. Today, I am an angry Indian ! I want revenge ! I want an eye for an eye and do not care if the world goes blind. I may be a "Bimari" for Mumbai (as they say) and will never set foot there in all probabilities, but please , someone stop these terrorists from entering our Mumbai! Time is running out...

1. You wont be lynched for saying this.

2. This is one serious intelligence lapse and thats the only reason Im not angry at the terrorists..after all they are the only ones doing their jobs.

3. Why is it taking so long? There was no co-ordination between different agencies. There wasn't enough protective gear.

4. Our main problem is who is at the top. Whether its our top cops who wont give up power (hence the no co-ordination) or our politicians who will run to Mumbai for political mileage or we do a no-show when we truly know it.

5. You wont be a burden on Mumbai. But people who arent doing anything or are adopting the 'Chalta-hai' attitude are the burdens.

6. Im extremely happy that you said our Mumbai especially after the conversations we have had...

I"m totally with you on this one. I have lived my life so fat through some pretty outrageous attacks but this one just leaves me sad more than shocked. the two hotels that are now nothing more than visuals of smoke, fire, gun battles and explosions, used to be a place for parties and celebrations for my family.

most of my birthdays have been celebrated in one of these two hotels and today i am nothing but sad, feels as if my very own memories are being marred and this gets personal.

the problem here is that you and i can react but can't act. unfortubately for us, the ones who can act do nothing but react. they play the blame game, talk of lapses but nothing gets better. if anything these terrorists only seem to be getting better at their game.

i really wish there was one foolproof way of gettng back, at least being able to keep ourselves safe. i've known this city in & out since the time it used to be bombay... sadly today nothing feels like it used to be.

absolutely... politics play a huge role in this.. god knows how many MP's were involved.. terrorists were very accurate ... well planned mission..they knew the complete layout of the nariman house, oberoi and taj area.. so presumably ... there are people involved... only good education can stop all theses.

This is clearly an act of war...

But how should we react? We must go all out for internal security asap.. And yes.. just as you said, reply in means of eye for an eye. We must launch a counter covert war on the holy lands.. one to our west, and the other in our right armpit..

Enough is enough.. have you seen any powerful nation worth its salt being terrorized by small rabid dogs?? Any? Any of the white nations? Any of the yellow nations?

Completely agree with you on this. And if immediate action starts being taken, rather than delaying it, the better.. If the great land of the free takes the enemy's side, we should give a loud straight reply bang in the face that talks of peace by the only country that has ever used the nuke bomb on civilian populations don't sound good..

After 9/11 there was no attack on US. Why can't we learn from them? Its not the resources but the will that is lacking- or maybe the concern.

most shocking that our forces couldnt bring down those bloody terrorists much sooner,.. which obviously raises certain objective questions..

Preetam Adwani said...

Yes, i agree, i was really shockin.

The Solitary Writer. said...

i agree on this.....

we r the victim of terrorsim.....its like such incident in almost every month or so.....but different places like mumbaio,bangalore,delhi,ahmadabad etc....where r we heading to....its going to affect out countries development and progress....wht are the leaders doing......i agree on that rahul raj thing

whre is the fat rat on mumbai ,who claimed mumbai to be his jagir and provoked gundas all over mumbai to kick other non maharashtrian people....who eventually wanted to divide the country on the basis of region and community......if such ppl r still in our country then,.....we r not going to progress.....

peace!!!

While whole of India, may be the whole world, was looking at the hostage situations and thinking of the poor souls who are trapped inside, our politicians already started blaming each other and trying to play vote-bank politics.

There was talk of some other leader who said on television that his party was debating whether or not to call a "bandh"(strike) on Dec 1st. I couldn't help but think how low can people go. And to think the leader of the Opposition party and the Prime Minister couldn't even unite on a day like this (just to travel together to Mumbai) gives us an idea how rotten Indian politics are

ndia's curse of vote-bank politics is going to play a heavy role in what has to come. I can only hope people see past their infusions and realize we are all Indians- not Hindus, Muslims, Christians etc. I want to help people see that we can only get through this by uniting with fellow Indians, forgetting our cultural differences, religion, caste and becoming one as Indians. I want to spread the message that "All Muslims are not terrorists", which is the major message spread through the "Whisper propaganda" by the communal parties of India.

The way out for the short term. Find the real minds behind these attacks, find out the home addresses of all the terrorist killed. Deploy 100 crores and hire people in Pak, And get all these people including all there family members killed. Seems brutal. Well what are we being put through???/

I can agree somewhat.. we can reply in a "Munich way"

RR.Shenoy said...

One thing i tell you, i wont be surprised if another act like this takes place somewhere else in india, because now i am very sure that the number of terrorists here would have out numbered the cop's count. Their skills of deep infiltration, i guess, goes beyond that of our intelligence. now they they have entered our country in great numbers, we have become really help less.

No Hope unless you strike their homes, their families so that even the parents start fearing brutal death if they let their children become terrorists. There is no other way.
