Mumbai assault still continues

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Vikram @ 23:02

I am watching NDTV very anxiously as I am typing this post. The firing and explosions continues even after 54 hours of gun battle. I am sure that the NSG commandos are doing their best to put an end to this last hurdle at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel. Even the highly trained troops of the Indian security service are finding it difficult to capture the one or two (according to NDTV) terrorists.

This activity like being put by the media and the security officials shows that the terrorists are highly trained and motivated to do anything to make a mark on India. When is it going to end? Well no one knows anything. Everyone can just wait and watch and the events unfold gradually in the course of the third night of battle.

It is sad that the NSG could not save any of the hostages in Nariman House. I feel sorry for the two year old Israely child who was orphaned on his second birthday. I feel sorry many other who were also not lucky.

So, is it time for the people to finally start thinking rationally about their role as citizens of this wonderful and strong nation? Does the common man really think that Enough is Enough? Will they continue to boast about the spirit of India, spirit of Mumbai and what not?

Currently the city and the nation is in shock, anger and distress not only about the scale of the attack but also about the failure of the government and intelligence to avoid this attack. Cleaning up mess is probably the only thing that the goverment and politicians can do.

I heard on the news that there was some politician who was talking about a bandh in Mumbai on the 1st of December. They don’t learn their lessons after all.

Last battle is still on at the Taj. Hope it will end soon.
