The day after..

It is hard to cope up with what just happened and what is still happening in Mumbai.
Sympathy, Anger, Restlessness, Willingness to help, etc. – all confound the holiday shrouded mind.

I am using this post as an incoherent blurt…I am not an expert in International affairs. But as a responsible citizen of India and of a peace loving world, I have the right to ask these questions.

* How about the Indian government acting right now? While the rescue and recovery operations are underway, let us use our International goodwill and apply as much pressure we can on ISI and ask them to better point us in the direction of these hideouts in Pakistan? I am pretty positive if ISI works with us (of course they won’t), we can probably uncover 75% of potential future threats to India..

* How about a crackdown on all Indian mosques beginning today? No excuses. I respect my Muslim friends’ right to worship – But these are not normal times..So if you are a moderate muslim, thank you for being so – but it is not enough that you condemn these cowardly acts – you have to work with the government…Right now. Yes. Right now.
You can still go to mosques. But you will have military presence..Sorry – that’s the only way the Indian government can snub Madarasas.

* How about getting rid of the myth that India is a secular country and all political parties will have to do whatever appeasement work they have to do to get their vote banks? Do what is right for India.

36 hours. Nariman House is still under siege. Taj and Oberoi – Conditions still unclear.


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
