Terror Terror Everywhere!!

Its in news everywhere! live coverage, vedio clippings and more and more updates, its all over the news, the Mumbai massacre is there everywhere. with 101 killed till now and 287 injured... and 16 policemen dead, the government is out with condemnation and compensation. what is astonishing is, how could a Lashkar-e-toiba brand of terrorists travel through the Arabian sea and get off at the gateway of India without surveillances or any patrolling by the Indian navy? not just that how could these terrorists all in their early 20's gain access and entry into 3 big hotels of Mumbai- the Trident, Taj and the Nariman Bhavan?

While the operations are still on. and hostages are rescued; the government should sit down and discuss security issues instead of election campaign. are we a soft target then? only when there is a terror do we wake up and talk about nationalist feeling? Hasn't the government officials heard of prevention being better than cure??

What really really pissed me off was, in a far away city like Kolkata, the police woke up to tighten the security only after such incidents. shouldn't we have surveillance all the time and isn't security a thing that should be on 24*7 ? this is the case everywhere, we wait till terror strikes instead of being prepared of such a thing to happen.

Damn the government that boasts of being for the people, by the people and of the people; yet it fails to deliver to the citizens that vote them into power. if we behave like sheep it is bound that others will behave like tyrants. we have no infrastructure and no basic amenities to combat such grave issues like terrorism, we need to come up with a back up plan instead of just sitting back and watching on helpless.

My condolences are with the dead.May peace be with them.
Here's wishing all those injured a speedy recovery.
A big salute to those jawans and policemen who are at their job relentlessly trying to overcome these bloodthirsty leeches who are wasted on this planet earth.

May relief soon be close at hand.
God Speed.

vanilla sky said...

its bad and sad. all we can be is being angry and helpless, which are of no help.
the rising figures of dead and injured in one's tv screen are alarming
as for Kolkata, security is nowhere close to perfection. no body uses metal detector in the the major stations. and if you consider the conjested market places like Gariahat, New market (touchwood) anything can happen

Phoenix said...

@cassandra
thanks a lot.. :)
and yeah its too terrifying for words...

Phoenix said...

@saheli...
truly spoken... i shudder to even think if something ever happens here what will be the magnitude of it.. here people arent even scared.... they roam around carelessly while the police laze around in the sun :(

I feel weird leaving this kind of comment on such a post & with what you are all dealing with...
A giveaway is just a contest for ppl to enter to get a prize, in this case a necklace with pendant! In the morning I will put all the names in a bowl & pick 2 out & send them their prize!

Again, my prayers are with you!

Harshita said...

Yeah it is disheartening... two BIG hotels and Nariman House along with CST, Metro Cinema, Cama Hospital along with the other prominent places in Mumbai have been targetted...

People have been killed...

We can't so anything but pray for those people...and keep our fingers crossed that these men are caught and hostages are saved.

Its a sad sad world we've made for ourselves!! Damn!! The drama's still on!! What kind of sick SOBs would hold so many people hostage (helpless women!!) knowing that they HAVE to be on the other side of the barrel... sooner than later.

Tara said...

It's very sad Raka. Everytime...but we just don't seem to learn from our mistakes...! Our condolences with the families of those who have lost their near ones...

Mithe said...

I will say it again-I am feeling alienated-alienated by my fellow human beings...How can anyone be so callous?(talking about both the government and the terrorists). Shock and disbelief at the extent of the strikes was followed by tears-tears of sadness at such a sorry state of affairs...My prayers too for all the victims AND the martyers-may GOD grant them peace

Aneesh said...
