Thank you for your comments on the terror in Mumbai. I have three points.
1. I agree that it is important to check ourselves first instead of blaming immeidately Pakistan or Babgladesh. THis is an esay way of escaping our responsibility to give security and protection to our people. I am shocked to see how the parties begin to politicalise the whole event, forgetting what people are undergoing.) With money and power, one seems to do anythinng in this country. Any criminal or terorist with HiFi English is looked at almost as immaculate and clean. How much we can trust in our corrupt system where with money one can easily pass through any barriers or security?
2. Human life is so preciious and it is a shame that one human kills another without conscience. It tells upon the violent culture that we have tolerated in many parts of our country. Violence has intered into our blood streems and we have learnt to praise violence, be it in films or in daily life where the mafia has a free hand. When we are tolerating Toy guns with our childrens innocent hands, how can we blame the grown ups with real guns?
3. Evey Human life is precious, whether it is of rich or poor. It is very painful to note that the media has been covering so much on the Taj and Oberoi so much that they did not even bother to focus on the innocent lives lost in the Railway station. Is it also because the media is ignorant of certain basic knwledge about social decency?
We have a long way to go to become a cultured nation. Probablly our school children, the civil society and even our parliamentarians need to be educated.
