A year has passed since we were attacked.

A year has passed since; some handful of terrorists took my city Bombay under their control. They intruded into the monumental landmarks over here and started firing randomly the common man. Hundreds were killed and injured. Many brave policemen lost their lives in the battle. It took my government 60 full hours to finally outsmart them. Innocents lost their lives; many stories of individual bravery came into light. It was blood and mayhem all over my city streets. Many were widowed, children orphaned and men lost their loved ones. I want to ask myself, has my city learnt a lesson. Could it happen again, well everyday when an average city dweller of mine goes out to earn a bread, it is not for sure that he will return alive. My city and my country has been a soft target for ages. How do you feel staying in the place you live, in? Is it safe? Is your city safe from any terrorist threats?

u spoke my mind sathya.. and i think we all must put some extra effort in making peace and we need to educate our friends, elders and youngers about helping others and live as one family.. all we people are separated in the name of religions, states, castes, countries and all sought of nonsense and now we have got down to the level which we are not supposed to be.. these aspects are dominating few week minded cold blooded animals to do these kind of terrorist activities.. and the other major aspect is money and selfishness.. which is fueling from behind.. we have had enough and its time to spread this hidden facts to everyone to stop these losses..

Hi Dhanasekar, We need to be united otherwise we are headed for a very big thundering FALL. Just wanted to say if you are aware of the Marathi Politics which is in vogue nowadays. Some corrupt and demented politicians are always for the look of dividing we the citizens of India, by the name of religion, state, language, caste and so on. These are the real culprits because of whom we were always weak and remain weak. But as a citizen if we resolve to bring a change I believe that a change could be brought. Thanks for sharing your views. Bodhi

I’m here at Kolkata and I really don’t worry about these things coz it does not help us common citizens in any way…we all know what the present condition of security all over India is. Maybe the Mumbai police will get complete make-over only after this incident but the police force elsewhere will continue using weapons of the British era, they will continue being ill-trained and ill-equipped and they will continue languishing in their barracks only to come out and die in the face of terrorists and moaists. No Indian city is safe…we go out every morning only with faith in God…maybe Kolkata is a little safe from the terrorists coz they all use Kolkata as a gateway to Bangladesh and Nepal…so they dont want too much security attention in Kolkata…but now the moaists have descended here…so where do we go really except to our prayers rooms, ask for God’s protection and then go out to earn our daily bread!

i some how agree your point. but we need to realize that changes should happen in peoples mind and not in technology.. if we update our security forces.. they will invent a new method.. we need to do something which makes them realize that they are doing wrong..

Hi Sudipta, I am a bengali and I really feel so sorry about my country. But you know what my friend, we always accept the way things are served to us. "WE" can bring the change rather than just moaning and groaning the complaints. I believe it is our attitude that needs a radical change. I thank you so very much for your wonderful response. Bodhi

hello bodhi, it is really difficult to live in peace with terrorists around. i am sure you have heard of the massacre in the philippines which killed 57 (as of present count). women and men, and journalists were killed and dumped in a mass grave. it is being said that it is election related. but it is also a terroristic act. the place where it happened is in the same island where i am in and our city officer have sent red alert to the police because of fear that the man alleged to be behind the killing may be attacked so it will be another war and we dont want it here. ann

Hi Ann, After a real long time. I wonder where are we heading towards. Where will the blind race of greed, power, hatred and evil end! What are we gonna present the coming generation, they surely would curse us. Nothing seems to be pure anymore.

I am saddened, disgusted, by the things terrorists do. It is an age where no one is truly safe. I live in a small town, so feel relatively safe, but since the incident on 9/11 and the more recent shootings of innocent soldiers by a military psychiatrist, it feels, as I said that there is no longer any safe place from this devastation.

Hi Karen, Nobody truly is safe. Things can turn ugly within matters of a few seconds. I really hope and pray that nobody has to undergo "that" ever. I am really so glad to know that you trust in your city and feel safe about it, stay safe, and thank you so much for sharing. Bodhi
