I think, They are not, Our cities are not safe even after 1 year. Our politicians are corrupt , bureaucrats, police etc. Remember it was the police that helped the RDX land on our sea coast and they gave it safe passage to its destination. BOMBAY BLASTS. Despite all the commotion and outburst of the public against our politicians following the attacks, nothing seems to have changed. The event seems to have been forgotten, swept under the carpet, and the exhuberance for change has subsided. It seems as though internal security is being taken for granted. We are again committing harakiri by not learning from our mistakes. What do you think?

Hi abhishek, No. Still our cities not in Safer hands. Everything is public. There is no working surveillance camera, No security guards in public places... etc.. So If you have "Diwali bomp", you can play it in public place. No one ask you the question. instead, they will get afraid of you...!!! :)

If dying is inevitable one would rather die in terrorist shoot out than in a road accident. For one thing our roads are more unsafe than our cities as a whole from terrorists attacks. Our corrupt politicians have only one thing in any of these issues: One more way to pocket money. Let's say some compesation was awarded to the next of kin. I doubt how many would have got any. Thanks to you know who.

Do not blame politicians. Who are politicians? We make them politician. So blame on yourself. We forgot every thing. We forget love for nation. We are giving vote to Congress because they showing that they are secular. We give vote to BJP because we thing that they care for Hindus. We give vote to Raj thakare because we thinks that he will grow Marathism. So we himself responsible for these. Our cities are not safe because we do not care about them. If their is no traffic police people never going to follow rules.

Nitin, if all the politicians are as bad as one another, whom do we vote for. We make them politicians with the hope that they will bring up the nation, but they all are cast in the same mould. Whome should we then vote for ? If we dont vote, we are doomed, if we vote, we are doomed. I have found only one politician now in India who was poor. Lal Bahadur Shastri, and because he was honest, he was killed. So this is the story of us poor voters. Understand ? Besides, Id rather have a country ruled by secular people for India belongs to one and all.

We do not need secularism if we can not maintain secular nature. If this country is secular why a muslim can not keep his child name a Hindu name and why not a Hindu can use a muslim name for his child?

I agree with you, the cities are just the same and there are no extra steps taken by the government to prevent any future attacks.

Same here in the Philippines terrorists and corrupt politicians is also our problem here. I remembered that incident in your country we can't ensure our safety now a days. Politicians here also are corrupt and greedy for power. Just recently there's incident of massacre here in Mindanao because of political rivalry. Many civilians and mediamen been killed.

even after 1 year is completed for 26/11 event but still I don't think India is safe mainly the major cities of India like Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Calcutta, Ahmedabad,Chennai ,Kolkata and like this so many. I think till india will not take any step toward terrorism, India will never be safe.
