Mumbai blast

How many more blasts should occur in Mumbai before the people can feel "We are reasonably safe"? I checked many websites for more information but I guess its too early or maybe the sites are waiting for something more sensational to occur. If any of you have more information, please post.


Have people started talking about Mumbai spirit yet? Or have they stopped yet? I was talking to my good friend in Mumbai and she made a good point. Be it, NYC or London or Mumbai, life would go on even after bombs attack the trains, towers and what not. And you know why? If people don't go about their lives, they won't get their day's moolah. No moolah -> starvation-> death. Simple as that. So every time some attack happens, people should stop talking about the spirit. Even the victims might get annoyed.

And here are some sites that might provide more information.
Netsuffering also blogs about it.

as long as ppl return to work the next day and call it the mumbai spirit without demanding anything from the politicians, i see the frequency and intensity of blasts on the rise.

Very frustrating to see such events happen time and again. And its agonizing to see people taking these events as part of their life.

It is indeed terrible. Imsai iyer : v.v.true.. People are back to work today. trains started running last night.

But i would like to point out one thing.. I was.. rather still am against one particular religious community coz the terrorists belong to that community.Most often when these kind of terrorist attack happens, I'd start abusing that community, in particular.

But last evening, when thousands were stranded on the road to get back home, most of them who offered biscuits and water to the commuters (strandedin Mahim area )belonged to that community.
When purushan mentioned this to me, i was ashamed

Assume there are 1 million terrorists in the world.
Assume all of them are muslims.
Total number of muslims in the world is 1.79 billion.

For less than 1 percent of the community doing wrong, is it fair to penalise the entire community.

I have also gone back and forth with my feelings on this issue. As you say there are nice people everywhere. Bad ones seem to impact more upon us.

When Additional Commissioner Mr. Pasricha was asked how will he make the people of Mumbai feel safe when they travel in trains, he replied by saying it was not his job and the Railway Police should do that job. My question to Mr. Pasricha " How did the terrorist get to the railway station ? Is'nt that his responsibility ?

The perpetrators have merely fried their own behinds. Deeds like these will result in a comprehensive victory for the BJP in the next elections, under whose rule they have always scurried for cover.

From another angle, they might have decided to make full use of the slackness of the ruling party, knowning that the backlash against their community won't be so severe. So go into blasting overdrive while the 5 yrs last.

And the unemployed thugs of the Shiv Sena would be delighted to use this to launch their political revival with the see-what-they-did-to-our-bombay approach.

All in all, troubled times ahead for Bombay.

syam, Minsaara kanavu prakash Raj maari irukkey dialogue.;-) yes, thattidalam.
I, now whats up?
True Prabhu. Hurts to note that the value of life is so low.
Bubby, at least for the sake of some good friends in that community we have/have had, I wouldn't subscribe to that view.
Sagar, I like many aspects of Mumbai. "in the world?" Guess you haven't commuted much there.;-)
Poor dear elvis, shirking responsibility is so us. Don't get angry.
TTM, your final sentence said it all.

It was heart wrenching to see the photos of the blast. Courtesy: The Bad old TOI. I agree with Srini oops Imsai Iyer. As long as these people r gonna say "Nothing can put down our spirits, we shall continue to work" nothing can be done about it.

When Mumbai Govt motivates the cops and Custom Officials to manhandle everyone be at the airport, roads cant they not check the security apart from looting??

God save amchi mumbai...
