Did you listen to the Prime Minister’s address? Sonia Gandhi made her address even before his. I had been waiting eagerly for it. When he finally made it, I didn’t know what to think.
'Strongly condemns.' These are the 2 words everybody used (Barack Obama included.).
I’d like to know what exactly they mean by it.
Just how much is their condemnation worth (Or us swearing for that matter. Everybody’s swearing at the terrorists.)?
If words of displeasure could end this, I’d have enough to say for you and me, and we would be in a happier place now. These are not little boys with genteel natures, to be insulted by our contempt.
Manmohan Singh said, “We are using the strongest possible measures to ensure that this is not repeated.” Then he said something about how confident he is that the people of India will maintain their unity and integrity.
Wasn’t this what he said last time? That this wont be repeated?
Why all this airy talk?
If the law can’t protect us, who will?
At this point, I’d like to tell you of some very strong things that Shobha De had to say.
“Enough is enough. I want to tell all politicians not to use this as an opportunity for their political agenda. Do not come to Mumbai. We pay millions to give these politicians Z level security (I am yet to find out what this is.). Remove security from them and give it to us. Let even a hair on these politicians be touched by this crisis.”
With regards to politicians.
The virtual world is ablaze with arguments frustration and emotions you may never have thought could be emoted through the www.
Young people today do 2 things- party and have fun. Or stay indoors and online.
And pretty much everybody is bashing up the politicians.
Whose side am I on? Certainly not the khadi-clads. But this is addressed to all the youth who have been lamenting. I’ve heard “India is never going to change its so corrupt” a lot in my little life. And I hate it.
Did you go out and vote? Because if you didn’t, then you are in no position to hold by the collar the man you had no part in putting into office. If you did vote, you have every right and responsibility to do so. But if you did not, you are not in the right place for bad mouthing.
So don’t whine. Don’t complain. Bite your tongue and stay put till the next elections.
Either vote. Or contest.
Its not called a democracy for nothing.
Some more questions, for anybody who can answer them.
So far only big cities have been targeted. Why? What if they decide to target less popular cities, where they can easily cause the same number of casualties, and things will be much easier for them since no one was expecting it? Is anybody thinking about this?
Where are these weapons being manufactured?
Who supplies them?
How are they smuggled?
Who is sponsoring this?
Why wasn’t our intelligence able to pick up on this?
How did the terrorists get into the hotels, with all their weaponry?
