Change is constant...
26th November 2008, India saw one of it's bloodiest and most devastating terrorists attacks on Mumbai...the heart of trade and business in the country...who did it and why they did it still looms over like the dark clouds on our countries political instability. We whine for them, and cry for them... all the other cities are put on HIGH "alert" and there is a policy of check one...check all!! But this paranomia lasts for a week and maximum for a fortnight until another devastating situation takes place.
Two days back i herad a first hand story of one of the hostages trapped the Oberoi Trident for 48 hours during this attack. He was not shaken...however his story shook me up. These so called terrorists have such an immaculate way of planning, they know what they are doing and how they are doing it. The funny part is that all illegal stuff is done with a lot of plannig but what should be done is taken in a very lax manner. I visited South City Mall two days before the blast and two days after the blast...two days before they just looked at my face ( as though it will be written that i'm carrying ammunitions on my face!!) and two days later they made me go through an intensive check!! What amuses me is the nature of people to take notice only after the harm is done. I kept questioning my father how a Five star hotal had no proper security. A place where so many foreign nationals and other people go had no defence mechanism. We have let down the dignity of our country once again. But with this attack, an internal attack has been launched. One political party against another. Every second minister resigning or being susupended. Is this all a bloody joke???
I do not understand.. I love my country..but i do love what is going on. Hindus are saying Musilims did it and muslims are saying that hindus did it. Why?? Does Mumbai only reside hindu citizens?? Does Shah rukh Khan or Aamir Khan not go to Taj or Oberoi even once?? Or is it like all the muslims in the country have no work so they say come lets kill all the hindus and have their cows!! for god's sake, i'm just so sick of this blame game.
When will this war stop?? When will we learn to love the good and hate the bad equally??? when will equality come??
Recently Rs.1.6 MILLION was spent on a Fat Retired Argentinian footballer to get him down to kolkata and "honour" him!! But when it comes to security of the country and it's people, no one seems to be bothered.
It is high time to take a desicion... Either we let everything be as it is or stand up against the illeaglities and stupidities performed in our country!
It's high time we stop history repeat itself!

And yeah.. I don't think equality will ever come, the thing is that we need to find a way to live with it..

Please dont find this note a privvy to your privacy, however, I somehow reached your page (too much time in hand). I read your blogposts to find a bit about you, since not every girl has SoD lyrics on them.

Anyway, your questions are intigruing for a 18 year old, and the answers, well are all over the place. Its upto you how you see them. And kudos to you for 'Smokin down'. It hit just the spot.
